Planet Dailies – A Daily Dose of Fun

An A-list of celebrities attended the grand opening of the Planet Dailies last April. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jennifer Lopez, and television and radio personality Mario Lopez all attended to sample some of cocktail master Salvatore “The Maestro” Calabrese’s creative cocktails, and Executive Chef Adrian Tenorio’s enticing dishes.

Larry Fink, vice president of public relations for Celebrity Entertainment, was also there to make sure everyone had a good time. This is the second Planet Dailies to open in the United States; the first opened in Las Vegas when Planet Hollywood took over the former Aladdin Hotel and Casino.

In March 2007, Robert Earl, from Earl Enterprise, had a vision to open a 24-hour diner next to the hotel’s casino. He hired the amiable Chef Tenorio to create an extensive array of ultimate coffee shop food. Dishes are made from scratch and are plentiful. The restaurant became a huge success.

Tenorio was the obvious choice to work with Earl in planning the opening of Planet Dailies in Los Angeles, and the Original Farmers Market is the ideal location for the new farm fresh menu. Tenorio visited every stall in the Market while the restaurant was being built, working with some of his neighbors in providing creative dishes. Tenorio took the Las Vegas menu and ramped up farm fresh and healthier dishes for the Los Angeles clientele.

Tenorio starting cooking at age six while living in Austin, Texas. One morning he stood up and said, “I can’t take this anymore” to his mother, because he didn’t like the eggs she prepared. He got out a frying pan and made his own breakfast. “My brother tells the story better than I do,”  Tenorio said. “I was mad and decided to take the matter into my own hands.”
