I was born in LA but moved away about 13 years ago - so I'm completely out of the loop as to what still exists and what has been bulldozed to make way for strip malls.
This Christmas I'll be visiting LA and I've set myself a mission: TO DISCOVER OLD LOS ANGELES
This would include dining in some of the old classics. I remember as a little girl being taken to the Tic Tock by my grandmother and her mah jong playing friends. I also remember being taken for a special meal at Chason's. I hear that they are both gone now - sadly. I understand that Musso and Frank's is still there, as is the Formosa (though I hear that the Formosa is not a place to go to eat). Does anyone else know what is in existance? I'm not expecting culinary genius, just comfort food.
And on that note, does anyone know if there's anything worthwhile happening in LA over new years eve? Or is asking that a complete joke in itself? Any suggestions for unique or even good experiences for that night?
