Our server Amy was fantastic. Restaurant was a little noisy last night, but overall a great time. I always enjoy coming to Taste and last night was no different. They seated my friend before I arrived, and I confirmed reservation, but perhaps they transferred us to his instead of acknowledging mine. Either way, I was present and not a no-show. More

Seafood | Manhattan Beach / Hermosa Beach, Beach Cities

FWD is one of my favorite lunch spots in the city. The hamachi app, the fried chicken sandwich, the salmon tartare are all favorites. I had the key lime pie again and it was so good and so beautiful. Note that the tables are very close together, so not the place for a private conversation. Very highly recommended. More

Discover Los Angeles

Think Los Angeles is a one-industry town? Think again. From the micro-Seoul of Koreatown to unexpected fusion cuisines (take Chinese-Mexican, for one) and strip malls that house destination restaurants, the city’s restaurant scene is notably experimental and diverse. Ask locals where to find the best taco truck (or lonchero) in the city, and you’ve struck a match. These mobile microenterprises are a part of the city's lifeblood. With L.A.’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic, Jonathan Gold, describing the city as “less of a melting pot—more of a glittering mosaic,” we’re seeing L.A.’s vast palate show up on the plate.
