The summer was no slacker when it came to big openings and spectacular food events. But starting this week, the action shifts into high gear with the first heavily anticipated openings that will lead us through a major fall season. With new projects coming from Michael Voltaggio, Wolfgang Puck, Alain Giraud, Nancy Silverton, Josef Centeno, Josie Le Balch, along with two brand new food festivals and an ambitious brewery from Tony Yanow, we have plenty to look forward to this season. We also checked in with a few of L.A.'s chefs to see what has them chomping at the bit for autumn to arrive. Come take a look at the openings, events, and ingredients that we can hardly wait for as fall approaches. And make sure you check out Grub Street’s fall preview coverage in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Boston, too!
