For years now, I’ve kept up with LA’s everchanging restaurant landscape through Jay Weston’s Restaurant Newsletter. The film producer has published his print-only chatty 411 about Industry watering holes for 22 years. Heck, he helped put Nobu Matsuhisa on the Map Of The Stars. But in this rotten economy all of Weston’s advertising has disappeared so he can’t print the latest newsletter. (He tells me it reviews the neighborhood restaurant Amici Brentwood, and the new SLS Hotel’s weird but wonderful Spanish restaurant Bazaar, and an expensive Japanese steak house on Pico so myserious no one can get in without a personal introduction from a customer…) The rate is $2,500 for a full-page color ad.
