The Eagle Rock Block Party is already a week from tomorrow, and we here at Wildwood plan to pull more than a few rabbits out of the oven---though not literally this time, as we'll likely be slow roasting a pork shoulder.
Stop by on the 26th between noon and 9pm for complimentary wood-fired nosh, local libations, and fun culinary demonstrations every hour on the hour. Chef Michael Gerard will wow the crowd with lessons in everything from Brazilian BBQ to marshmallow trees. The tunes will be flowing, the shopping will be local, and Yelp will have a photo booth in our front yard!

First, our favorite pastrami-centric neighbor The Oinkster got an Italian sibling with Maximiliano, the latest from Chef Andre Guerrero, and we've long been meaning to stop in and try the classics everyone's been raving about, e.g. Margarita and Spumoni. Then the owners of Eagle Rock's very own Mia Sushi gave ol' Marty's a makeover to open Cafe Lobos, another Highland Park hotspot offering all kinds of tasty comfort food. Macaroni and cheese bar? Yes, please. And now as of yesterday, The Eastsider reports that the restaurant formerly known as Timbo's will soon reopen as Garvanza's Comida Por La Vida come December, a locally-owned eatery that plans to serve "Latin eclectic mix of foods from all regions." So if you're still dining under the misconception that you need to drive to the westside, think again. (And fyi: if you need us, we'll be in Highland Park.)

Eater reported yesterday that Chef Andrew Kirschner will open his new restaurant, Tar & Roses, in Santa Monica by early December, and we're particularly excited by the following details: "we're told that the 'soul' of the restaurant is its wood-burning oven. Kirschner plans to burn a slew of different woods (almond, apple, olive, oak, walnut) to impart flavor on food, and every day the menu will list the daily choice of wood." Wildwood can't wait to taste the results. Kudos, Kirschner!
