A new organic and vegan restaurant recently opened in Silverlake called Little Pine Restaurant. The concept was created by musician Moby, who opened the restaurant with chef Kristyne Starling (former chef de cuisine at Aventine). Moby says, “the food at little pine is, of course, why the restaurant exists.  I don’t eat non-organic and non-vegan food at home, so i don’t know why I’d serve anything other than organic and vegan food in my restaurant.”

Little Pine offers mediterranean inspired California cuisine featuring 100% organic plant-based produce and ingredients. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, and weekend brunch, and features an extensive wine and beer list.

The place was designed by L.A.-based Studio Hus along with Moby’s hand and heart.  More charm than chic, this plant-based eatery is a welcoming oasis in the forest of Los Angeles.

Little Pine will also include a small retail space in the front with art books, candles that smell nice, teas, and soaps.

The room features lots of pinewood, a long banquette with patterned pillows and a larger dining table tucked into a cozy nook, where you’ll find a wall covered in one of Moby’s prints of snow-covered trees from Mt. Baldy.

Throughout the month of February – National Chocolate Lovers’ Month – Tasti D-lite will feature a variety of decadent chocolate flavors such as Brownie Batter, Chocoleche, Mint Chocolate, Rocky Road, Mud Pie, Banana Fudge, Caramel Fudge, Coconut Fudge, and Chocolate Caramel Meringue, and offer 50% off to-go quarts of all chocolate flavors (regularly $8.99). And, to sweeten the deal, Tasti D-lite will also offer a 2-for-1 “date deal” for sweethearts on Valentine’s Day for the Chocolate Covered Strawberry flavor featured that day.

Tasti D-lite is a frozen dairy treat in a category all of its own. Tasti’s creamy texture and sweet ice cream-like taste is lower in fat than ice cream and lower in carbs and sugar than frozen yogurt, but with the same fun experience of self-serve and unlimited toppings. With this healthier option, Tasti D-lite helps to “Dessert Your Guilt” this Valentine’s Day and Chocolate Lovers’ Month.

Through July 29, Pacific Design Center’s Blue Lobby features three alluring solo sculpture exhibits that pair natural materials with industrial ones: Proposal for New Landscapes by Nobuo Sekine, one of the key founders of Japan’s Mono-ha (“School of Things”) movement and that nods to an overdue exploration of Japanese postwar culture; a retrospective by Italian architect/designer Antonio Pio Saracino and Lautner Beams by LA-based Matt Johnson, featuring metaphysical visualizations of string theory as re-purposed steel cast-offs from John Lautner’s demolished Shusett House.

Featuring 5K and 10K courses that start and finish in front of the City Hall, thousands of runners will be dressed in costumes of turkeys, pilgrims, and pies will follow a scenic course through Bunker Hill and Spring Street passing by such sites as the new Broad Museum, Grand Park, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and MOCA.

Families can bring little ones for the “Widdle Wobble” (ages 2-12), which is a fun run around Grand Park and features a fantastic kid zone. Participants can also enjoy memorable photo opportunities with the 20 ft. tall turkey in front of the City Hall finish line.
