Looking for a go-to Wine Wednesday option? Downtown's Everson Royce Bar offers a killer deal every Wednesday off the week: $25 for a flight of three wines and one of chef Matt Molina's culinary creations. Each week brings something new so you'll never get bored—though, let's face it, you'll probably get drunk. Cheers!
World-famous pastry chef Dominique Ansel is celebrating one year in L.A. with what else but a brunch party, but it's so much more than that: Every Saturday and Sunday in November, Ansel is turning his full-service restaurant at the Grove into "DHOP," Dominique's House of Pancakes. The usual à la carte, dim sum-style brunch menu will switch to gourmet pancake-y options in that same format, where servers will come by your table to offer Dutch baby pancakes with yuzu curd; crêpes Suzette with orange supremes and a Grand Marnier brown sugar butter sauce; potato latkes with apple sauce and crème fraîche; and matcha soufflé pancakes with honey butter, among others. There'll even be house-cured lox and pastrami hash, for those who prefer things a little more savory.
If you want to lend a hand in helping fight California’s devastating wildfires, we suggest using your mouth. On Mondays into December, Hail Mary Pizza in Atwater Village is hosting a community dinner, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Wildfire Relief Fund. Between 5 and 9pm, Hail Mary will be putting out platters of salads, roast vegetables, paella and more, at a cost of $25 per person—though larger donations are of course accepted. Donations fund both short- and long-term support for those who’ve lost their housing and/or belongings, by rebuilding homes, providing respiratory equipment, coordinating mental-health and financial services, assisting with basic needs and follow-up medical care, sourcing and providing supplies and more. What’s more, the Wildfire Relief Fund helps those throughout California, providing aid for survivors of our nearby Woolsey Fire and beyond.
