Nobu at Nobu, LA's Michelin Win, Pinkberry's Health Benefits, More!

WEST HOLLYWOOD—On Thursday May 14th, Nobu Matsuhisa will prepare a special seven-course Omakase and sake tasting at his WeHo destination. On the menu will be dishes like live soft shell crab with uni yuzu dressing and oven roasted wagyu beef with truffle teriyaki, all paired with sake. $170 per person. [EaterWire]

FROYOLAND—The LAT health blog breaks down whether or not Pinkberry is good for you, without a definite answer. [Booster Shots]

PEBBLE BEACH—It took a few days, but Dana Cowin and her merry band of food folks have made their decision: "Judges (including me, Gail Simmons, Ted Allen Cat Cora) for Michelin dinners rated the LA chefs the winner by a teeny tiny fraction."

EARTH DAY FUN—Consider this a counterpoint to Carla Spartos' anti-slow movement rant this morning: a your disturbing graphic of the rate at which cows, pigs, and chickens are slaughtered in the US. [Herbiv via ENY]

LONDON—It's outside of our normal beat, but seeing as how Fat Duck is the #2 restaurant in the world, it's noteworthy that Heston Blumenthal is rumored to be opening a new restaurant in London. [CS]
