Hi LA Chowhounds,
I'm from San Francisco and visiting a friend who lives in Downtown LA (forgot the neighborhood, but somewhere near The Gorbals and The Varnish), and I can't wait to visit some of LA's food institutions. I'll eat just about anything. What's worth visiting? A specific Roscoe's Chicken location? The Original Pantry Café? Langer's for Pastrami? A certain dog at Pink's? I'd love to hear any of your thoughts. I'm headed to downtown LA this Friday.
Also, does anybody know if it's doable to try to get into the The Varnish on a Friday night? We'll be celebrating a friend's passing of the bar.
Thanks everyone in advance!
