I am coming back to LA for a long weekend next weekend with my gf, and used to live there, but moved away (DC/CHI/SF) and haven't really been back since. I was a religious CH follower (occasional poster), and took lots of notes, so I have a big list, but it's now old. I definitely want to go to a couple old favorites like Tacos Leo (al pastor), Langer's (pastrami), and was thinking maybe Father's Office (burger - not looking to start anything). I'll be on the westside (Venice), and the last day+ on the EAST side (Whittier) and will have a car. If there's a new amazing burger spot, lmk (I'm looking to see if there's one that can unseat Au Cheval in Chicago). Would be good if there was a rec. that would be good for dinner with a group of friends (~6-8) in their mid-30s for Fri night that would be nearby some good bars.
