The second iteration of Rustic Monday hits Fraîche on May 30th and features chef Jason Fulilove (Da Vinci, Desert Rose), who's preparing to open the Curious Palate at The Market in Santa Monica Place. He joins Fraîche chef Ben Bailly this bit of friendly rivalry.

It's a three-course, prix-fixe menu ($35) with each chef submitting one dish per course and diners selecting their favorite. (We recommend going with a friend and ordering through the entire menu.) Bailly will do a rustic daube Provencale, while Fulilove will offer a modern Bouillabaise. The first Rustic Monday, with chef Ricardo Zarate, was popular, and seating is limited, so reservations are highly recommended.

    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.
