3 Ways To Eat Your Way Through The Weekend
The weekend is so close you can practically taste it. Here are the edible events going on in the next few days to keep you occupied—and sated, for that matter.
Pre-Tarantino Dinner At The Hudson: If you're a fan of Tarantino flicks or musical theater in general, For The Record: Tarantino is a must-see. The show has grown since first starting at the Rockwell, and is now being performed at the new DBA space, where actors fully integrate into the audience while singing tunes some of the cult director's scores. The cocktails are great too, our favorite of which was the mezcal paloma with smoked sea salt. If you're after a pre-theater meal, The Hudson is whipping up a special three course themed menu including panko blue crab cakes and steak frites for $40 per person every Thursday - Sunday, the same days that the show is performed. Seatings available from 5-6:30 p.m. You can find out more info and purchase tickets here.
Mother's Day Eats: Please please please don't forget that Sunday is Mother's Day. Be sure to treat yours to something special, wether it be a wonderful hike and a picnic at one of the fabulous parks in L.A., or brunch at one of the many restaurants that'll be doing special service for the occasion. There are plenty of places feting mom this weekend, which you can check out here.
Brunch Launches at Belcampo: The Grand Central Market has seen some really wonderful openings within the past year, one of the latest of which is Belcampo. The Northern California butcher raises and slaughters their own meat, making for a full-circle humane operation. They are currently working on opening a space in Santa Monica, and to gear up for it are serving brunch this Saturday at their DTLA location. Items include a Paleo Breakfast of Sweet Potato-Apple Cake, Bacon, Fried Egg & Greens ($11), Smoked Tongue & Eggs Smokey Sambal, Aioli, Scrambled Eggs & Greens ($12), and a Scrapple Fried Egg, Pepper Cabbage Slaw & Pear Compote ($11). For now the brunch is booze-free, but they're currently applying for their liquor license, whereupon they'll start serving micheladas and mimosas. You can find out more info here.
