ok, here's where I ate this week. there's a lot here, be forewarned.
bar marmont - my vote for the best cheeseburger and fries in LA
les deux cafes - ok food but stunning ambiance, great date place
ammo - sunday brunch. pleasant place, but not standout. good for something light.
mimosa - pleasant french bistro, i'd go back. free dessert wine is a nice touch.
soot bull jeep - jonathan gold's favorite korean bbq in a town with more korean bbq's per capita than anywhere else on earth. the real mesquite grills are impressive, and kind of dangerous. this is a great place, better for lunch when it's less crowded
buffalo club - pleasant patio, not quite as nice as les deux cafe, but even more of a scene. many, many beautiful people. i found the prices outlandishly high for food that was pretty mediocre
jozu - california/japanoise some parts of the meal really stood out (great vegetable spring rolls, excellent plum tart) others were disappointing (pork tenderloin). a very relaxing place though.
that's about enough for one week, wouldn't you say?
