Review: Jonathan Gold finds a lesson in up-to-date good taste at Gjusta in Venice

latimes.com — To get to Gjusta, you tool past Santa Monica's Main Street boutiques, past Jonathan Borofsky's leering ballerina clown on the corner of Main and Rose, and turn left just after the giant Frank Gehry binoculars that mark Google's Los Angeles offices. You will see the sprawling Gold's Gym mothership, and arms the size of hippopotamus legs, on your left.

Hot sauce taste test: A walk-off for Sriracha?

latimes.com — Like many of you, we in the Food section read David Pierson’s report on the San Gabriel Valley’s beloved Sriracha sauce with pleasure a couple of weeks ago.

Review: At Terrine, Kris Morningstar becomes a chef's chef

latimes.com — If you are fond of visiting Los Angeles restaurants in their first months, you have run into chef Kris Morningstar a lot, probably more times than you can imagine. He has cooked at Shutters and AOC, Grace, Meson G and Opaline, Casa and the weird rooftop-to-table restaurant Blue Velvet.

The Year of the Goat, in 8 recipes

latimes.com — Today marks the first day, and welcome to it, of the Chinese Year of the Goat, seen in lavish home-cooked feasts or at San Gabriel Valley restaurants that might sneak in a dragon dance or two in the course of the evening’s festivities. Happy New Year to you all.

Restaurant review: Pok Pok Phat Thai in Chinatown, a learning process

latimes.com — Pok Pok Phat Thai is the first Los Angeles outpost of Andy Ricker, the American-born chef who has built a small Thai food empire in Portland, Ore., and New York. It is a small counter built into the Chinatown mall storefront where the chicken pho dive Hoan Kiem used to be, right down from Chego, and even in its earliest weeks a line curled out its door.

Restaurant review: Bowled over by the Bashu fish at Fang's Kitchen

latimes.com — Water-boiled fish is one of the most impressive dishes in the Sichuan repertoire: an enormous bowl of vegetables and broth bloodied with a half-inch of vivid chile oil.

First impression: Fideo madness at Colonia Publica

latimes.com — Greenleaf Avenue, as it runs through Uptown Whittier, is rapidly becoming the Main Street of Pocho America, a welter of skateboard shops, black-clothing boutiques and comic book stores, record stores, coffeehouses, and slinky cafes - everything a subversive Eastside teenager could possibly need. Whittier natives Pat Nixon and MFK Fisher wouldn’t recognize the street at all.

Jonathan Gold drops anonymous restaurant critic mask

latimes.com — I have posed for pictures shrouded in gauze, wearing a dinosaur mask and shaded into a Hitchcockian silhouette. My face has been obscured by giant wineglasses, beer steins, menus, stacked dim sum steamers, Wheaties boxes, a Thomas the Tank Engine and a perforated tortilla. My Facebook profile picture is of a Jonagold apple.
