Burgers Never Say Die

image280

 This hidden, Sunday's only burger "spot" is worth all the secrecy.  Just a guy grilling up exceptional burgers out of his backyard, you need to request permission to eat one of these delicious burgers.  2 chubby thumbs up. 

Must Eat: As many of these burgers as you can


Highs:  $5 burgers worth $10, plus connect 4 to play while you eat


Lows:   Get there early because once the meat is done they are sold out!

 The queen of bread opened this meat-centric restaurant with my least favorite celeb chef Mario Batali- but what we have here is fantastic meat, bread, wine and octopus. 1 1/2 chubby thumbs up 


Must Eat:  Bread with beef drippings, focaccia di Recco


Highs:  It is a meat lovers paradise


Lows:  Don't forget your cholesterol medicine 

Pizzeria Mozza

 Another Nancy Silverton restaurant, this pizza place isn't quite as good as people will lead you to believe.  Don't get wrapped up in the celeb chef hype- there are better pizzas around.  1 chubby thumb up 


Must Eat: White pizza


Highs:  Fennel sausage pizzas are always a plus


Lows:   Just doesn't live up to the hype. 

Public Kitchen and Bar

 Another LA restaurant that sacrifices food because it is a great place to people watch.  Located at the Hollywood Roosevelt, the food is fair and the ambiance is solid- maybe you'll get to see Channing Tatum.  1 chubby thumb up


 Must Eat: Pork chop


Highs:  Great cocktails, cool LA vibe


Lows:  The food is above average but it is missing something.

 Creativity through the roof.  This is the closest restaurant to a Momofuku Ko/Brooklyn Fare you can find in LA.  From start to finish the food is outstanding, inspired and tasty.  Plus they play old school hip hop all night.   

Must Eat: Everything


Highs:  Everything is awesome


Lows:   Reservation system is a pain in the ass
