Meet Pace’s New, More Central Doppelgänger

Maybe you like the food at Pace, but despise pleasant canyon drives. If that’s the case, you’ve finally won. Because now there’s Pace Joint, a centrally located arm of the favored Italian spot serving the same lobster ravioli and smoked salmon pies on Sunset. In the future, there will be a Pace for everyone.

Now open, Pace Joint, 7860 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, 323-745-5141

Thursday
This Gets Considerably Fouler Than Cirque du Soleil
ABSINTHE YOU’VE BEEN GONE

This Gets Considerably Fouler Than Cirque du Soleil

Absinthe made the trip from Las Vegas for a five-week run at L.A. Live. Check it out. You just might find yourself horribly disrespected by the emcee to the laughter of hundreds between some mind-blowing, death-defying exploits. Might as well humor them since they made the drive and all.

Saturday
Thai Jerky, Fried Roti and 28 More Reasons to Go Here
THE LONG HELLO

Thai Jerky, Fried Roti and 28 More Reasons to Go Here

So Long, Hi. That’s Downtown’s new Thai spot with an outdoor patio studded with palm trees. It’s currently serving 30 dishes like Thai jerky and fried roti with green curry, plus it’s got a weekday happy hour with $5 pad thai and $2 beers. It’s also a pretty awkward greeting.

Sunday
Sundays Were Made for Precisely This
MAR ATTACKS

Sundays Were Made for Precisely This

You have radical ideas for Sunday. Like curling up at the Mar Vista’s new Sunday brunch and enjoying goat cheese chilaquiles, cured-salmon-loaded spuds, live music and morning mimosas with some friends. You’re the most dangerous person in America right now.

Union Is Infusing Your Dinner With Melody

Your ears wanted us to speak with you. They’re feeling overlooked at dinner. So bring them to Union on Monday, where Bruce Kalman will pair a four-course prix fixe dinner to an accompanying playlist seeping through your wireless headphones. And maybe ask them about their day occasionally.

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
