The 20 Hottest Restaurants in LA Right Now, October 2017

Where to eat right now in the City of Angels

More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends, and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? Restaurant obsessives want to know what’s new, what’s hot, which favorite chef just launched a sophomore effort. And while the Eater 38 is a crucial resource covering old standbys and neighborhood restaurants across the city, it is not a chronicle of the ‘it’ places of the moment.

Gresescent: Serving Ice Cream Magic In DTLA

Gresescent opens in DTLA and they’re serving lots of fresh velvety ice cream magic

As a kid, I enjoyed to chant, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!” I usually did this when, a) ice cream was involved, or b) I wanted ice cream involved. So touche. We all have our moments, and mine just so happened to revolve around ice cream. Why? Because ice cream is delicious and special. It’s a simple pastime that’s easily enjoyed by everyone regardless of age. Qualities like those are what make Gresescent a memorable and tasty place that will make you fall in love with ice cream all over again. They’re centrally in South Park on 8th and Olive Street, close to all the construction, but don’t let that ward you off. Recently, I had the chance to meet with Gresescent’s co-founder Justin Chung to talk about the magic of ice cream, and what makes Gresescent, Gresescent (pronounced: “gres-uh-suh-nt”). There’s more to a name than meets the eye.

LA’s Essential Weekday Breakfasts

Brunch is always a welcome retreat on the weekends, but it’s a little bit harder to find places that serve a great breakfast during the week. Since this city hosts so many people who work from home or get to enjoy odd hours (read: actors, writers, etc), there seems to be demand for those looking to enjoy the morning meal at someplace better than the corner diner.

From stylish West Hollywood or Beverly Hills breakfast spots perfect for a morning meeting, or a relaxed Eastside spot like Millie’s Cafe or Little Dom’s, or perhaps the hipster central that is SQIRL, here’s a helpful guide to the best weekday breakfast spots in L.A.

Restaurant Review: Officine Brera Serves Rich Italian to a Rich Arts District Crowd

If you took a straw poll among chefs on the most finicky dish to prepare in a restaurant kitchen, there’s a good chance that a classic Italian risotto would be on top. Achieving that perfect al dente texture requires babysitting and finesse, and even a small slip in timing means gummy rice, a scorched pan or what could be described as “rice soup.” Some restaurants par-cook their risotto in big batches and finish the dish to order with a flurry of butter and cheese, though even that trick is far from foolproof. Risotto may be a staple of fancy dining rooms everywhere, but few chefs can actually master it.

A Peek Inside The Deep End, the Wacky Cocktail Lounge Inside Honeycut

Plus a look at the cocktail menu

The Deep End, the half-a-week cocktail lounge at Honeycut that commenced back in March and helmed by Proprietors, LLC (The Normandie Club, Death & Co NYC), and 213 Hospitality, is finally ready to show off its bizarre and kind of awesome interior. Dubbed the “new escapism,” the lounge fuses a heavy dose of David Bowie and tiki, resulting in a postmodern pastiche of bright colors, futuristic lines, and of course, forward-thinking cocktails. But really, the place could just be a glorious 80s style homage.
