According to the LA Times, doughnuts have had an haute cuisine makeover in Beverly Hills. Were they spelled "donuts" before? The article also claims that cupcakes are all the rage these days here in the Southland. Where? Has anyone graced any of these supposed cupcake eateries?

More Chinese Food

I was taken to lunch at The New Moon at 107 W. 9th Street downtown (no not Greenwich Village...downtown Los Angeles), and it was quite good! The decor was clean and hip, the food ranging from not bad to excellent, the prices easy. I especially recommend the eggplant dish. Not a huge eggplant fan, but was trying to make nice with the person treating me who insisted on the dish's excellence, and dang if she wasn't right. Smooth, great flavor, a big hit. The chow fun wasn't as good as Mao's (see previous post), but the chicken and shrimp dishes were slam dunks. And the service was friendly...and fast.

There is another location in Montrose at 2138 Verdugo Blvd.
