Pink Fire Pointer Live and Dine L.A.

Live and Dine L.A.

On a warm Sunday evening a couple of weeks ago I went to "Live and Dine L.A." at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica.  This was a fabulous food and wine event put on by Angeleno Magazine with the proceeds benefiting P.S. ARTS, an organization that raises money to put the arts back into the public schools of Los Angeles.  The event featured some of the best restaurants in L.A. and highlighted some of their iconic dishes and great wines.  We ate our way from one end of the event to the other and along the way were introduced to some great new restaurants, exciting new wines, and lovely people involved with the magazine and P.S. ARTS.  On a beautiful night in Los Angeles., I can't think of anything more fun! And it was all for a good cause.

The event coincided with Angeleno's Annual Restaurant Issue

Tar and Roses is a hot new restaurant in Santa Monica

These wines were excellent

Delicious miniature pot pies from Palihouse Courtyard Brasserie

This dish from Post and Beam was beautiful and delicious!

Black cod with pickled cucumber from Picca

The cooks were happy

Everyone was having fun -- the musical entertainment added to the festivities

We ended with dessert from Cooks County -- Huckleberry Meringues

And some great coffee from Handsome Coffee Roasters

If you live in Los Angeles or visit here next summer, try to go to this event.  It is a great summer night in Santa Monica with some of the best food and wines around.  And you will feel good about supporting a wonderful charity that benefits children.
