In the heart of a business laden Downtown Los Angeles is a venue that's unique.

"Ciudad Restaurant" is more than another local joint with the usual Happy Hour of blaring events or commentaries, rambling news and predictable appetizers.

It is undoubtedly one of the coolest places in the city of the Angels. This restaurant is opened for lunch, happy hour, and dinner and serves a wonderful range of Latin and South American food you'll ever experience. Yes, it’s an encounter beyond words. Dining here is glorious. The atmosphere is soft lighting, stone floors, high top chair seating... Read More

Just when you may have thought you'd exhausted the downtown Los Angeles eatery scene, take a moment and look. On one corner there's a "Bar-B-Que King" Cafe. Directly next to that is a venue called, "Refill Restaurant??"

But, on the corner of Grand and 7th is a heavenly haven. Bottega Louie. High ceilings with a touch of elegance, decorative open space giving an invitation for casual to intimate conversation at any table. The natural lightening streaming through the large windows and brick oven in plain view with conscientious attendants’ only adds to the ambiance.

I was born and raised in New Orleans. I haven't lived there since I was 21 years old. And yet no matter where on this planet I may hang my hat and rest my weary bones, New Orleans will always be the place I most think of as home, even though I doubt I will ever live there again. As the only child of gourmand parents, who generally took me along rather than hire a baby sitter as they ate there way through New Orleans' restaurants-- both a huge number of venerable New Orleans eateries long favored by our family and my parents' picks of the most likely to be fantastic of the new openings....

Wishing to write today on a lighter subject matter than my usual rants about the social and political wrongs and evils in the world, I decided to weigh in (literally!) on the upcoming football season and give you a dish handed down thoughout the generations in Brooklyn, N.Y. There would be no true justice in the world did not a boy who grew up in the Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst areas not chime in on this critical and important matter.

Anyone not familiar with the areas mentioned above should know that the neighborhoods are predominantly Italian and Italian-American, and they are a people... Read More

With food shortages ongoing globally, and with some areas of the planet in such dire straights that actual food riots have taken place, it seems almost comical in a sense to see the reports in the U.S. media of families having to resort to feeding their families Spam several times a month.

Ah Spam! The gelatinous gooey mass of some form of pork that we were all forced to eat as children. Our parents told us that it was good for us, and we spit it out when they weren't looking. As we grew older, we came to realize that our parents were in the unenviable position of having to figure out... Read More

A recent article by Theresa H Hall bemoaned a skillet full of butter that burned black when she turned her back on it, just for a minute. I advised Theresa that sauteing vegetables or meat in butter should always be done at low heat. Stir every minute or two and watch for your desired doneness, but leave the heat on low. If you don't want to push your food around the pan for what may be a long time on low add an equal or near equal amount of olive oil and stir on medium. But be sure to keep the food moving in the pan. If you're making gumbo on the other hand, you'll want to use only oil... Read More
