Things to do for March 07, 2018
Meet Dominique Ansel's Burger Pop-Up. Then, Meet Some Pork Belly That Was Inspired by Churros.
You're Eating Well This WeekendBy Hadley Tomicki
You Always Said Pork Belly Should Be More Like Churros
Tonight, chef Kyle Schutte debuts Revision, a conceptual dinner pop-up featuring savory dishes inspired by desserts. Think recipes like pork belly with churro-puffed skin and chipotle dulce de leche. And vanilla-dusted Hamachi influenced by red velvet. Wait, whoa.
Pamplemousse. So Much Better With Booze.
Are you or the one you're dating a little LaCroix obsessed? Contentment may be found at Westwood's the Hideout, where an all-LaCroix cocktail menu is being served poolside. Maybe you'll do the French Kiss with cognac, amaro, lemon and LaCroix berry. Or just have a LaCroix neat, no chaser.
The Best of the Best Short Films
The Oscars are over. But you still want to sit in darkness judging films on their style, story and merit. Fine. The LA Short Film Festival offers you the best in comedy, drama, horror, documentary and other genres running under an hour this weekend. Come Monday, you're on your own.
Smorgasburg by the Sea
Smorgasburg, Downtown's bonanza of viral eats, is heading to the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday. There, you'll find all of its mesquite-grilled lobsters, Indian tacos and small-batch mozzarella sticks served right by the sea. Along with great ideas for your reboot of one of those '80s movies where people switch bodies.
A Burger Pop-Up From Dominique Ansel
Dominique Ansel is turning part of his restaurant, 189, into the Dom's Burgers pop-up for the week. Expect four kinds of burgers (including lamb and fried chicken varieties), plus a faux outdoor park setup that features a lemonade stand, a nuts cart and fake pigeons. Feel the Hollywood magic.
