LOS ANGELES RESTAURANT
By Andrea Richards
Los Angeles is one of the top restaurant cities in the world, and while much of the focus is on the new, it's the old standbys that offer a true taste of the city.
These classic locales―best termed "joints" for their timeless flair―offer a unique perspective into the city's past and, in their enduring appeal, reveal what LA continues to be.
Featuring more than fifty joints, including profiles of longtime patrons, plus their favorite menu items, "Los Angeles Restaurants" is proof that sometimes a dark corner booth in a mid-century steakhouse or a spot at a busy lunch counter is the best seat in town.
