The Los Angeles Food Bowl is back this May.

The Food Bowl is back. People dressed to the nines at 10:30 in the morning on a Tuesday to attend the kick off party. The raw energy filled with eager anticipation reminded me of a large crowd awaiting Bruno Mars to take the stage at one of his concerts. The event was held at Otium, a posh place next to The Broad in DTLA. The stars of the event were CEO and publish of the LA Times, Ross Levinsohn, and their award-winning food critic, Jonathan Gold. Chef Wes Avilla of Guerilla Tacos served his cauliflower tacos, a subtle preview of what to be expected at this years 31 day event: a food festival that puts all other food festivals to shame.
