We recently hit the sack with Pat Saperstein, Colleen Dunn-Bates, Linda Burum, and several of their foodie friends that together form the editorial super group behind Eat: Los Angeles 2010. This guide to L.A.’s restaurants, markets, bars, and trucks isn’t necessarily the new bible for eaters looking for goat nard pie in Willowbrook, but certainly scores for its comprehensive overview of our sprawling megalopolis’ eateries. The book, due to be released in early December, is nicely organized to detail L.A.’s essential places; the ones you can’t miss with short, accurate reflections on why not. There are still plenty of finds here for the dude who has Counter Intelligence tattooed on his frontal lobe, as well as a full introduction to L.A.’s dining scene and neighborhoods for newbies.
In addition to quick, accurate restaurant summaries, Eat Los Angeles succeeds with its breakdowns of great food streets and the inclusion of quality quick food, both from new trucks and local classics like Astro Burger and El Parian. Restaurants that deliver, bars, markets, and food events are also included, making this a must-have for anyone seeking to know L.A. food culture or penetrate it deeper. The book can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
