i need a patio, wings and non craft beers in the realms of Silver Lake/Los Feliz Adjacent

Thats right. On mondays they have a dozen wings and a pitcher of beer for $18, although the banner right outside says $17. Get there early cause this place gets packed

Is Guisados really that great?

It really isn't.

Any Mexican restaurants that serve Goat? (Glendale/Burbank)

Not any where near the area you're asking about. Birrieria Tlatepaque in south LA on Florence. You can order a whole roasted goat's head and it comes with freshly made tortillas when you place your order and its served with all the fixins. The birria is no joke either.

Farewell to my favorite Chili Cheeseburger, Tommy's on Lincoln to close

No. They don't. Over priced over hyped fast food.

Bar in Silver Lake for a birthday party!

Thirsty Crow, especially if you guys are into whisky, the place is small, they do have an outdoor smoking patio, i would call.

Malo, definitely has room, pretty good food in case anyone gets hungry and parking!

El Caserio…it's a restaurant…the bar is big enough to accomodate your group, they have very good food, parking, adjacent to 101 fwy, service was not all that, i would call.

Smog Cutter…maybe not, looked good on film, not the same in person, no matter how many times you visit.

4100 Bar, plenty of bar, good music/videos, some parking, you can get an oil change across the street while you're sippin'

Party on.

Pickle Bills

I recently had the prime rib dip at Northwoods Inn in la mirada. It had grilled onions and swiss cheese…it was heavenly

Hip. Inexpensive. Quiet.

Hyperion Public. They have a restaurant and to the back, up the stairs, the bar, where food is served as well. Parking is a commodity in that area but they have off-street parking. Staff is friendly and they even remember your name, which is rare at hip spots

Favorite Restaurants West of Downtown

Blue C Sushi in hollywood was a major surprise. This place is a conveyor sushi spot. Conveyor sushi is not typically very good but this really is the exception. They have some serious talent handling food there. Try to sit by the conveyor so that you may ask the chefs for of the menu dishes. Joel and Warren work their magic with the ingredients. The best fish tacos i have ever had

Special event near Marina Del Rey

Check out Paiche, peruvian-japanese plates, a great experience ,or Settebello across the street, this is a pizza place, they have a nice patio with a cozy fireplace. Both have plenty of space for your party

What's your LEAST favorite restaurant in LA ? (excepting of course for chains).

"If you're stupid enough to ask it, your wallet is going to get punished" huh???

More like, if you're stupid enough to pay a premium for third class meals your wallet is gonna punish you.

This place is a perfect sad example of supply and demand.

Non Soy, Grain Eggs ?

They get a "protection act" and we get GMO's.

Makes me want to get my own egg laying hen.

Best Nachos?

We didn't have that burrito. It was a chimichanga and a burrito, both carne asada, and both way too salty. We also over heard another table mention the high blood pressure coming on due to the salty food. Must've been having an off night. And i agree with you on the salt variable. I have friends who add salt to their food as if were going out of style.

Best Nachos?

damn. We were at Don Antonios a couple of weeks ago. Didn't have nachos, but maybe we should've. Our main courses were so salty

Date Night? DTLA, Echo Park, Silver Lake, Eagle Rock, etc.

Then it appears that your only dilemma is price. DT has so many nice places. So why not explore a spot that no has recommended on this thread and get back to us with your experience.

Any Reports on Colonia Taco Lounge?

Hopefully it's better than guisados and not just cause they have beer.

Possible to hire a Mexican fruit cart vendor for a party?

same difference. I'm more than sure that the fruit being sold from those carts is not all from Mexico. ;{

The Sunday brunch is damn good as well. Omelets, tacos, pancakes and an assortment of other dishes including fish and shrimp ceviche, and they also offer all you can drink draft beers and a hand full of cocktails...

HAAAAH. Their beer selection good? Yup, maybe five years ago. It's 2013, you can throw a beer can and hit a good beer selection with your eyes closed.

Help me find pizza!

You're asking for NY pie in LA. Like you said "it ain't" NY, and that's cause you ain't there. It's like looking for authentic Italian food some where other than Italy. I say enjoy the many interpretations of pizza the west coast has to offer and when you want NY pizza, go to NY.

Is There Such a Thing as an Openly Gay Friendly Chinese Restaurant in Chinatown/SGV?

in 2013, in the Los Angeles area, it will be harder to find the opposite.

i believe that any inappropriate language or activity would then void your agreement anywhere in the country.

Possible to hire a Mexican fruit cart vendor for a party?

i would think that just about any of the street vendors set up in the city will accommodate you with your party needs.

i just don't think that all fruit stand vendors are mexican though.
