Bar Covell opens in Los Feliz, Mark Stambler's bread on Off-ramp, Xoia & Big Mista in the L.A. Times

beer selection, from Covell's Facebook page
Bar Covell opened Friday on Hollywood Blvd., and it's more than just a wine bar...Dustin Lancaster, formerly of Cafe Stella, and Matt Kaner, formerly of Silver Lake Wine, have laid in some nice draft beer selections, too. Covell looks to be a great addition to the neighborhood, which now has plenty of wine bars to choose from, and more good beer than I ever thought would be available east of Santa Monica.

Xoia gets a nicely-wrought description from localista Jessica Gelt in this Early Bird piece in the L.A. Times, capturing the Echo Park vibe of Origami records, Tacos Arizas and other neighborhood touchstones.  If you've already read the print version, check out the online one for the photo of an adorable little girl slurping noodles.

I was hoping to report on Mark Stambler's award-winning French bread, but Miles beat me to it on this piece for KPCC's Off-ramp. The Silver Lake resident's bread is being sold on weekends at the Cheese Shop of Silver Lake.

And this was a few days ago, but if you missed the food section last week, check out this wonderful article on the Atwater Farmer's Market's Big Mista himself, in honor of 4th of July barbecues.
