Food news this week

Anyone wondering what happened to chef Tomi Harase, who owned foodie mecca Cafe Blanc in Beverly Hills? He's resurfaced at Katsu-ya in the Valley, and will be introducing more Cal-Japonaise dishes there soon. And now, a moment's silence for the first Cafe Blanc as well, which inhabitated an unlikely little building on Beverly Blvd. just west of Virgil. (from Chowhound)

California's better than Bass. Not exactly breaking news, but a nice beer article for this weather. (L.A. Times, free registration required)

I'm planning on hitting Mandaloun soon for some Lebanese delicacies and a hit off those fine-looking water pipes... (L.A. Alternative Press)
