A hip spot right in the heart of Westwood, the Emporium Thai. a street front restaurant, has a chic designed dining room that is easy on the eye, with comfortable booths and tables, and the most pleasant soft background music.

With the opening of Thai Emporium, many of the family began emigrating here, and now work alongside him, including his sister Gina who is the Executive Chef.
Family member Honey Bee (I love that name) walked us through the menu. We followed her suggestions that are featured in the new Thai Tapas Tasting Menu consisting of 4 courses, with an optional wine pairing available.
First Course: Southern Wings with 2016 Margerum Riviera Rose (Santa Barbara County. The hot chicken wings are cooked in Thai spices with Southern Thai curry flavors that beautifully meld together.

It's an exotic papaya salad featuring duo dishes of Pad Kra Pow Gai Sab, Thai basil ground chicken and Panang curry served with crispy pork belly and Jasmine rice with 2015 Quipe Modern Red (Santa Barbara County). This dish is one of the most popular Thai street foods and it is delicious. The special thick and extremely flavorful Panang curry is prepared with crispy pork belly and Jasmine rice.

Award winning Austerity wines were introduced at an elegant wine and food dinner

Sitting across  from Steven DeCosta, the young, knowledgeable and incredibly enthusiastic winemaker of Austerity wines, was contagious. He explained that the premium Austerity wines are wines of the highest discipline, and come from the best and up coming appellations and finest vineyards from San Francisco to Los Angeles along California's Central Coast, including Paso Robles, Santa Lucia Highlands and Arroyo Seco.

He was indeed a highlight of this very special evening where Steven and the feedfeed community with food by James Beard award-winning Chef Suzanne Goin took place at the uber-chic 5-star Lucques at 8474 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood

Our first  course was Leeks Vinigette with Prosciutto, Dandelion, Mustard Breadcrumbs and soft cooked egg, accompanied by a 2015 Austerity Chardonnay. This was followed by a mouthwatering Braised Beef Short Ribs with sauteed greens cipollini onions and horseradish cream and paired with an exceptional 2015 Austerity Pinot Noir. Topping it all off was a Chocolate Cremeux Tart with Cardamom Cream (no need say anymore) paired with  the bold flavor of the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Austerity wines poured had received bronze awards in an international competition and we applaud their achievements.  We also extend kudos to both Chef Suzanne for her sumptuous culinary feast, and Lucques for both their outstanding restaurant and incredibly delightful and attentive staff.

Benjies New York Deli Restaurant and Avenue K Bar in Santa Ana

I knew this was going to be a delicious and delightful double header for me just from the aromas wafting through the parking lot. I also had the feeling that  the passage of time would come to a halt.
Even before I met Lloyd Weinstein, the energetic and enthusiastic "mensch" and owner of Benjies New York Deli Restaurant and Avenue K Bar, childhood memories from the East came flooding back. Most of all I was thrilled to find that I wasn't in the least bit wrong. After reminiscing about the old days, Lloyd and I discovered that in Brooklyn our homes were a block apart, and that we also lived with 3 generations of our families. Yiddish was spoken widely, there was lots of delicious cooking and baking, lots of revelry and most of all lots of love.
Celebrating the "nachas" (joy) of 50 years, family owned restaurant and bar, Benjies & Avenue K, has proven that if you give the customers' good food and service,  they will keep coming back.
Lloyd and his lovely wife and partner Noriko Weinstein are proudly celebrating this anniversary in honor of their parents, Stan and Ellie Weinstein, who found Benjies in 1967.
Their menu includes mouthwatering starters like nova lox or whitefish, stuffed cabbage roll, lox and cream cheese on a bagel, creamed or pickled herring with sliced onion, potato latkes served with applesauce and sour cream, chopped liver with sweet red onions, kishka (stuffed derma)  veggie sausage sliced and grilled with brown gravy on the side, meat or potato filled knish baked into a golden brown pastry.

All are offered  with delicious sides of potato salad, cole slaw macaroni salad and a variety of pickles.
You must leave room for  dessert with mouthwatering choices of apple or cherry strudel, New York cheesecake, a wedge of Halvah with nuts (incredibly sentimental), and the favorite-bread pudding with bourbon sauce and whipped cream.

Along with an astonishing resume of accomplishments, they established Loveblock sustainable wines back in 2004, planting new vineyards in an untamed pasture where sheep used to graze. It brought back wonderful memories for me as I had the opportunity visit Marlborough Atwatere Valley on a recent visit to New Zealand, known for its pristine vineyards surrounded by jagged mountain peaks, brilliant blue skies, crystal clear inlets, and a long, cooling growing season.
The pairing of this wonderful experience took place at Wolf, replete with a contemporary vibe set at the eclectic crossroads of Melrose in Hollywood, an absolutely perfect  venue to present a culinary adventure inspired by the energy of Owner and Executive Chef Marcel Vigneron, along with manager Sean Perman, who joined forces and created the incredible menu to enhance Loveblock and complete the delicious and delightful experience.

He is an artisan who has an affinity for culinary knowledge, who uses a knife as a extension of his hand, and the kitchen as a workshop, the earth as a grocery store. He works with small, local family farms committed to sustainable agriculture, responsible production and promotion of fruits and  vegetables.
We enjoyed Hamahi Crudo, nuoc cham,radish,herbs and puffed rice, along with a smooth Sauvignon Blanc; Mushroom Risotto with pine nut, sorrel, peas, pancetta accompanied by Pinto Gris;An amazing Braised Beef Cheek with jerusalem artichoke, endive, turmeric peppercorn sauce, present alongside an incredible Pinot Noir.  Blueberry Souffle with quince sorbet was the "icing on the cake!"
