L.A. is BRIMMING with people "new to L.A." and a lot of us are on our own.
I have friends here who might not necessarily be up for eating out as often as I like to, which is a LOT! So I often find myself looking for a place to contentedly eat alone, and it's not always an easy search for a new transplant from "back East".
I'd love to hear some of your recommendations for great places to dine solo. Bonus points for friendly bar/counter dining, unpretentiousness, and diversity!
Thanks in advance!
