L.A.'s BritWeek kicks off
Now through May 8, it's BritWeek, celebrating all things British in Los Angeles. (Who knew Raymond Chandler was a Brit?) Along with an opening gala with Tony Blair in Beverly Hills, events include a citywide pub dart tournament, a UB40 concert at House of Blues and a British astrophysicists lecture at Griffith Observatory.
If you're looking for Welsh rarebit, black pudding, Battenburg cake, fish and chips, and more U.K. eats, the Four Seasons at Beverly Hills is offering high tea in the garden and "Rule Britannia" breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.
Chef Brendan Collins at the Palihouse is offering BritWeek menus too, with choices such as bangers and mash, roast beef with Yorkshire puddings, cheese and onion pastie, and treacle tart and sticky toffee pudding. Bonus: This is also a preview of his menu at the coming gastropub at Palihouse Vine.
