  • Outstanding in the Field
Tickets are on sale for Outstanding in the Field's 2013 Tour. As is usually the case, the dates include a preponderance of stops at West Coast farms. In case you don't know much about this travelin' pop-up party, let us illuminate the vibe.

A 60-year-old bus zips around to farms all over the country. At each stop, local chefs of note prepare the farm's products for diner groupies thirsting for a taste of the terroir attached to the meal as well as some hot chef's epic manipulations of the farm's goods: confetti-colored peppers perhaps, or corn as pale and perfect as pearl bunches, fine fresh cheese made, naturally, on the premises, or even farmed abalone.

Turn the page for the upcoming Southern California dates and get that Visa ready.

  • Pollo Loco at ChocoChicken
    ChocoChicken is a restaurant dedicated to chocolate-flavored chicken. It sounds like a joke.

It is not.
