I know I'll get a lot of flack for this, that I should just forget about the past and explore more and more new things, which I agree ... but sometimes a food/bar hangout is so comforting you just gotta know if there's something like it!
Any Chicagoans in Los Angeles who know a place like the Handle Bar?
It is an easy-going diner-type restaurant and bar with a great patio, draft selection, margaritas, and healthy/vegan offerings – faux-chicken wraps, chili cheese fries, seitan burgers, southern greens (plus a bicycle-enthusiast clientele).
I loved being there and felt like I could hang for hours without spending too much. Any ideas for a replacement spot in LA?
Again, sorry! I'm ashamed I'm even looking for it!
