Chew On This: Short Order Opening Date, Fatty's Is Back, Molonay Tubilderborst, Where LA Chefs Eat, & More
What's going on lately in the L.A food scene? Chew on this:
Short Order Sets Opening Date
At long last, Short Order, the burger restaurant from Nancy Silverton and the late Amy Pressman, has set an opening date: November 18 at 5 p.m. Short Order broke ground at the Original Farmers' Market in June.
Filipino Food & Cocktail Event
Pleasure Palate, Six Taste and Nola's have teamed up to put on a Filipino Food and Cocktail Event on November 20. They promise to have a lot of fun flavors. All four of our cocktails will include calamansi as an ingredient. Abby from Pleasure Palate explains calamansi is "similar to a kumquat and tastes both sweet and sour. It's not a citrus you normally see in cocktails, but for this event, you will be able to experience it in four different ones." Plus: a Lechon (roast pig) carving station. Tickets are $50 and available online.
Pizza Being Served (Again!) at Ammo
Ammo has announced they are putting artisan pizzas back on their menu after a prolonged absence. "The pizzas didn't really fit on the menu that we had previously, but now that we're shifting our focus and changing things up again, it made sense to bring them back," says Benny Bohm, General Manager (and Partner) of Ammo. There will be four pizzas on the menu: a classic mozzarella, tomato and basil pizza; prosciutto and arugula; rapini pizza, featuring pancetta, fontina and parmigiano reggiano cheese, and marinated baby artichokes and fontina cheese, with red onion, cherry tomatoes and mint.
New Bites at Bouchon's Bistro, Bar and Bakery
Bouchon in Beverly Hills has a few newsworthy bites. They are now serving Gluten-Free Bouchons in the Bakery. They've also announced Bar Bouchon and Bouchon Bistro "Out of Office Specials" available from 5:30 to 6:30; Le Burger Bouchon (with fries) and a glass of Brouwerij West Beer is $17.50 at Bar Bouchon, while upstairs at the Bistro a two-course dinner (choose from soup or salad, AND chicken, fish, steak, or Vegetable Risotto) plus a glass of Bouchon's vin de Carafe is $39.50.
Brunch at Momed
Momed in Beverly Hills has debuted their "Sparkling Brunch" prix fixe service on Saturdays and Sundays. The menu features a Brunch Selection + Fresh Orange Juice + Intelligentsia Coffee for $14.50. 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Pocket Restaurant Molonay Tubilderborst
Okay, yeah: Say what? Molonay Tubilderborst is a "pocket restaurant" appearing for three nights each week inside Senor Fish in Little Tokyo. They explain: "Unlike a pop-up it is not time limited; it will run indefinitely." In the kitchen is Chef Nicholas Coe (we got to know him at Black Cat Bakery), who says he "intends it to be an experimental approach to fine dining for a changed world." The menu will be based on what is in season and available through local growers and suppliers committed to local and artisanal ingredients. Reservations are available only by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and are very limited since the space only seats 32. And, yes, Senor Fish will be open during Molonay Tubilderborst dinners.What Do L.A. Chefs Eat?
If that question intrigues you, the answer will be available via social travel site Gogobot, who are rolling out exclusive restaurant guides and tips from Iron Chef veterans, Top Chef finalists and James Beard Award winners next week. Some of the local talent: David Myers, Marcel Vigneron, Sacha Lyon, and Stefan Ricther.
