Kaliboration dinner at MIchael's Santa Monica
Kali and Michael's are teaming up for a powerhouse dinner on February 20, featuring the talent of chef Miles Thompson from Michael's Santa Monica and chef Kevin Meehan from Kali. Focusing on California cuisine, the four-course dinner will include dishes from both restaurants, like Thomspon's dungeness crab chawanmushi and Meehan's black barley risotto. Dinner is $70 per person, while optional wine pairings and a specialty cocktail are extra.
Rose Cafe x Roberta's Collaboration Dinner
Brooklyn mainstay Roberta's is joining culinary forces with Venice hot spot Rose Cafe for a one-night-only collaborative dinner that will have your taste buds buzzing. The team behind the hole-in-the-wall pizza joint will, of course, be serving up signature pies—from the Bee Sting Pizza with tomato, basil, chili oil, mozzarella, sopressata, and honey to the Speckenwolf Pizza topped with oregano, mozzarella, crimini mushroom, speck and red onion. Rose Cafe's beloved cacio e pepe pasta will make an appearance, but don't expect the regular menu to be on offer. Think signature highlights from both eateries and a slue of surprise collaborative dishes worth venturing.
LA Magazine Whiskey Festival
Los Angeles Magazine is bringing back its annual Whiskey Festival for a second year. Celebrate the beloved spirit at the La Brea Tar Pits with master distillers, fine whiskey varietals, a curated food menu and live music.
AR Cucina Sicilian Dinner with Firriato Wines
Thanks to Culver City's rustic Italian restaurant AR Cucina and the oenophiles at Firriato Wines, Angelenos can transport their taste buds to the region of Sicily at the eatery's special Sicilian Dinner on Wednesday, February 22nd. The evening kicks off with a welcome reception where guests can whet their appetite with hors d'oeuvres like the eggplant caponata on a crispy crostini and a glass of vino. Immediately following, chef Akasha Richmond will serve up a five-course meal (read: Sicilian stuffed beef with Romanesco cauliflower, pasta with almond pesto trapanese, and the Cassata al Forno, a pie pastry iconic of the region with ricotta and dark chocolate—to name a few), alongside pairings of Firriato's finest, from the Le Sabbie dell'Etna, Etna Rosso, 2013 to the Santagostino Rosso, 2011. Reserve a table for $75 per person, including wine pairings. Buon appetito!
Tres by José Andrés Oscar Viewing Party
Leave it to swanky Beverly Hills staple Tres by José Andrés to roll out the red carpet for the 89th Annual Academy Awards. On February 26th (aka L.A.'s unofficial holiday, Oscar Sunday), head to the upscale, Spanish-style restaurant for a taste of awards season, complete with a red carpet arrival and photo op, specialty cocktails and bites, a welcome glass of Cava and truffle popcorn, and a raffle ticket to win a stay at the SLS Beverly Hills. Toast this year's nominees with signature dishes like the Patatas Bravas, chicken and béchamel fritters and homemade pappardelle pasta with parmesan foam.
