Rustic Canyon Dinner Series
Ringing in its landmark 10th anniversary this December, Santa Monica’s favorite neighborhood haunt Rustic Canyon Wine Bar & Seasonal Kitchen is throwing a commemorative dinner series with award-winning chefs from near and far. For three nights only, husband-and-wife co-owners Zoe and Josh Nathan and executive chef Jeremy Fox will invite acclaimed culinary mavens like Oria Menashe of Bestia, Jessica Koslow of Sqirl, and Walter Manzke of Republique to take over the kitchen for a six-course feast of seasonal, gourmet perfection. With each night representing a different crop of chefs, the three-fold celebration will serve up meals to remember. On October 3, Fox welcomes chefs and former colleagues who collectively boast six Michelin stars; on November 7, Fox will share the stoves with local LA chefs; and on December 8, former Rustic Canyon chefs will step into their old stomping grounds to up a feast on the restaurant’s actual anniversary. Score tickets for $125 per person, and if you’re feeling fancy, add on a wine pairing ranging from $55-$95. (Your taste buds will thank you later).
Wine + Cheese Series
There are few great marriages than the one between wine and cheese. At Grand Central Market, two vendors are joining forces to celebrate this pairing, as Bar Moruno and DTLA Cheese partner up for three wine and cheese classes. Each class will focus on cheeses from a different animal—goat (Oct 25), cow (Nov 1) and sheep (Nov 15)—along with excellent wines from Bar Moruno. Snag your ticket here.
Louisiana Seafood Boil
Boneyard Bistro's quarterly seafood boil is back, offering a family style feast that includes Louisiana crawfish, venus clams, PEI black mussels, white shrimp, Opilio snow crab clusters, Alaskan king crab legs and Maine lobster tales. Accompanying the spread are hefty side dishes like slaw, corn, poatoes and sausage. Snag a reservation by calling 818-906-2743.
If you're a food lover in L.A., there are plenty of conventions, festivals and underground supper clubs to channel your inner kitchen geek. L.A. Cookie Con. Dessert Week. Smorgasburg. Wolvesmouth. But Bitten, a food conference founded in New York last year, is more than that. It's a place where chefs, food writers, flavorists and fans can all come together, exploring the space where food, technology, creativity and trends meet. And on October 28, it's coming to L.A. Held at the Gallery Theater of Barnsdall Art Park in Hollywood, the day-long festival features an all-star lineup of industry experts that will lead discussions on everything from cooking with cannabis to the power of a shared meal. The day begins at 9:30am with a catered breakfast from Plant Food + Wine, followed by 15 different sessions and a lunch break. Attendees will listen to Jonathan Gold talk about the evolution of food science in L.A., hear from Ben Simon on how ugly foods can save the planet, and discover how Nyesha Arrington transitioned from Bravo TV to Leona, her Venice restaurant. At $200, tickets aren't cheap, but we've got a 50 percent off code for you: TimeOut50. Use the code here and get ready for a day of geeking out with some of the biggest names in the biz.
The Craft of Beer
Kick off your Halloween celebrations with a craft beer tasting at Paper or Plastik Café. On Sunday, October 30, the café will be offering 10 two-ounce pours of California craft beer, along with 10% off dinner in the eatery afterwards. Purchase your tickets here or snag them at the door.
