While everyone was talking about SLC restaurants/dining I saw this website with L.A. eateries. Next time you’re there for a UCLA or USC game (or for whatever reason) here are the ones on the list where I’ve eaten many times and recommend:
Apple Pan - legendary burgers, long line unless you go at off hours. You’ve got to go there.
Dan Tana’s - fun West L.A./Hollywood kind of place. You’ll see stars and celebrities there often.
Lawry’s - Prime rib’s their specialty. First class red meat if you’re into that.
Musso & Frank - Lots of Hollywood history and atmosphere. Like stepping back 50 years.
Langer’s - An honest to goodness Jewish deli. Great food.
Pacific Dining Car - Atmosphere. Iconic place. Good food.
Philippe’s - Legendary French dip sandwich. Sawdust on the floors. Another step back into 50
years ago. Another must-go place.
