Returning customers that step-foot upon the Shenandoah at the Arbor’s restaurant in Los Alamitos will quickly realize that the restaurant no longer looks the same. What was once a restaurant that provided customers with a taste and feel for the South has drastically changed the theme of their venue from shabby chic to farmhouse. Shenandoah owner, Jill Wilson said, “We have done a lot of changes from the chairs, paint, curtains and tablecloths; returning customers are sure to
Sideyard Café’s menu has all of your favorite classics. Sandwiches, salads, burgers, breakfast…the list goes on (and I think I’ve had all of them). But one of the best parts about Sideyard Café is the specialty items—the mouth-watering chef creations that are too good not to share. That’s why you have to check the chalkboard when you walk in. If it’s breakfast, you can’t go wrong with the Messy Jessy burrito. But right now, the best deal is during happy hour (3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Sometimes we get so busy craving burritos, tacos, quesadillas, rice and beans that we forget about appetizers at Mexican restaurants. Super Mex on Spring Street gives us a tasteful reminder that appetizers and cervezas with friends and families is as much a tradition in cantinas as it is in other bars around the world. And if you’re like most Mexican food-craving Southern Californians, it might be even more delicious. Here are some of Super Mex on Springs Street’s favorite p

Russo’s Neighborhood Ristorante and Bar served its last Pasta e Risotto on Wednesday, Nov. 7 after 30 years of providing delicious food, a warm atmosphere, and family service to the community in Naples and beyond. As it had been for the last three weeks, the restaurant was packed with customers fiending for one last taste of the iconic Italian Ristorante and holding back tears while hugging the owners, servers, and staff that had become family. Regulars Susie and Randy King s
The last few times I went to Prime by Shenandoah, I’ve been enamored with the seasonal dishes (and rightfully so.) That’s part of what makes Prime so fun and trendy—the seasonal, savory specials! But during my last visit, enough was enough. It was time for me to try the sandwich Prime is known for, which contains delicious fried chicken that’s already locally famous. That’s right, I’m talking about the Granny’s Fried Chicken (GFC) Sandwich. First, a quick history lesson. If y
On a recent sunny, midday afternoon, I walked into my favorite restaurant in Long Beach – Chuck’s Coffee Shop, located at 4120 East Ocean Blvd. The diner, which has been around since 1964, has undergone some slight cosmetic changes as of late.

The beach theme makes sense, since the eatery overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
