Notes from yesterday's Taste of Los Feliz, which benefits Hope-Net, the charitable org that runs a network of food distribution pantries around the Hollywood, Los Feliz and Wilshire areas...
Little Dom's was there with some yummy arancini (pictured at left) bursting with mushrooms and cheese in a crispy rice coating...They hope to open the restaurant/deli in the former Belle Epoque space on Hillhurst in November.
Chi Dynasty was serving up orange chicken along with change of address cards...as we reported several months ago, they're moving to 1813 Hillhurst Ave. near Ye Rustic Inn.
The new owner of Figaro Bistro greeted us with new menus -- he says Figaro has a new chef, a new menu and "everything is new" -- meaning a return to French cafe classics like moules frites ($18), steak tartare ($13) and poulet roti ($23). The mussels with pesto on toast were one of my favorite dishes along with Aroma's tortellini and Delilah Bakery's whiskey bread pudding.
