Ever had a broken heart? Send the relics to this L.A. museum

USATODAY    2/14/2017

Among the many items on display at the Museum of Broken Relationships here is something any person who has ever had his or her heart broken would appreciate: an apology card. “I know I am entirely undeserving, but I hope one day you can forgive me,” the card reads. “I cannot express how sorry I am for the pain I’ve caused you.” The item was donated anonymously to the museum from a jilted lover.

There are restaurants you go to because you’re hungry, and restaurants you go to because they’re cool. There are restaurant you go to because they’re close—the old soldiers of your particular block, with rooms as comfortable as faded blue jeans and a bartender who knows your name.

Review: Vegetable-focused Bad Hunter blooms along Randolph's Restaurant Row

Chicago Tribune    2/9/2017

Let me just say that "Bad Hunter" is the best name for a veggie-focused restaurant I've ever heard. The phrase "bad hunter" is the punchline to a silly vegetarian joke. And it's a fine name for a restaurant that leans heavily toward greens and grains but doesn't take itself too seriously.

On your way into Gwen, the Hollywood restaurant run by Curtis Stone and his brother, Luke, a former florist, you will probably spend a few seconds browsing the retail butcher’s counter, a display of Victorian lavishness — fat birds, richly marbled meats and intricate pâtés. I am a fan of McCall’s Meat & Fish Co., Belcampo Meat Co. and Alexander’s Prime Meats, but there is nothing in Los Angeles...
