Culinary Tidbits . . . TV star Mario Batali and restaurateur & winemaker Joe Bastianich have plans to open a Los Angeles branch of Eatly, their huge Italian food mega-store, which opened in New York last year. A location could possibly be around the fringes of the Fairfax district. With the exception of good neighborhood farmers markets LA still lacks interesting gourmet markets and has so far nothing to offer on this scale and scope.
Note: I apologize for the low volume of posts. They have been and will be severely curtailed from April 10 – mid to end of May due to my repair & remodel of my rental property in Los Angeles, where my time to write is limited and internet connection in this location is very spotty at best.
