LA East Elite Tasting: Burgers, Pizza, Beer And Wine, Oh My

Smashburger-Basil Pizza (33 of 33)

LA East Elites sporting the '14 badge kicked off the new year with a smashing tasting event at L.A. Live's newest eateries, Smashburger and Live Basil Pizza. The not-yet-open-to-the-public eateries invited guests out to work their way through a serious lineup of stellar offerings that included Live Basil's hand-crafted artisan pizzas presented by Chef Jason and Smashburger's juicy, succulent burgers and fried to perfection sides introduced by none other than Tom Ryan, Founder and Chief Concept Officer. As if that wasn't enough, complimentary beer and wine was flowing, and there was even a salted caramel shake thrown in for good measure.
