End-of-week reviews: S. Irene Virbila continues the Los Angeles Times' experiment in starlessness at Post & Beam, which serves "California comfort food with a sassy Southern accent." Katharine Shilcutt finds that the secret to Houston's Shepherd Park Draught House is "Finding land mines...and navigating around them." Julia Kramer checks out Allium in Chicago, a hotel restaurant built around a famous, house-made hot dog.
