Tinseltown is more than just movie stars and big boobs. L.A. Is also a place to be spotted eating delicious edibles. I love going to L.A. Mostly because I allow myself to eat like a ravenous, evil wolf. I don’t even know what that means exactly, but I’m pretty sure they eat what they want. I eat what I want. Anyway, these are some of my favorite places to visit.
Canter’s Deli. It’s a Larry David/ Curb Your Enthusiasm staple. If you like your Rueben crazy big, and at 3 A.M. Then look no further. I once saw Thierry Guetta (aka Mr. Brainwash) come in for like 5 minutes and show some French dude the faux stained glass ceilings and then leave. Oh, L.A.
In the mood for Korean, but don’t want to go to Korea at 10 o’clock on a Friday? Then head to Park’s BBQ. Oh holy efffff! This is the best place to get your cook your own food on.
When I’m feeling like rubbing elbows with the fancier peeps, I head down to Joan’s on Third. They make a grilled cheese with short ribs that is pretty much the sandwich I want served at my wake.
On to the music!
Ya like Sparta? Oh yeah, 300. I like that movie too, but no, seriously. The band. We do.
How about Islands in the stream? That is what they are. No one in between. How could they be wrong?
