More Neapolitan-style pizza hits L.A. when Wildcraft Sourdough Pizza opens Feb. 25 in Culver City in the historic Beaux Arts Washington Building on Culver Boulevard. Set to open for lunch and dinner, the sit-down pizza place will serve wood-fired sourdough pizza that crosses the Neapolitan tradition with Southern California culinary inventiveness. The "wild" in the restaurant's name is a reference to the wild yeast in the sourdough starter that is used to make the dough for the pizzas. The "mother dough," fed daily, is the work of executive chef Tin Vuong (also the chef at Abigaile in Hermosa Beach)

This is how to eat an order of pani puri at Samosa House East, home of some of the best Indian snacks in Los Angeles. First, roll up your sleeves. Pani puri is chaat -- Indian street snack food -- and demands to be eaten with the fingers, lustily, and with some degree of abandon. Then get ready to move. Pani puri comes in parts, and it demands a certain degree of focus and speed to assemble. There's the puri -- half a dozen or so egg-sized, eggshell-delicate balls of crisp, transparent fried bread.

A replica of the Bluth's Original Frozen Banana stand in all its giant, yellow glory will finally make an appearance in the Los Angeles area today. Fans anticipating the return of "Arrested Development," which was canceled by Fox in 2006 but is coming back with a premiere May 26 on Netflix, will want to head down to 9300 Culver Boulevard (adjacent to Trader Joe's) from noon to 7 p.m. If you're looking to spot an actual cast member, Judy Greer, who plays Kitty Sanchez, is scheduled to be at the stand between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. The banana stand, which has been making the rounds on a world tour that has included London and New York, sent fans in a tizzy last week when news broke that it may not be making a stop in Newport Beach, where the stand originates in the show.
