HOLLYWOOD: Eater gives us a peek inside Mission Cantina, the latest in George Abou-Daoud's mini-empire of Hollywood bars and restaurants. There's tequila. Lots and lots of tequila.

LOS ANGELES: Now that South LA has banned fast food, the taco truck war has re-commenced, and you legally have to ask for water before a restaurant can give it to you, the city has bigger fish to fry, and if it is fried, the restaurant needs to list the calorie count. As soon as next month, the city may require chain restaurants to disclose their calorie count.

LOS ANGELES: Is Glendale the new Culver City? Palate chef/owner Octavio Becerra seems to think so. Octavio, along with J. Gold, Michael Cimarusti and Evan Kleiman debate exactly what LA cuisine means.
