Highland Park Greyhound Bar vandalized with anti-Semitic swastika

Not funny

The Highland Park Greyhound battles an anonymous tagger who managed to mark the mellow sports bar bathroom with a swastika. Property tells LA Taco that while they think this is an isolated incident and not directly related to them (two of the co-owners are Jewish), they still call it “an attack on the whole community. of Highland Park ”, particularly because of the bar’s cross-cultural popularity, particularly on Dodger’s days.

Congratulations to the team

Los Angeles hotspot n / naka is in thin air today, having joined several dozen other restaurants on a Food and wine / Travel and leisure a list, quite simply, of the best restaurants in the world, as reviewed by none other than Besha Rodell. the kaiseki restaurant is the only Los Angeles participant on the list.


The Sunday in Brooklyn team is back for another pop-up, this time at Venice at the Rose. The East Coast group is gearing up to soon open its restaurants inside the Hoxton Hotel in downtown, including the Sibling Rival on the lobby level.

Behind the pie

The Eastsider takes a good look at the folks at Masa of Echo Park, who are celebrating their 15th anniversary this year. Owners Rob Rowe and Rhonda Reynolds just say they “really, really missed the Chicago flatbed pizza” when they got the idea to open, but now the place has taken a life (and embraced a community) apart.

Cool season

More ice cream news in Pasadena, as it looks like Wanderlust Creamery is set to take over the old Coolhaus space next month. This puts them close to the new Salt & Straw which is also coming to Old Pasadena.

Big changes

Hollywood & Highland will soon be getting a facelift, thanks to new owners pledging to invest millions in the tourist monolith of shopping and dining. While nothing is formal, Urbanize LA notes that this should mean an influx of new dining opportunities for one of the busiest corners of the whole city.

Hello friends! We are extremely happy to officially announce our opening from early to mid-September. As you all know, Pie-Not previously operated there and did a damn good job serving Aussie style meat pies for six years. Being big fans of pies (obviously), we would make it a ritual to stop by for Australian pies and donuts from @sidecardoughnuts whenever we were in the area. It’s a bit surreal now to be about to operate a Pop Pie Co. there. We realize that closing a small business is often difficult and sad, but it was a much different situation. Ryan, the previous owner, had other business commitments to take care of and chose us to negotiate a sale that we were taking over. We thank Ryan for trusting us with his beloved community of Costa Mesa. We feel a strong sense of responsibility to come and not only serve our award-winning pies, but also be responsible neighbors to our community. We set out to create a community space that offers savory, handmade and innovative meat pies, sweet pies and exceptional coffee. Expect the same menu as our shop at University Heights in San Diego, including handmade breakfast pies, salted meat (our Aussie Meat Pie is insane), vegetarian and vegan pies, pies sweet by the slice or whole and a specialty coffee program including roasts from our buds at @heartroasters! We can’t forget the PiesCream with ice cream from our sister company @stellajeansicecream! Looking forward to serving you! ❤️. . . NOTE: Please follow @eatpoppie for updates on the opening of Costa Mesa and to see what we’re all about. We will transfer this account and keep it active until the end of September! Thank you! . . . #poppieco #inpiewecrust #eaterla #bestfoodoc #eatpieandbehappy #orangecountyregister #foodbeast #latimesfood #orangecountyfood
