What Eastside and Westside restaurants are worth crossing town for? KCRW's " Great Eastside Westside Throwdown " includes Los Angeles Times food critic Jonathan Gold 's recommendations. He tells Evan Kleiman on her show " Good Food " exactly where to trek to. But first, the perennial question -- what is the dividing Westside-Eastside line? Says Gold: "I've always assumed the dividing line between east and west was the Los Angeles River. Because once you cross the river things are radically different.

Jeff Spicoli as design inspiration? It's totally true, dude. Visit Superba Snack Bar in Venice and you'll find touches of the legendary character from the 1982 Sean Penn flick "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" here and there. That's because Paul Hibler, who owns Superba as well as the Pitfire Pizza restaurants, hired architects Rebecca Rudolph and Cathy Johnson, who said they hung photos of Spicoli alongside pictures of Paris cafes for inspiration.  The finished restaurant is much like their preliminary design board: Superba has the feel of an indoor-outdoor Parisian cafe with a surfer chic that is distinctly Californian.  Because of the restaurant's small size -- the dining room is only 700 square feet  -- Rudolph said she had to use the outside patio as much as possible.

Wow, so many guest chef gigs are happening it's hard to keep track of who's cooking at whose restaurant. Over the next couple of months, Ben Ford of Ford's Filling Station will be at the Strand House in Manhattan Beach, Shinichi Sato flies in from Paris' Passage 53 to cook at Melisse , and Jason French of Portland's Nedd Ludd will be at Superba Snack Bar in Venice. Then there's the who-can-keep-track continuing guest-chef series Test Kitchen at Bestia downtown.

If you were to invent a restaurant whose specialties include a cauliflower T-bone, you probably couldn't do any better than Superba Snack Bar. It occupies what looks like a corrugated shoe box sliced open at one end, a giant version of the dioramas you may have constructed for social studies in fourth grade. Superba is at the heart of its Rose Avenue neighborhood in a stretch of Venice Beach where the fixed-gear bicycles outnumber cars some afternoons and even the elderly seem acquainted with kombucha and Lululemon.

Jason Neroni is chef of Superba Snack Bar, the just-opened neo-Italian spot in Venice. Neroni's an Orange County native who has cooked at several restaurants in New York; Portland, Ore.; and Southern California, including most recently at Osteria La Buca on Melrose Avenue. Now he's focusing on Superba, with its menu of house-made salumi -- porchetta di testa pastrami on rye with dill pickes, for example; snacks such as fried duck egg or fried chicken; and stand-out pastas - whole wheat rigatoni cacio e pepe, smoked bucatini carbonara and creste de gallo (cockscomb)

Standing in front of the pastry case at Columbia City Bakery in Seattle, I couldn't decide what I wanted. Croissant? Scone? No, no. And then I saw it: A thick slab of heavenly brioche topped with orange flower syrup, almond paste and toasted almonds. That's it. We bought just one piece and the three of us shared it. That meant only a few bites each. But that tall slice of brioche was so rich and satisfying that I actually could and did walk away without ordering a second round, sipping the last of my latte and savoring that last bite in memory.

You can have Italian old school or you can have a version of it that is unlike anything someone's nonna would recognize. Chances are, you will love both and everything in between. Angelini Osteria - Hollywood has always loved Gino Angelini's osteria the most of all his restaurants, a place whose comfortable versions of pan-Italian trattoria classics like saltimbocca, pollo alla diavola, Roman tripe and his grandmother's gooey green lasagna keep the loud dining room busy, and where whatever diet you happen to be on at the time will be accommodated without a fuss.
