  • Daw Yee: Mission of Burma
    L.A. has a very small pool of Burmese restaurants; among them, Daw Yee does not boast the most extensive menu. Nonetheless, Daw Yee, in Monterey Park, is fascinating for one big reason — namely, that it gives L.A. something unusual: a Burmese restaurant that caters to younger diners.

  • Salons Introduce Newbies to Art

    Touring the art collection of Cliff and Mandy Einstein, a longtime ad man and a former tennis pro, is a crash course in world-class collecting. You learn that if you want a collection that impresses contemporary art's biggest patrons (the Rubells from Miami, Dakis Joannou from Athens), you have to...
  • Daw Yee Review: Burmese Food Gets Hip

    Visual allure often isn't a virtue we value when chasing obscure flavors in L.A.'s international neighborhoods. In fact, adventurous diners tend to appreciate the opposite: The grungier the location, the more accomplished we feel for having sought it out. Looks be damned — let the fireworks happen on the flavor...
  • Skid Row and Off-Leash Dogs: Readers Respond

    On the Skids With cool, young people flocking to downtown L.A., what happens to Skid Row and its denizens? Hillel Aron's July 25 cover story found few easy answers ("Barbarians at the Gate"). Shahdaroba hates how things are changing. "Back in the day in the 1960s, the homeless would look...
  • James Brown Killed Dumb Biopics: Why the Messy Get On Up Gets It Right

    It has all the elements of a tall tale told in a Mississippi barroom: Have you heard? Bob's wife went out to Los Angeles and says a restaurant there is serving Hoppin' John for $14!! Can you imagine? Naaaw. It couldn't be. Hoppin' John: that murky side dish found at...
  • A Sex Play That's Not Really About Sex

    Oh, sex: Can we ever get over it? And if we do, what will there be to write about? What would the state of the world be if it weren't largely defined by overt and subliminal sexual impulses? Ian MacAllister-McDonald's new play, The Sexual Lives of Savages, presented by Skylight...
  • L.A.'s Culture War Over America's Last True Skid Row 36

    "Yo!" A black man in a filthy, yellow, collared shirt lies sprawled out in the middle of the Sixth Street sidewalk, out cold. No more than four inches from his face is a Business Improvement District officer, who shouts again: "Yo!" "Is he breathing?" asks a woman passing by, worried...
  • Frank Gehry in Panama 3

    Prominently squatting near the head of a long bridge connecting an archipelago of four small islands to the mainland, Panama City's new Biomuseo looks from a distance like an abstract turtle painted in bright colors. As you draw nearer to the building, the fragmentation of the design becomes clearer, and...
