There are definitely different kinds of foodies. There are those who keep on top of every new restaurant that opens in LA -- who know the chef and the specialty wine choice at each. Then there are those of us that prefer finding hole-in-the-wall mom & pop restaurants that serve a rich, marrow-filled soup in some dark nook of k-town. We're in the latter group, and taking a friend in the former group out for a birthday dinner tomorrow night (so weeks-in-advance places like Mozza are out).
Any suggestions on where to go? Fancy is ok, but not just for the sake of fanciness -- I'd like the food to reflect the price. We're all mid-city, so central LA would be best.
Thanks for the tips Chowhounders!
