Storytelling, mysteries, puzzles, art and magic. If this intrigues you, then you will understand why 49 Boxes at the Black Rabbit Rose in Hollywood is the Please The Palate pick of the week. 49 Boxes is running from April 14 through May 26 in Los Angeles and I had the privilege to attend a media preview for a fully magical evening. Taking up residence in Black Rabbit Rose in Hollywood, we entered the vintage-adorned bar. Large tables of eight filled the room and on each table were a number of wooden boxes of all shapes and sizes. At the front of the room is a display of artifacts, as well as a large box with 19 padlocks. We took our seats at the tables, forming groups that we would be working with to solve the mysteries.
One thing that there is no shortage of in Los Angeles are sushi and ramen restaurants. While certain areas are more densely filled with sushi and ramen restaurants, they can be found in nearly every neighborhood. And on top of that, it is not a challenge to find good quality sushi and ramen. When I was invited to check out Totoyama Sushi & Ramen on Hollywood Blvd, I wasn't sure what to expect. After all, Hollywood Blvd is not typically a place to come to eat unless you are going to the Pantages or are looking for somewhere where the scene is more important than the food. But, I was in for a great surprise - Totoyama Sushi & Ramen is a gem in the center of Hollywood. This gem is a rather unassuming restaurant. It is tucked inside the complex that is home to Greenleaf Gourmet Shop, Pressed Juicery, Shake Shack, Dunkin Donuts and Soul Cycle. The space is simple and comfortable. There is a small dining area in the front, seating around the sushi bar which takes up the largest space in the restaurant, and a small dining area behind the sushi bar.
Hollywood has a new drinking (and eating) destination. Bar Joe, inside Spoonfed, will satisfy you morning, noon and night. That is right, Bar Joe is an all-day drinking destination. Bar Joe is located inside Spoonfed in the heart of the Hollywood Media District. Spoonfed is a large, bright open space that combines counter service with comfortable seating and lots of natural light. Tucked inside Spoonfed is Bar Joe. Bar Joe offers table service in its dining room and patio. The entire Spoonfed menu is available in Bar Joe and Bar Joe provides all of the drinks for both spaces. The only thing you have to decide is if you want table service or self-service.
