In the former home of the long-beloved Max restaurant, things may look familiar…but changes are afoot. Changes that turn market finds into Potted Foie Gras With Roasted Grapes and Brioche, and Pork Belly With Georgia Grits and Peaches.
Things to do for September 10, 2009
Indoor Street Parties, Fried Clams and Korean Malts
The weekend hasn't given up on a summer body.
Launching today, Culver City's industrial palace of Korean BBQ is pushing some tempting new Seoul-inspired items like SeoulTown Po'Boys at lunch, with sesame shrimp tempura on a French roll, and later, a Galbee Pot Pie filled with short rib. Also—a Korean Malt, with scotch, soju and Coca-Cola. Korean poodle skirt not included.
In LA, as you inch along in traffic, you start wondering about the questionably sane drivers all around you. So did photographer Andrew Bush, who even braved the 405 to snap strangely transfixing pics of his fellow travelers. Like any true Angeleno, he eventually found himself next to Angelyne.
Your new favorite punchbowl-stocked sports bar kicks off the NFL season with live standup at halftime—and postgame "highlight" specials. That means a rotating selection of half-off food—could be a Pulled-Pork Sandwich and a Banana Split—as well as half-off pitchers. Touchdown.
In a nod to its Italian roots, the NYC-but-not corner spot will transform into a festive bastion of street food—Sausage and Pepper Sandwiches, Fried Clams, the infamous Rice Balls—slung from red-and-white paper baskets. Order too much, then find someone to share with.
