My big fave, Georgio’s Cucina in Studio City, has a brand new website featuring their new chef, Jeffrey Nimer.  Check it for daily specials. Not to be missed is the special Sunday Supper—a three course meal is $15. Wine is $6 a glass and $14 a bottle. The restaurant is also prepping to open for lunch and Sunday Brunch in a couple weeks. Stay tuned for details here.

There’s a whole lot going on at the Daily Grill these days.  They’re getting into the big burger biz by adding a grinder in each location’s kitchens to freshly grind the meat twice daily.  Currently there are three specialty 1/2 pound hand formed angus burgers offered: the Classic Cheeseburger, Wild Mushroom Burger and Pepper Bacon Burger for $10.95-$12.95, including fries.  There is also a new meat loaf recipe  and a full gluten-free menu.
