Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken. Pioneers of the LA Foodie Scene along with Mr. Puck and his Pizza.
These two have been testing the waters and succeeding since 1980 with their City Restaurant on La Brea.
Maybe Julia Child should have played football? Oh the irony of her last name!
They also had one of the first LA based gourmet food shows. I always thought their chemistry was funny because they seemed really bitchy with each other, like sisters or best friends. Two Hot Tamales. Too clever. They appeared with Julia Child on her show too.
They hung on all through the excessive 80's, trendy 90's and into the new century with their Border Grill Restaurant and also Ciudad which I was sad to see was converted back to a Border Grill last year to mark the 25th Anniversary of Border Grillism. They also have a Vegas restaurant. Need I say more?
Susan Feniger recently opened STREET on La Brea, in keeping with small bite trends and global food influences. And now... NOW they have a taco truck!!!! Menu looks super fun! Way to go girlies.
PS. Their Mesa Mexicana cookbook is GREAT.
