This month's late-night dining was not as popular as I'd hoped. Perhaps we need to keep the season in mind, as the chill probably kept some of our 24-hour adventurers inside.
We all know the drill by now, but in case you do not: The idea is this -- choose a 'Dish of the Month' for the LA area and then collectively try as many versions of this dish as possible during the month reporting back with details and photos. It's great to talk about places you've been in the past, but the idea is to explore new places and make new discoveries.
The dish that gets chosen might be something very specific (chili fries) but might also be more of a dish category (potatoes). It's up to everyone here, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best and most interesting versions!
Anyway, this is the nomination thread for December 2014 …you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread, it will be one vote per user. I will try to follow sentiment, but I'm going to exercise discretion and not sweat choosing nominees for the voting thread.
To nominate a dish, please (please!) post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. This thread will be open until I go to bed on November 26th.
