Pizza Dough?

Ask almost any neighborhood pizza place that delivers.
I found they're usually used to it, as plenty of others ask the same thing.

Westlake Village coffee and eats

I wanted to try Stonehaus after a review on Eater, but wow! Friday night and there had to be well over 200 people inside and outside. Also a huge parking lot that was full. I'll have to try some other time.

Zo does it better, Sasabune does it worse, which are you looking for, and / or why?

Valley Place To Open Great Red Wines

Hmmm, Valley is pretty broad itself. Azusa, or Thousand Oaks? Granada Hills or Studio City. Somewhere in between?

appliance shopping - los angeles area

since this thread is still here...
In general universal appliance. www.universal-akb.com has the most competitive pricing I have found. Unless a manufacturer restricts it, you can find pricing on their site as well.

Any local LA candy makers?

Japanese confectionery (their words.) Sweets are a bit different in Japan, so in some circles that counts as candy. It sounded like a decent rec. considering the OPs "healthier" requirement.

Starter Knives

Perhaps a set of knives isn't the best way to start. Pool your money for one good chef's knife and use it for everything. Learn how to sharpen it yourself, and you're set for life.

Second Cliff's Edge. Considering every other suggestion was nowhere near Silver Lake it should win by a mile.

Blue Bottle is Taking Over The World

I read it, did you?
It's a press release, not an article.
In it, Handsome is called a "celebrated roaster" not the hyperbolic "most successful roaster in all of Southern California."

Maybe you're missing the point.

Blue Bottle is Taking Over The World

Beards, overalls, fixed gear bikes, seedy downtown neighborhood, the schtick of no sugar "so you can taste the natural sweetness of the coffee." Seems like the poster child to me.
No judgement, but being that trendy may hurt as much as it helps.

Blue Bottle is Taking Over The World

Told them they should offer sugar...
Seriously, perhaps the bigger issue with Handsome was being a little too hip (ster) at the expense of alienating clientele.
Or maybe they got an offer they couldn't refuse, but since two founders had already moved on, I don't think that's the case.

Los Angeles sushi

Mori Sushi is likely the most "pure" in the vicinity of the Beverly Wilshire. 11500 W Pico Blvd

Zo is something else, still quite good and very high quality but a little more embellishment.

I'm not sure where you heard Urasawa isn't worth it, I have universally read that it is which is surprising considering the price point. You might find Urasawa worth it, but may not be willing to spend that kind of money.

Downtown is Q Sushi, which also will fit the bill for a purist experience. http://qsushila.com/home.php

Los Angeles sushi

Post where you are staying and how far you're willing to travel (if you will have a car too,) and I am sure you will get lots of opinions.
Nozawa is gone BTW.

Just in case you don't already know this, birrieria is typically a goat restaurant, small ones are all over town.
