I'm visiting my girlfriend who just moved near Runyon Canyon at the end of LaBrea. I'm only familiar with the Westside where I love places like The Border Cafe, Killer Shrimp (rip), Figtree Cafe, Broadway Deli for bfkt., Versaille Cuban, etc.
Can anyone recommend places close-by that aren't just for "special occasions" price/attitude wise. We like almost any cuisine except Korean or Sushi.
I've read about Los Feliz and Silverlake but hoping to find something closer, or
if not closer, than in another direction. Are there any small joints nestled in the hills? Or places that in Bklyn we might consider our regular fixture in the nabe. thx in advance!
