My wife and I are traveling back this weekend just for this. I haven't been since I was a kid. Any vendors to recommend? Any specific foods to seek out? I also want to thank every one who has contributed to this thread. It gives us a lot of places to check out.

Take care,

Grand Central Market - hours warning

Unfortunately it's a self fulfilling prophecy. When it first opened late. The were a lot more vendors open, though not all. However, over time some closed since the crowds weren't there. Tho only way to get the other vendors to open is for more people to show up and buy things.

July is National Hot Dog & Sausage Month

Did you try the "New" Brooklyn Natural Casing Dog?

I'd like to echo JL and thank Nosh for taking this on. FYI this feature was introduced to us by the Chow powers that be as neighborhood of the month. There was significant consensus at the time that the folks in LA would prefer dish of the month because LA is so spread out as Nosh has mentioned. I was the one to nominate K-town cause I kinda like the NOTM idea better and I think switching it up every once in a while is a good thing. So Nominate GCM or even DTLA and see what comes of it. I'll definitely vote for it.

While I find Eater LA helpful, I don't find it to be the "be all and end all of food info in LA". I'd like to see what my fellow hounds come up with.

I second SKEWERS, because Dommy! would want me to.

Freshly made sesame oil in Koreatown?

In case anyone was wondering what the bottle looked like, I bought some today. It's $20 for 18 oz of the Black Sesame and I think $17 for the Regular Sesame

BRUNCH/LUNCH FOR SIX in DTLA before a visit to the Natural History Museum

Very good options near the museum.

Bacaro LA

Nature's Brew

LA Vacation in July - Critique my choices!

For upscale Mexican near the Westside, consider Mexicano in the Baldwin Hills Plaza. This is a fairly new restaurant opened by Jaime and Ramiro of La Cacita Mexicana fame. They are slowly trying to expand people's ideas of what Mexican food is. They do a really great job with what is on the menu. Also the bar is great.

Bucato - any visits since Chef Funke's sudden departure?

We tried to go last night but they wouldn't take a reservation for 12 people. I've never been so I don't know if they have a way to accommodate a group that big.

Yes, it's such a traumatic experience disagreeing with my wife that I didn't capitalize SOFT SHELL CRABS. or in reality I was dictating to my IPhone cause I'm lazy.

I'm going to disagree with my wife. Since it's soft shell crab season, I think we should go for that.

Is Surfas going away?

They may have, but I'm there frequently for weekend lunch runs to the cafe and I hadn't noticed it.

Is Surfas going away?

It'll move when it's lease runs out in 2 years.

No Corkage on Westside

Sorry. When I checked Yelp it said 10 pm but that was referring to Friday and Saturday nights when they are open that late.

No Corkage on Westside

Del Rey Kitchen meets all of your criteria. 12740 Culver Blvd, Ste B, Los Angeles, CA 90066

Lunch in Venice area....?

There is Casual and then there's El Huarique. I agree it's great, but I will give a heads up to the OP: it's a literal hole in the wall with no seating. Get you order and head out to the Beach and Enjoy!

Fish Tacos between LAX and Marina del Ray?

I vent to Cerveteca in Culver City & had their seafood Tacos. The Baja Fish was good. I wish they would let the I wish they would let the fish cool a bit more before assembly to retain it's crispness. However, I like it better than TPC but I may be in a minority here. They have a garlic Sautéed shrimp who was very good and almost worth the $4.25 they charge for it. finally I had their grilled Salmon Taco which was good. They make their tortillas which is a plus and their three salsas are tasty. The also supposedly have a location in Venice but I've never been. And the Culver City place is open til 2 am on weekends for that late night munchie run.

Early Sunday dinner in Culver City (or nearby)?

Ford's shut down months ago. Ben moved the restaurant to DTLA. There will be a new iteration of Akasha in the spot soon.

Is Surfas going away?

"While the developer secures entitlements for the planned property........."

Is Surfas going away?

According to the Culver City Crossroads The folks at Surfas have sold the land where the store and cafe are for $16 Million. They will stay in the location until plans are drawn up and permits are acquired. What is left unsaid is what will happen when construction happens. Anyone have further info?

Orleans and York DTLA!

I think they rightly keep it on the side for their Fried Po-Boys, to ensure its crispness for longer, which is why Dommy!'s Grilled version had it included already.

Orleans and York DTLA!

No, it's at:
333 S Spring St.

"The "crack" sauce?? Is that their hot sauce, which I really liked?"


Need rec for lunch near USC

I live in the neighborhood and there isn't a nice place for graduation lunch. The one place I might suggest Bacaro LA isn't open for lunch. 'SC isn't all that far from DTLA. And would expand your search there.

If you don't mind really casual, you may try the Mercado de Paloma which is just across the freeway from campus. The best recommendation in there is for Chichen Itza which is a Yucatecan restaurant.

If you are looking for a great place near campus to have a cup of coffee and relax, Ignatius Cafe is located in a Victorian house surrounded by hedges. It's run by a Korean Catholic Church and they roast their own beans.
