Summer food events are a dime a dozen, but Angeleno Magazine manages to present a consistently solid line-up year after year at their steady Live and Dine LA event held at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows. This year, there was no award presentation, leaving a core group of favorites to sample their eats in the courtyard surrounding the gorgeous, 130-some-year-old, 80-foot tall Moreton Bay Fig Tree.
Attendees sipped Brugal Summer Hounds, Pavan Sangria Cocktails, Macallan 12 Fine Oak, iced Handsome Coffee brew, Solsticio Wines, 123 Organic Tequila margaritas and more as they savored dishes from some of the most popular restaurants in the city:
With the popularity of burgers in this city still going strong, Comme Ã‡a’s David Myers has decided to capitalize on his burger’s longtime reputation as being one of the best burgers in LA (or more specifically, The Best Brasserie Burger in LA). Tomorrow, the Melrose Avenue restaurant will start a Tuesday Burger Night weekly and expand theirÂ bun and patty combos beyond the classic.
Black and Blue Burger – $18 Angus beef, bleu cheese, red onion, bacon, French fries, garlic aioli
Lamb Merguez Burger – $16 Lamb sausage, roasted peppers and caramelized onions, arugula on ciabatta bun, French fries, harissa aioli
Breakfast Burger – $14 House made pork sausage, egg sunny side up, white gravy, on an English muffin, lyonnaise potato
CCVB – $14 (Comme Ca Veggie Burger) Cashew & pine nuts, garbanzo bean, ajuwan-tomato jam on a tofu bun, baby kale and spinach salad
And since these burgers call for a better pairing than a fountain coke, Comme Ã‡a will be offering a list of “Cellar Finds,â€ or rare wines, at special values to wash your special burger down.
You know where to be tomorrow night (or the Tuesday night after that, and after that). Not a bad place to go after a couple cocktails at The Roger Room (you’ll want to get to The Room earlier than later)!
Dinner: 5:30 PM â€“ 11 PM
