Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Much more than just a traditional restaurant guide, this book offers information about bakeries, wine shops, markets, caterers, festivals, cooking classes, and even taco trucks in order to assist the L.A. resident or savvy visitor in the pursuit of the "gustatorily rewarding life." Entries include answers to why a place is recommended, what one can expect to find, and also who the typical customer is, so that the user will know if he will be dining with hipsters, movie stars, and/or "Chihuahuas in Birkin bags." Places designated as "Essentially L.A.," based on food or history, are especially recommended. The more detailed sections on good food neighborhoods are useful for planning day outings. Compact, attractively designed, and sturdily bound to withstand repeated use, the book has only one minor drawback: the lack of an index by type of food. Clearly intended mostly for Angelenos or those familiar with the area, this guide is essential for L.A.-area libraries; otherwise recommended for travel collections where there is interest.
