  • Paul Greenberg's Four Fish

Ammo's Sunday Roast dinners mean different things to different people: you might go for chef Daniel Mattern's good food, for the 10 year-old restaurant's casual setting, for a good value -- usually three courses for $32 -- or for pastry chef Roxana Jullapat's remarkable desserts. You might also go for the books. Yes, books, as the restaurant occasionally hosts book signings.

This Sunday, August 8th, Ammo will host Paul Greenberg's only Los Angeles book signing, after which the author of Four Fish: the Future of the Last Wild Food will himself stay for dinner (fish, unsurprisingly) and be available to talk shop with diners.

In his new book, Greenberg discusses the future of the fishing industry by focusing on the four species of fish (salmon, bass, cod and tuna) that most frequently turn up on our plates. On Ammo's dinner menu: Carlsbad oysters on the half-shell; Kona kampachi crudo with avocado and chile; oven-roasted mussels and clams with summer shell beans and fennel; hot-smoked Arctic char with cucumber and tomato salad; grilled barramundi with eggplant caponata; and, for dessert, roasted figs with honey ice cream. And if you want to know why you're eating what you're eating, you can ask not only the chefs but your (then) resident seafood expert.

Greenberg will sign books, which will be for sale at the restaurant, during a cocktail hour on the patio from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.; dinner will be from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Reservations are recommended. The four course dinner is $50.

Ammo: 1155 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood; (323) 871-2666.

  • Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar
    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
