Happy 2017 everyone!
For the first week of the new year we’re zoning in on a new happy hour at Petty Cash and giving a little link love to a new food center in Long Beach comprised entirely of shipping containers (neat!). Plus: A few of L.A.’s top food insiders give their personal predictions for 2017.
Your weekly L.A. food news rundown starts NOW.

2017 According to some L.A. insiders
LA Restaurant Headline Predictions for 2017 according to Eater LA and a slew of other L.A. writers are worth a read. I’m hoping some of these actually come true (specifically the Hedgehog Cafe! 🙏)
Bixby Knolls receives a cool update
A food-focused shopping center called SteelCraft is set to grand open in Bixby Knolls the first weekend of February. Built with repurposed shipping containers you can “Think of it as a food truck, and we took the wheels off,” said Mark Turpin, president of Turpin Design Group who designed the space. Although the grand opening is a month away, Steelhead Coffee and Smog City Brewery are already open and serving the public. In the coming month we will see DeSano Pizza Bakery, from Santa Monica ; Waffle Love, from Utah ; Tajima Ramen House from San Diego; and Fresh Shave, serving Hawaiian shave ice open with more to come.
Finally, just a quick snapshot of the best thing we’ve eaten in the past week…
The Al Pastor Taco at Petty Cash is made with succulent adobo-chile rubbed pork shoulder and topped with a generous slice of sweet pineapple.
