The August Hit List: All Time, El Granjero Cantina, Lasita, and More


Even with changing mask mandates (get covered, stay covered!), our perfect L.A. summer continues to roll on like a skateboarder at the 2021 Olympics. Sun’s out, so are the buns — burger and bao, that is. More people are at the beach every weekend, which means some interior neighborhoods are less crowded for exploring. It’s a win-win, wherever you decide to hang out.

There’s a new patio to go along with “foo foo” drinks and Kanton Knishes on Fairfax, a colorful Mexican cantina at the Original Farmers Market, and more lechon and natural wines than you can handle in Chinatown. Find your new favorites and more in this month’s Hit List.
