I have some family friends coming to town in a couple of weeks and they'll be staying in LA for a day or two at the beginning and end of their trip. I've been tasked to make a list of LA eats and I'm mixed about what to suggest.
What are the best LA eats that really give an out of towner a taste of LA? I think their budget ranges from $ - $$$$ so anything goes. And I'm not sure what cuisines they enjoy or if they'll try anything so I want to be able to suggest a bunch of places.
Try to keep the suggestions to the Hollywood/Santa Monica/Malibu areas (possibly Koreatown & Downtown as well). They're staying at the Standard in Hollywood. I should probably add a good Mexican and Korean place as well. Just starting the list but so far I have...
Pink's (touristy I know, but for someone from the UK I'm sure an American hot dog would be interesting)
