This and that...Jan. 13

It looks like the Little Door is opening a delicatessen/cafe...they're advertising for artisanal pastry chefs and such on Craig's List. I've never eaten there, but I'm always game for new lunch spots near the office.

Speaking of new lunch spots, the cafe at Surfas gourmet and cookware store in Culver City has opened and it sounds like a real winner, with imaginative sandwiches, homemade baked goods and lots of other items. It's open every day until 6:30. Report coming soon, along with a shopping bag of French lentils, chili flavored chocolate, etc., no doubt.

Also opening soon is the City Bakery in Brentwood...apparently those who know the original location in New York think this place is pretty great. Hmm...that pretzel croissant on the website does look pretty tasty.

I had no idea that L.A. city councilman Eric Garcetti has his own dining show, Flavors of Los Angeles, on channel 35 until I read about it on Franklin Avenue...but that's probably because since I have Dish network, I don't get channel 35.

And lastly, here's a cool link I came across while Googling something or other: Gastronomica's list of Food on Film, describing great movie moments involving food. It's probably not very complete, but you gotta love a list that includes cannibal movies and "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" with chestnuts like "Babette's Feast."
