Bike your way through the best Filipino food spots during Taste of Temple Street

Bike your way through the best Filipino food spots during Taste of Temple Street

Filipino food is on the up and up in Los Angeles thanks to a surge of innovative and high-quality dining spots like LASA, Ricebar and Sari Sari. But the regional cuisine is by no means new to L.A.

If you’re new to the scene or just want to experience it differently, Cyclists Inciting Change thru Live Exchange (or C.I.C.L.E.) is partnering with Metro to present Taste of Temple Street: Filipino Bites, a unique way of sampling different Filipino dishes in one high-energy biking session.

Instead of going to those previously mentioned trendsetters, the three-mile ride will take you through the classic eateries of Historic Filipinotown on Temple Street, some of which have been around for decades. Though the specific itinerary hasn’t been announced yet, it should be the perfect crash course on good, old-fashioned homestyle Pinoy cuisine.

The event is friendly to beginner riders as well as children, though the guidelines state that all participants under 18 must wear a helmet and be escorted by a parent or guardian. We insist that even those older than 18 should wear helmets just to be safe because we all know this city isn’t exactly the best when it comes to bike lanes.

Taste of Temple Street: Filipino Bites will take place on Thursday, August 24 from 6 to 8:30pm. It’s free to ride, but you must RSVP via Eventbrite.

Jane Q is now open with Californian-meets-Mediterranean fare in the heart of Hollywood

Jane Q is now open with Californian-meets-Mediterranean fare in the heart of Hollywood

Sitting pretty a block above Hollywood and Vine, Kimpton Hotel Group’s latest venture brings us a stylish new place to perch. Jane Q, situated in the Everly Hotel, opened at the end of last week offering a casual, countertop-seating experience near the Beachwood Canyon edge of Hollywood.

Helmed by Las Vegas familiar Bryan Podgorski as executive chef, with Georgia native Jason T. Hall as chef de cuisine, the restaurant and coffee bar is light and breezy with a focus on vegetables, wood-fired pizza and Mediterranean-inspired fare that occasionally dips into the American South. An all-day menu—served 11am to 10pm daily—presents crispy eggplant with tahini yogurt, lemon and garlic; avocado parfait with yogurt, marinated cucumbers and house-made focaccia; and a black truffle calzone.

The breakfast menu—6 to 11am—serves inspired house-cured salmon, in-house pastries, granola and other usual suspects, then veers into Southern territory with the Grits+Eggs—soft eggs with heirloom grits, Benton’s country ham and red-eye gravy—and the Savannah B.E.L.T. with its pickled green tomato, pimento cheese, bacon candy and fried egg. Of course it wouldn’t feel “California-inspired” if there weren’t a farmers’ market involved, and fortunately for the Everly, there’s one just a few blocks away.

“I have close relationships with local farmers who understand the thought and care that goes into creating each dish at Jane Q,” says Hall, who sources much of his produce from theHollywood Farmers’ Market. “We’re excited to work with them to serve fresh, interesting food that will put the restaurant on the map as a go-to destination for a truly wholesome and enjoyable dining experience.”

Though the hotel’s new Ever Bar—which opened just above Jane Q—offers a full cocktail program, the Everly’s restaurant won’t overlap in beverages. In fact, Jane Q will serve four cocktails unique to the space: the Vodka, So…Duh,withvodka, kale juice, lemon cordial and soda; the Negroni Sbagliato with vermouth, Campari and prosecco; the Sicilian Café with amaro, espresso and tonic; and Etna’s Delight with Fernet, lime cordial and Sicilian-orange soda.

In addition to the natural light from that wall of atrium windows, you’ll find white tile, marble tabletops and natural-wood accents—providing an ideal backdrop for pics of Podgorski and Hall’s so-Instagrammable food. (See also: this insane rainbow of a vegetable plateau.) All the better for those in Hollywood’s see-and-be-seen dining scene.

Jane Q is now open in Kimpton’s Everly Hotel, at 1800 Argyle Avenue, from 6am to 10pm daily.

Here’s how to spend a perfect day in Venice

Here’s how to spend a perfect day in Venice

There are many ways to explore Venice, but there’s only one perfect way to spend a day in the beachfront neighborhood. We’ve put together an itinerary for your perfect day in Venice.

Morning

Start your day on the up-and-coming Rose Avenue with a sweet pastry from Gjusta, the ever-popular bakery that’s made an art of folding fresh slices of fruit into sugar-glazed dough. Metro brings an expanded bike share system to Venice this summer, but in the meantime put those carbs to good use and rent a Breeze Bike to pedal along the beachfront path. Toward the southeastern edge of the beach, walk among the arching pedestrian bridges and charming houses along the Venice Canals.

Afternoon

Stroll along the upscale Abbot Kinney Boulevard, an area of Venice that’s equal parts high-end boutiques and beach-bum ambience. Stop by Tortoise General Store for a lovely selection of traditional Japanese crafts, Urbanic Paper Boutique for letterpress cards and striking gift wrap and Huset for Scandinavian-inspired decor. Brave the Venice Boardwalk and make a beeline for the small shaded patio at Poke-Poke, one of the first (and best) places to serve the raw Hawaiian seafood specialty in L.A.

Night

Watch the sunset with a drink in hand at Hotel Erwin’s High Rooftop Lounge, a primo patio overlooking the Pacific. Make your way inland for a down-home dinner at Baby Blues BBQ, where the sweetest servers insist you pile your plate high with ribs, corn bread, and mac and cheese. Unwind with a nightcap down the street at the Lincoln, a cozy, industrial patio bar with whimsical yet refined cocktails.

There’s a pop-up beer garden coming to Griffith Park this summer

There’s a pop-up beer garden coming to Griffith Park this summer

Griffith Park is pretty much perfect the way it is—save for traffic—but the addition of a pint-sized summertime beer garden sure doesn’t hurt.

The Griffith Park Beer Garden is popping up on the patio of the golf course adjacent Roosevelt Cafe this summer. The dive-y diner will pour out flights of four 6oz local beers on Saturdays paired with a Farmer John sausage, for the slightly-steep price of $20.

In addition, the garden will feature a DJ from 4 to 8pm, as well as the eatery’s traditional comfort food fare like pancakes and pizza.

To be clear, the leafy, umbrella-dotted patio already exists as part of the cafe. But the introduction of beer flights on Saturday is a welcome addition (and dubbing it the Griffith Park Beer Garden a savvy bit of marketing).

The eatery is within stumbling distance of the Greek Theatre, so expect the beer garden to be a popular spot before Saturday night shows this summer.

The Griffith Park Beer Garden kicks off the summer season a little early with a launch event this Saturday, May 13 at noon (a DJ will be spinning from 4:30 to 8:30pm). You’ll find it at 2650 North Vermont Avenue on Saturdays through October.
