I'll be making my first journey to L.A. in a couple of weeks and would love to hear where the locals would take me if I knew anyone there. Will be with my GF and are looking for the following type places for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. We will have a car and be moving all around hitting the touristy spots so all areas are appreciated. We are not picky, enjoy ethnic foods and are also not afraid of those sketchy from the outside places as long as the food is good.
Where would you go?
1 or 2 nice (under $100 a person w/o alcohol) restaurants for Dinner - Good steak with other good options preferable
The great breakfast places that never make the guide books that all the locals know about.
Great lunch spot with quality people watching
Anything else that will put a smile on this foodie's face
Thanks in advance for all replys
