Man about town Charles Runnette sums up Santa Monica's newest dining prospects in Sunday's New York Times travel magazine, although it's hard to find under the title California Kitchens, which I thought was a remodeling feature.
Lots of good stuff in the LA Times health section:
--Mushrooms could be a great source of vitamin D
-- New plates will tell you how much you're actually supposed to be eating
-- Coconut macaroons can help chronic diarrhrea -- who knew?
-- But the Q & A on how much seafood can you eat each week and avoid mercury poisoning is disappointing, because it doesn't address Angelenos' most burning question: just tell me exactly how many spicy tuna rolls and pieces of fatty toro I can eat each week and be done with it already!
And, via LA Biz Observed, Fresh & Easy is holding off on opening any new stores to smooth out wrinkles in their operations -- or perhaps to figure out whether people really wanted that kind of store in the first place.
