Last fall, Blogger, Josh Lurie of Food GPS brought you progressive dining tours of Santa Monica and Downtown. On the afternoon of Sunday, July 25, it's the continuation of the in-depth exploration of L.A.’s best eating neighborhoods as Food GPS spotlights four great restaurants located on (or just off) Beverly Boulevard. Eva, BLD, MILK and The Golden State are the destinations. Each chef-owner will introduce a plate, treat or drink, and it looks like there will be some great surprises in store. Participants will also be able to learn more about the neighborhood’s history and get to know other Los Angeles food lovers. The walking tour begins at Eva at 3 PM and costs $45 per person, including tax and tip.

The Taste of the Beverly Hills is a four-day food, wine, and music extravaganza taking place in Beverly Hills (near the Beverly Hilton Hotel). Chefs from around LA—and the country—are coming together in celebration of what will hopefully become LA’s go-to food and wine festival. Wolfgang Puck, Michael Voltaggio, Jon and Vinny of Animal, Ludo Lefebvre, Walter Manzke, Ted Allen, Scott Conant, and many more, are confirmed to showcase at the event. KCRW’s Jason Bentley is also curating the music lineup and there are some VERY exciting bands in the works (TBD). “Good Food” Host Evan Kleiman is also participating (keep an eye out for her annual pie contest). Chef demos, wine tastings, and LG Electronics’ “Taste of Something Better” amateur chef competition happening LIVE, are just a few of the many exciting events taking place over the weekend.
