Outdoor dining at Uptown Whittier Promenade features many tasty options

They call it the Uptown Whittier Promenade — three blocks on Greenleaf Avenue that have been closed to traffic so that the many restaurants can expand into the street. So that strollers can happily move up and down, pushing baby buggies, and snuggling close. And so that live music can come from the park in the middle of the block, drawing a large crowd of dancers, dawdlers and face-masked celebrants, happy to be outside for a safe spell.

On a recent night, there were also religious services at two spots along Greenleaf. Praise the Lord — and pass the bread basket!

The dining choices are many, as befits the Greenleaf Restaurant Row. Uptown Whittier has outdoor dining down pat at eateries like Supermex (6554 Greenleaf Ave., Whittier; 562-399-5000,, Pho & Roll (7007 Gre...

So this seems the ideal moment to get advice from a pro. It’s compiled in a book to be released later this month, titled “How to Photograph Food: Compose, Shoot, and Edit Appetizing Images,” by award-winning European photographer Beata Lubas.

She grew up in Poland and was accepted into the University of Derby as an English literature major. But as enrollment drew near, she decided not to go because that would delay her dream of buying a camera and taking pictures. Right move.

She’s won a host of honors including the BBC Fresh Talent Award 2017 and the UK Blog Awards, Highly Commended 2016...

Chargers QB Justin Herbert to start vs. Carolina with Tyrod Taylor out

COSTA MESA — Chargers tight end Hunter Henry didn’t learn Justin Herbert was playing last week until the rookie quarterback entered the huddle for the first play against the Kansas City Chiefs.

There won’t be any surprises for Herbert’s second career start. On Wednesday, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn named Herbert the starter for Sunday’s Week 3 game against the Carolina Panthers at SoFi Stadium.

Lynn said Tyrod Taylor won’t be 100% healthy this week because of the accidental punctured lung Taylor sustained after a team doctor administered a pain-killing injection to his cracked ribs before kickoff against the Chiefs.

The medical mishap led to Herbert’s impressive debut on short notice.

“Justin Herbert will start at quarterback,” Lynn said...
