Broadway Deli, which Bruce Marder and Marvin Zeidler opened in 1990 on the Santa Monica promenade, closed its doors for the last time on Monday. Santa Monica Daily Press reports that the lease had expired, the rent had tripled, and Marder and Zeidler were threatened with a lawsuit if they didn't vacate the premises by November 30th. Thus they closed up shop. Promenade Gateway, which owns the space and has requested permits to subdivide it, has not announced who the new tenants will be. Read Chowhound's collective, albeit hardly glowing, eulogy here.

    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.
