HANDS DOWN THE BEST FOOD LOVER’S GUIDE IN TOWN
➢ Some guides are unreliable popularity contests. EAT: LA is a carefully curated roster of 1,300 of L.A.’s best resources for food lovers, from bistros to brewpubs, food trucks to farmers’ markets.
➢ Some are a decade out of date. EAT: LA is updated annually as a book, and much more frequently as a site and app.
➢ Some focus on the swank and expensive. EAT: LA finds high quality at every price.
➢ Some are swayed by publicists and free meals. EAT LA is produced with journalistic ethics.
And now the city has a new edition for 2012, thoroughly updated and rich with new discoveries. Plus it has a new section called Favorites, which showcases short lists of the authors’ personal favorite destinations, expanded food-truck coverage, lots of new listings, and a dazzling new cover. And despite being the biggest edition yet, it’s more compact and more bag- and car-friendly than ever.
EAT LA’s team of expert journalists shares the Why, What and Who on their favorite restaurants, caterers, ethnic markets, gourmet-to-go, breakfast cafes, taco trucks, kitchen supply, wine shops, bakeries, food festivals, ramen houses, butchers, coffeehouses, tea parlors, gelaterias, pubs, chocolatiers and much more. They cover all of L.A. County, from Long Beach to La Cañada.

Eat LA: The E-book & The Site
Yes, we’re digital! Look for the e-book on all platforms: iBooks, Kindle, Nook and more; it’s fully linked and searchable, so you can find whatever you’re craving. And the companion web site, Eat-LA.com, boasts a searchable database of the listings, as well as news, happenings and a collection of the city’s best food blogs.
It’s All About the Local, the Sustainable & the Essential
EAT: Los Angeles eschews the corporate chains and seeks the one-of-a-kind places that reflect their communities and the passion of their owners. It also flags places that are good for families, vegetarians and vegans, party-throwers, romance-seekers and night owls, and it gives a shout-out to the sustainable. Finally, it showcases the Essentially L.A. places that shouldn’t be missed.
“We would follow this guide into hell.” —Long Beach Press-Telegram
