  • Dining review: Grain Lab stands out from the chain crowd

    Dining review: Grain Lab stands out from the chain crowd
    Squeezed on all sides by chain shops and eateries in Burbank's Empire Center, Grain Lab is an independent island. The small eatery, which opened last month, has the minimal look of a hip chain, with a slightly industrial-meets-organic laboratory feel with...

    Dining Review: Vegetarian's paradise in Burbank
    There are designers who specialize in making new buildings look old — fabricating that used and loved look before any actual customers arrive. Their tools include distressed wood, scratched steel and pre-aged Naugahyde, for an instant patina of...
  • Dining review: Take a wildly successful trip to the deli

    Dining review: Take a wildly successful trip to the deli
    There should be a course at cooking schools called the Psychology of Restaurants. What makes us go into one restaurant and avoid another? For instance, my personal biases make me resist places that look corporate and slickly merchandised. So I was a...
  • Small Wonders: Does anyone really care what they think?

    There used to be a time when the only people who cared what junk-food companies did were health advocates. How I long for those days. Can we not have our artery-clogging pizzas, breaded chicken filet sandwiches and crème-filled cookies without...

    Dining review: A touch of Saigon
    With its stylized olive-and-black façade and the silhouette of a lone woman in a wide hat standing in the midst of white lettering, Mama Hong's Vietnamese Kitchen stands out on Burbank's San Fernando Boulevard. Inside, spare décor and clean lines...
  • Dining review: A taste of the second city on the left coast

    Dining review: A taste of the second city on the left coast
    When I go to Chicago, I pack some clothes that won’t be coming back with me — socks wearing through at the heel, shirts that don’t really match anything else in my wardrobe, shoes that I think about wearing but rarely do. It’s...
  • Dining review: Ramen that will do in a pinch

    Dining review: Ramen that will do in a pinch
    By the time I got to Orochon Ramen, my dinner mates were like grumpy bears. The table was cramped and they’d ordered drinks that never materialized. I was undaunted. Parking was easier than I thought it would be in Downtown Burbank, and I liked what...
  • Burbank shop owners partake in National Donut Day

    Burbank shop owners partake in National Donut Day
    Several local shops on Friday took part in National Donut Day — a celebration of the origins of that sugary, deep-fried bread that taunts dieters. National Donut Day dates back to the Great Depression when the Salvation Army started it as a...

    Community: Three seniors pick up women's scholarships
    Three Burbank High School graduating seniors were honored at the Burbank University Women's Scholarship Tea at the home of Marcia Baroda May 10. Receiving college scholarships were Seda Byrut and Valery Vasquez from Burbank High School and Jordan Bradley...
  • Burb's Eye View: Better charity through music and pancakes

    In the back corner of the John Burroughs High School courtyard, about as far as you can get from the stage and still keep an ear on the action, Connie Trimble packed up the last of her cooking utensils. On that stage all Saturday morning, the varied...
  • Burb's Eye View: A taste of giving and community

    In a year of dining in Burbank, I have only sampled a fraction of the culinary tapestry that invites diners to explore different cultures downtown. Sure, my wife and I have our favorites, but there are only so many Market City breadsticks one can stuff...
  • Dining review: It's what's inside that counts

    Dining review: It's what's inside that counts
    More portable than a PB&J, less messy than pizza, the empanada may be the perfect to-go meal. The savory Argentine pastries pack a taste wallop in a palm-sized package. Now Burbank has a new empanada outlet to supply picnics, trips to the park and I-just-...
