We were disappointed to learn that Silverlake restaurateur Reggie will not be the next Food Network Star. Instead, it's Guy Fieri, the NoCal Gen X-er with bleached hair, shorts and a signature dish called Rhode Island Calamari, which does look delicious.

After hearing that he hadn't won, Reggie stood with his arm around his mom (aw). We're sad that he came in second, but the good news is that we'll be able to partake of Reggie's cooking right here in town. His restaurant is the Comfort Cafe, which has become a haven for laptop-toting, headphone-wearing screenwriters, bodybuilders (coming from the gym next door) — and enthusiastic foodie fans.
