7:00pm to 10:00pm

Tickets are on sale now for Tasting Table’s annual #LobsterRumble, returning to Los Angeles on August 13, 2015. Now in its third year, the #LobsterRumble is the ultimate lobster roll showdown with all-you-can-eat lobster rolls from contenders across the country, with each vying to be crowned fan favorite.

1,200 lobster-loving guests will get to taste and vote their way through 17 of America’s top lobster rolls, and yes -- that means 17 rolls with your name on them.

Here’s a taste of the contenders and lobster rolls competing this year:

Ironside Fish & Oyster (San Diego) - Butter-poached Maine lobster served with brown butter aioli on a crispy butter & cream cheese roll

Knuckle & Claw (Los Angeles) -  A fresh Rockenwagner Parker Roll stuffed with a 1/4 pound of fresh knuckle & claw lobster meat, flown in overnight from the cold waters of Maine. A light smear of mayonnaise, a squirt of butter, a squeeze of lemon, topped with extra delicious secret seasoning.

Cousins Maine Lobster (Los Angeles) - Fresh Maine claw, knuckle and tail meat, flown directly from Maine. Sautéed in butter, drawn lemon-butter drizzled on top, and served in  toasted golden brown, Maine, split-top buns.  

Slapfish (Huntington Beach) - 100% pure New England lobster tossed in warm butter, mayo and lemon and packed into a buttery roll.

17 total lobster rolls from around the country! Click here for a full list of contenders.

Desserts will be provided by six local purveyors, including Drive Me Cookie and Sprinkles Cupcakes, and to wash it all down, Stella Artois beers, premium wines and custom cocktails will be pouring at the open bars.

Filipino food‹LASA at elysian

ELYSIAN LA

2806 Clearwater St., Los Angeles, CA

6:30pm

Filipino food is known for its adobos, fried seafood and vinegar-laden dishes with flavors that are bold, bright, savory and, at times, funky. It could be said that it is not a cuisine the general population, even in a food-adventurous city like Los Angeles, explores with abandon. But a young Filipino chef and his brother are looking to change all that.

Through October 30th, 2015, the Filipino inspired pop-up and restaurant project, LASA, will be offering their take on this up-and-coming ethnic cuisine the last Friday of the month at the beautiful bar/restaurant and private event venue, Elysian. Reservations are recommended. Spots can be reserved on Open Table or by calling 323-522-6625. Walk-ins are welcomed and seated on a first come first serve basis.
