I grew up in New York City, where there were Little Italys everywhere. Not just the famous one in downtown Manhattan, between Chinatown and the Village, but in the Bronx (Arthur Avenue), Brooklyn (Bensonhurst) and pretty much the whole borough of Staten Island. I moved to San Francisco, where there’s a thriving Little Italy in North Beach (also next to Chinatown). And then, to Los Angeles, where there used to be a Little Italy on the east side of Dodger Stadium.
L.A. Brisket is definitely not the restaurant I expected to find in the location where I found it. If you come from the north, you’ll go past a branch of the largely Chinese 99 Ranch Market, along with Daiso Japan, Pho 2000 and It’s Boba Time Cafe. If you come from the south, you’ll go through Little India, the largest Indian community in Southern California, with an estimated 120 shops offering items from the Asian subcontinent.
Every day, for three meals a day — breakfast, lunch and dinner — Henry’s Cuisine serves a trio of menus that feature dishes you might expect, and dishes you might not expect. This Hong Kong-style cafe in Alhambra is run by a pair of Henrys — Henry Tu and Henry Chau — who have created one of Valley Boulevard’s most madcap restaurants, packed with extended families, confronting tables piled with dishes from a variety of worlds. How the kitchen manages it all is well beyond human understanding.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
