While I was in Tampa, Florida, one of my lunches took me to Datz restaurant. When I heard the description, I wanted to try their famous meatloaf: individually-sized, housemade meatloaf stuffed with bacon-jalapeno mac n’cheese and served with garlic mashed potatoes and peas.

 
I was saddened to discover that the popular dish was a dinner item, so there was no way for me to try it. The best I could do to get a taste was to have chef Jason Dame show me the uncooked dish. Next time I go to Datz, it will be for dinner!

 
Discover the restaurant yourself through my exclusive video interview with the owners, Suzanne and Roger Perry.

Looking for great burgers in Los Angeles? Head to Short Order at the Farmers Market. Read my just-published review of the restaurant to learn what makes them so good, and see pictures in the Short Order photo gallery.

I have to be honest: Towne Food & Drink restaurant owner Armen Shirvanian came up with the idea for this picture, not me. I think it was a good idea, as well as his restaurant. When I first saw it, I wondered why chef Ryan Morrison’s teeth were green. If you look closer, you will see that he is holding a house-made macaron from pastry chef Tamara Davis.

 

To see more of the new restaurant, located in the Watermarke Tower in downtown Los Angeles, visit the Towne Food & Drink photo gallery.

By the end of the year, I will be able to taste chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s cuisine at his new restaurant at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, and even stay at his first boutique hotel: Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace. I can even continue my meal there, as the hotel will offer 24-hour in-room dining service by chef Nobu.

Watch my exclusive video interview with chef Nobu.

No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you: I am in a bathtub surrounded by hanging honey bears! Where could I possibly be? At Industriel restaurant in downtown Los Angeles.

 
Chef Joseph Antonishek has done a great culinary job in this funky place. The restaurant has earned a spot on GAYOT.com’s list of Top 10 New & Notable Los Angeles Restaurants as well as the newly created Top 10 Happy Hour round-up.

 
View a photo gallery of the décor and the dishes I enjoyed there last week.
