‘Discoveries’

La Concha

WHY Hunger-killing tortas ahogadas. WHAT An unassuming place crammed into a corner strip mall that often goes unnoticed on this busy block, this place covers all the expected Mexican bases— but the real reason to visit is the Guadalajaran specialties. La Concha’s torta ahogada is the best around: slabs of crusty bread stuffed with crisp [...]

El Taco Loco No. 3

WHY An honest taqueria that capably handles the classics. WHAT El Taco Loco No. 3 earned its number as part of a loosely affiliated South Bay chain, though many share tenuous ties at best. This location is particularly true to the taqueria tradition: fresh-made tortillas, all the meat (offal and otherwise) that you could want [...]

Nic’s Martini Lounge

WHY Dress-up fun in the heart of Beverly Hills, with a piano bar, often-good jazz and a walk-in vodka freezer that brings out the Russian in everyone. WHAT Larry Nicola was well ahead of the cocktail craze that’s swept L.A.—he decamped from Silver Lake some years ago to open this swank (and only slightly tongue-in-cheek) [...]

Pann’s Restaurant

EatLA-1430

WHY An L.A. classic for its ’50s roots and Googie architecture alone—but when you add the waffles, patty melt, fried chicken and incredible biscuits… well, it’s a downright treasure. WHAT George and Rena Panagopoulos opened this Jetsons-style restaurant in 1958, and the family still runs it today. They’ve kept the place in tip-top condition, and [...]

Otomisan

EatLA-1427

WHY When you’re in Boyle Heights but don’t want Mexican food. WHAT You’ll feel like you’re walking into the film L.A. Confidential when you pull open the screen door to this diner, which has just five stools and three leatherette booths. It’s a vestige of when Boyle Heights was a hub of Japanese immigrants, before [...]

Pollos el Brasero

WHY Straightforward, tasty, very cheap Peruvian fire-roasted chicken served in a cheerful dive. WHAT We’re not as gaga for this chicken as some—it’s a wee bit bland, and it can get dry, depending on how long it’s been sitting around—but it has a wonderful, mahogany skin and a nice smokiness, and it’s a hell of [...]

Platine Sweet & Savories

EatLA-1419

WHY Customized, ‘couture’ cookies, brownies and teeny pots de crème for parties and gifts, and impulse treats to take home for yourself. WHAT This cookie boutique occupies a commercial kitchen in frumpy west Culver City, with a tiny counter and no seating. Despite the spare setting, the product has all the preciousness of a Sprinkles—a [...]
