The NY Times travel section eats around L.A.'s "nameless neighborhood," that is, the section of the city that encompasses everything from Mozza to Comme Ca. It's a kind of L.A.-for-beginners article that takes care to explain in the lead that not all restaurants in L.A. are just for movie stars, and then runs down the above places plus Lucques, BLD and Hatfield's. Are they right? Is there no name for this Fairfax District/mid-city/Larchmont-adjacent hotbed of solid, if pricey restaurants?
And in the LA Times, an obit for Scharffen Berger Chocolate co-founder Robert Steinberg and of course for Newman's spaghetti sauce and popcorn founder (oh, and actor) Paul Newman.
