I'm planning a weekend trip to LA to see some of the sights I normally don't get to. My knowledge of LA is mostly nightlife, Hollywood and Highland center, and some parts of Hollywood. Need some help on food, I have Saturday planned but need dinner recs for Friday and Sunday. No Mexican, Vietnamese, or Korean as we have plenty in OC. What's quintessentially LA (but not tourist kitschy like Pink's - I've been there)? Not looking to spend more than $50 or so total for dinner for 2 so that rules out the higher end stuff. Here's my list so far, what am I missing?
Coffee and AM pastries at Little Next Door
