I was just noticing LA Mommies looking for places to eat with their kids besides Chucky Cheese. Thought you’d like to know about this new offering from Jessica Biel:
Delish.com takes you inside Jessica Biel’s new restaurant Au Fudge, which opened its doors on March 4 in Los Angeles.
In the feature and video, Jessica opens up about the inspiration behind the restaurant, which she and her confounders envisioned as a stylish escape for parents who can unwind with a glass of rosé on the patio, while their kids (supervised under the watchful eye of an au pair) play in a drum circle or climb an indoor treehouse.
Not only is Au Fudge a playground for kids and parents, it also serves delicious dishes and treats – Jessica’s personal favorites are the vegan Caesar salad, chicken nuggets and French fries, and avalanche bars (brick-thick rice krispy treats studded with chocolate chips and sprinkles).

Yamashiro Launches Sunday Brunch
Series Starting Mother’s Day 2017
Originally built in 1914 as a private residence, Yamashiro (“Mountain Palace” in Japanese) took its inspiration from the classical Asian art and architecture that was the passion and business of its original owners the Bernheimer brothers. Over its 102-year life, it’s taken on many identities including a brothel and a boarding house, before becoming a private cocktail lounge for the golden era of the Hollywood elite in 1963. A full-service restaurant soon followed, ultimately catapulting Yamashiro into a world-famous dining destination in the 1970s and ’80s. The property’s regal Asian influences and breathtaking, 180-degree views from downtown Los Angeles to the Santa Monica shore have been featured in popular films such as Memoirs of a Geisha, Gone in 60 Seconds, and Kill Bill, as well as numerous travel shows.
Yamashiro Hollywood is launching a new Sunday Brunch buffet this Mother’s Day, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The iconic restaurant, which previously only opened for dinner, will continue brunch service year-round every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A longtime Hollywood favorite of locals and travelers alike for celebrating special occasions, the scenic restaurant’s brunch service will feature a buffet with multiple themed stations with dish selections including crab legs, shrimp cocktail, oysters, prime rib, chicken and waffles, omelets, build-your-own salads and cold favorites like smoked salmon and yogurts. For dessert, guests can choose from a variety of danishes and cupcakes.
All moms will receive a complimentary glass of champagne on Mother’s Day.
Brunch starts at $29 for kids and $50 for adults. A $65 option will include brunch and bottomless mimosas, Bloody Marys or bellinis.
Yamashiro is located at 1999 Sycamore Ave. and is open from 5-11 p.m. on weekdays and 5 p.m. to midnight on weekends, in addition to Sunday Brunch service. Reservations can be made through OpenTable, via phone 323.466.5125 or by email email@example.com.

Fresh and feminine in just the right mix to meet your dreams in 2017. The Teabag Project’s peace scarf is also available in cashmere for $85.

Check out my Crowdrise fundraising page. I’m raising money to help pay for a trip to New York City with other dancers from my high school here in New Mexico. I’ve never been to New York, but am so excited for the opportunity to take professional dance classes and find out if I have what it takes to follow my dreams.
Not only have I already raised 8% of my goal (in less than 24 hours), but I wanted to share this in case you have cause of your own that needs funding! My mom set this up for me, mostly because I’ve been babysitting and doing other things to raise money for my trip, like caroling at the mall and washing cars with the other dancers!
Anyway, Crowdrise is easy to use and we picked it because it has the fewest restrictions and fees. Since today is #GivingTuesday, I thought it would be a good time to share this with you. Take a look at my campaign if you need some inspiration.
Huge thank you to Crowdrise and everyone who has shared, liked, and or contributed to my cause – it all helps. I’m getting teary thinking about the outpouring of support. #FeelingLoved
