Hollywood Hills Restaurant - Best Corned Beef Hash

Tom Armitage | Mar 22, 2004 02:32 PM

Today I decided to indulge my passion for what I considered to be the best corned beef hash in Los Angeles (see link below to my previous post). Alas, when I arrived at the former site of the Hollywood Hills Restaurant on Vermont Ave., it was shuttered and closed. I don’t know when it closed because it had been quite a while since I last ate there, but on my previous visits, there weren’t many customers, and the service ranged from bad to atrocious. The restaurant never seemed to survive the name change (it used to be called the Hollywood Hills Coffee Shop), location change (it used to be located in a Best Western Motel on Franklin and Argyle), and ambience change (from a classic coffee shop with a long counter and stools, to a cavernous and nondescript square room). Does anyone know when the restaurant closed, and whether the owner, Susan Fine Moore, has plans to open a restaurant elsewhere? Her efforts to breathe life into the Hollywood Hills Restaurant included opening a dinner venue, Michael’s Room, next door. I’m guessing that despite her efforts to find a profitable combination for her new location, nothing worked well enough to keep the place alive. Alas. This sad turn of events makes timely a question I posed on this Chowhound board more than four years ago: Where’s the best corned beef hash in Los Angeles?
