The weather’s getting warmer, and you and your roommate just spent the last few nights watching every American Juggalo clip you could find. That means… you could probably use something to do this weekend. If so, you’ve come to the right place. From secret prix-fixes to smash burgers in Virgil Village, here are 5 Exciting Things To Do & Eat in LA Between April 29th and May 3rd.
Night + Market WeHo
Good news for anyone celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or your boyfriend’s dog turning seven (congrats, Gabby) - Night + Market’s West Hollywood location has reopened for dine-in services. They’ve been closed for the past 13 months, so if you’ve missed their excellent Thai food (and want to eat it on one of the best patios in town), head to their website to make a reservation.
Virgil Village’s natural wine bar, Melody, will be hosting a new burger pop-up this weekend. From Sunday, May 2nd to Monday, May 3rd, Radburg will be setting up shop in Melody’s cozy converted bungalow and serving a potent mix of smash burgers topped with koji onions, chips and dip laced with pork floss and meiji tofu, as well as chocolate mousse pies from fellow pop-up, Chainsaw. Limited outdoor seating available, walk-ups only.
If you’re looking for a slightly more upscale experience than your usual dinner routine, check out Chef Laurent Quenioux’s “Underground Secret Supper Club” this weekend. The six-course prix-fixe meal (which is hosted at an undisclosed location in Corona) will include French, highly-seasonal courses like smoked haddock, a spring vegetable tart, and soft shell crab in fermented chili paste. Wine pairings, as well as a roaming cheese cart(!), will also be available. Click here to make a reservation.
While that one time you made shakshuka by yourself was impressive, if you’ve ever wanted a restaurant-quality meal cooked in your own home, Kali is here to make that dream possible. The excellent Hollywood restaurant is now offering beef tartare, bass crudo, and an excellent almond panna cotta we’ve eaten three helpings of for catering, private parties, and at-home packages. Head to their website for all the latest details.
The folks at Shiku just dropped a new seafood gan jjajang sauce. It’s available to buy for walk-in/pick-up orders only, and is made up of shrimp, squid, scallops, and mussels. Basically, it’s perfect for reheating and serving over noodles, rice cakes, or just pouring straight into your mouth.
