In keeping with the Daily Dish's fine tradition of giving you all the news that's fit to eat (and drink), I'm taking it upon myself to link to two restaurant stories that recently ran in Calendar. The first is a nightlife review of Westside Tavern, which is placing an equal emphasis on fine cocktails and Cal-centric tavern fare.

Next up, we've got a Scene Setter piece that takes a closer look at Good Girl Dinette in Highland Park, which is already packing in weekend crowds with its unique blend of Vietnamese comfort food and American diner vibe. The must-try dish on the menu is the curry chicken pot pie topped with a homemade biscuit.

Read all about it! (And enjoy the photo galleries as well.)
