Food News: Bargains and Tributes at the Times
Today's LA Times online has a great foodie feature called 20 Delicious Deals that lists a variety of spots around town where you can do some good eating for great prices. Unlike the earlier Los Angeles mag piece on 25 under $25, the Times didn't set a price cap, or aim to have full meals at all their spots, but instead selected outstanding single menu items, like a Pain au chocolat at Pacific Palisades' À la Tarte for $2.75 or an asada taco in Studio City at Tortas Mexico for the bargain price of $2.10. They also have some higher end choices and complete meals, of which we've spied a couple spots we'd like to try, like the $10.50 Sashimi lunch special at Sushi Gen, or the Sunday night three course supper at the elegant and popular Lucques, which runs $35 per person. Delicious, indeed!
