EatingLA didn't do too much food-related stuff this weekend...mostly beer and photography exhibits instead. But on the way to Johnny's during the NELA art walk, we noticed the sign for Cafe de Leche, a new cafe coming to York Ave. FoodGPS has more info on the Latin-influenced coffee spot which will offer single-origin coffees and tasting classes.
Also, Billyboy emailed a while ago that Caribbean Dreams is opening on York and Hazelwood. The sign reads "5 - Star Chef Fausto -- Texas BBQ -- Caribbean Delights."
Also, finally got to the Little Cave. The music selection was about a million times better than Johnny's, and Matt enjoyed the large smoking patio. The on tap beer selection would have seemed amazing a few years ago, but now it seems standard to have half a dozen craft beers on tap, including Firestone and Stone IPA. The summer happy hour from 8:30 to 10:30 on Friday and Saturday is an excellent idea, since I'm kind of an early bird. Hard to beat those $3 import drafts! Also, don't miss the lady in front selling fat grilled hot dogs topped with savory sauteed onions, mayo and ketchup for $2.50.
