Feast from The East - new restaurant addition

Thanks to a reader's suggestion, we have added to new entry to our restaurant page ultimateLA.com - Los Angeles Restaurants Bars & Clubs. The new addition is Feast from The East in Westwood, on Westwood Blvd. The tag line, is "The Best Chinese Chicken Salad in Town," and we believe it. They don't seem to have a website, so we have linked to a restaurant review in The Daily Bruin, which is the UCLA student newspaper. Enjoy!

Looks like Yahoo wants their media group to be located near Hollywood. Yahoo will have up to 1,000 employees at this site. Definately a boon to Westside apartment owners and restaurants/bars that cater to the 20s & 30s crowd.

Sunnin Lebanese Cafe - new restaurant addition

In the mood for some middle eastern food? Try Sunnin Lebanese Cafe, in Westwood. Authentic, a no frills atmosphere and a good value. We had the Chicken Shawarma, which works wonderfully with the warm pita bread that they provide. We have added Sunnin to our ultimateLA.com - Restaurants, Bars & Clubs page, enjoy!
