L.A. Times’ The Taste event last weekend was a nice, big improvement from the previous year, as we witnessed at Sunday night’s “Dinner & Drinks” event, featuring such stars in our skies as Bricia Lopez of Guelaguetza, Greg Daniels of Haven Gastropub, and Huckleberry’s Zoe Nathan and Josh Loeb. Oh, then there were actual famous people from T.V. and stuff, like Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson with his dude, Kelly Rowland, and Tatyana “Ashley Banks” Ali, all of who were spied taking in the tastings. In other celeb-spotting news, Eva Longoria announced her designs for a Vegas steakhouse for ladies (as if anyone but shrieking bachelorettes were crowding Sin City’s Beso anyway), Justin Birber brought a crew to eat seafood at King’s, and Maya Rudolph divulged her love of chocolate-covered cheese in Studio City. For all this, and so much more, see this week’s celebrity settings, below.
