Jamie Oliver Exclusive ()
Jamie Oliver has been shooting his reality show, Food Revolution, in LA for the past several weeks. Now, the LA Unified School District has put a stop to all reality show productions in the district. Read more about it in the LA Times.
Smoke City with Jonathan Gold ()This week’s restaurant recommendation from the LA Weekly's Jonathan Gold is Smoke City Market, serving Texas barbecue in Sherman Oaks. Their barbecue is served without sauce – they have it, they don’t recommend using it. Jonathan likes the brisket mostly. It’s seasoned with salt, pepper and smoke. They have chicken, baby back ribs, beef ribs, sausage and the requisite sides, but the brisket is the recommended item to order.
