Westfield Santa Anita Adds Sichuan Kungfu Fish to Its Restaurant Collection | L.A. Weekly
For those who remember pre–civil rights–era Los Angeles, it's ironic that communities that once did not allow Chinese people to reside within their borders now sport a significant Chinese-American population: San Marino, South Pasadena and Rancho Palos Verdes, for example. But the greatest irony is that of Arcadia, which once vehemently excluded Chinese-American residents but now has become the face of the globally known San Gabriel Valley Chinese-American community. A

America's Best New Restaurants 2017 | Bon Appetit
Food should be inspiring. Food should be innovative. And yes, food should be delicious. But more than ever this year, we decided food should be fun. Thanks to these ten fine establishments, this year was hands down the best time we’ve ever had while choosing the country’s best new restaurants. On our cross-country travels, we met the first- and second-generation immigrants giving faraway cuisines an all-American twist; the chef reviving a members-only Italian social club in Philadelphia; and the badass New Orleans crew who made the humble fried-bologna sandwich king. So here’s to the reinventors, the romantics, the renegades—and all the outrageously great food they’re making this year. Welcome to Bon Appétit’s best new restaurants in America 2017!

Generation Next - Bon Appetit
If you want to know who’s running the buzziest, most boundary-pushing restaurants in the nation, look no further than the children of immigrants.

Here, in their own words, is how they’re creating the most dynamic food scene in the world.

A Slice of Heaven in Pittsburgh
Somehow, over the past few years, Neapolitan pizza — gooey, thin, soft-crusted, mozzarella-and-tomato-only — has become the ideal. In a way it’s understandable; pizza had strayed so far from its roots that the classical model was bound to come back.

The 13 Hottest New Restaurants in Pittsburgh Right Now
Today, Eater returns to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to focus on the city's newest restaurants earning serious buzz. As like last time around, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette dining critic Melissa McCart has kindly offered her picks for the hottest dining and drinking establishments her city has to offer, and she notes that Pittsburgh's on an upswing of sorts. "While hotel restaurants have made the biggest splash this season, homegrown restaurants continue to open at a fast clip," McCart says, "with more to come." (Eater's Bill Addison agrees, asking earlier this year if Pittsburgh is indeed "the country's next destination food town.")

David R. Chan can't use chopsticks. "I can't hold them properly," Chan says. "It hasn't really been a problem, though. Chinese restaurants usually have forks available." He's checked in 6,090 Chinese restaurants, to be exact -- a number that just keeps on growing.

How L.A. Became A Powerhouse for Chinese Food
When it comes to Chinese food, the conversation in urban centers of America has long moved past chow mein and into more nuanced arguments about variations of xiaolongbao. But even with cooking shows from icons Martin Yan and Ming Tsai—not to mention Julia Child’s confession that she’d “be perfectly happy with only Chinese food”—awareness didn’t reach its smoking point until the 2000s.

Interview: Alvin Cailan (Eggslut, Ramen Champ, The Proper)
Alvin Cailan is an L.A. native who got a Business Management degree from California State University Fullerton and worked in construction before food took over his life. He attended Oregon Culinary Institute and worked for top Portland restaurants like Castagna and Ten 01. Cailan staged down the California coast in restaurants like Bouchon and Hatfield’s before signing on at M.B. Post. From there, he opened Eggslut with cousin Jeff Vales, starting with a truck before landing a counter at Grand Central Market. To start 2015, Cailan and Michael Sudjati teamed on Ramen Champ in Chinatown’s Far East Plaza, and they’re working to open The Proper beneath Chinatown’s Gold Line stop. I recently met with Cailan at Ramen Champ, where he shared unique insights.

Without further ado, here are 15 places to find chicken wings in Los Angeles.

L.A.’s Wildest Cafeteria Served Utopian Fantasy With a Side of Enchiladas
On a decrepit block of Broadway in downtown Los Angeles, hidden behind a dilapidated, aging façade, lies the ghost of a palatial dining hall filled with towering redwoods and a gurgling stream. Known as Clifton’s Brookdale Cafeteria, this terraced wonderland recalls a different time, when cafeterias were classy and downtown living was tops. Against all odds, the Brookdale outlasted attacks from notorious L.A. mobsters and decades of neighborhood decline. Over the last few years, Clifton’s has been closed while staging its comeback, finally being restored to its original Depression-era grandeur.
