In July, Christy Vega kicked off the 60th anniversary celebration of her family’s Sherman Oaks restaurant, Casa Vega, a Ventura Boulevard institution with red leather booths, wrought-iron chandeliers and vivid paintings of Mexican life. She started by hosting a collaborative seven-course dinner with vaunted Baja chef Javier Plascencia. On October 6 the party continues from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., as Casa Vega offers house combos for the same price that father Rafael “Ray” Vega charged when the restaurant first debuted in 1956.

Each house combo costs $2.15 (normally $18.95) and comes with Spanish rice, refried beans and a choice of two main items. Mix and match from a culinary talent pool that includes chile relleno, chicken taco, beef taco, beef enchilada or tamale. $2.15 does not include tax or tip. The restaurant’s devastating margaritas also cost extra.

Inn Style

Walk through the doors of the Valley Inn in Sherman Oaks, and you will find it much the same today as the day it opened—from the cozy, pin-cushion booths to the antique cash register at the bar to the comfort-food-filled menu. “The old-fashioned pot roast, potato pancakes and barbecue ribs are still on the menu, made from the same recipe as they were in 1947. They’re still very popular,” shares veteran head waitress, Pat Saxon.

Coffee For Breakfast Brings Venezuelan Flavors to NoHo

Coffee For Breakfast is an understatement at this tiny family-run restaurant that opened just before New Year’s amidst North Hollywood’s auto repair shops. Yes, their two-group Astra espresso machine produces plenty of coffee beverages, but Caracas natives Ana Frisina, father/chef Giuseppe Frisina, mother Jennay and sister-in-law Julie Frisina also offer a deep menu of Venezuelan comfort food.
