This stylish café puts a premium on locally-sourced and sustainable ingredients. The place is wholesome without being staid, a perfect choice for an unpretentious gourmet. Breakfast is popular, with dishes like the power breakfast and carrot hot cakes catering towards the health-conscious who don’t want to sacrifice the Los Angeles brunch ritual. Generous cocktail and brew menus round out the offerings along with soup, salad, pizza, and burgers for lunch.
There's nothing fancy about eating tender BBQ ribs at this casual hang. The atmosphere here makes it the perfect spot to get that delicious sauce all over your face. Free peanuts are available in huge barrels and most of the shells wind up on the floor. For those who'd prefer to pass on the red meat (which is a shame) there's always Mary's Delight, a skinless, boneless breast of chicken covered with that same, sweet sauce.
Though the name of this restaurant is quite a mouthful, its philosophy is simple: good food and live entertainment. With all the ultra-trendy bars in L.A. for people under 40, it's good to find one where all ages are welcome, including those of the older set. Affordable appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, salads, and soups round out the menu at Joe's, but the real reason folks keep coming back for more is the live music every night. You won't hear some obscure punk band coming out of the speakers. Blues, Rockabilly, Country, Jazz, Swing, karaoke, and classic Rock and Roll are featured every day of the week through great local artists and bands, so be sure to make use of the smooth wooden dance floor.
The flagship of this charming chain looks and feels as good as ever. Designated as a State Point of Historical Interest, this is the first Bob's Big Boy! Take a moment to admire the huge Big Boy statue before you head inside this child-friendly spot. Enjoy classic American diner food that feels like the type of dishes Fonzie would approve of. There is even car-hop service on the weekends. Friday night brings loads of car enthusiasts showing off their hotrods.
