This week in reviews: LA Weekly critic Jonathan Gold doesn't really care if you think it's too soon for him to review yet another Korean pork place: "As the air grows still and hot, the days melt into languor and the Dodgers swoon toward the cellar, the pull of summer food becomes impossibly strong." Also, Pat Bruno checks out Paul Virant's takeover at Perennial Virant and eats dinner in a bank vault at the Bedford in Chicago.

And lede of the day goes to Chris Shott of the Washington City Paper for his review of Serendipity 3 in which someone sitting next to him puked: "I had just managed to choke down an entire $12 'Monumental Hangover' omelet—a feat almost as daunting and dubious as its name suggests—when the guy sitting next to me suddenly lost his lunch."
