Los Angeles restaurant "characters"

The post about "unusual" dining experiences got me thinking: who, for good or bad, are/were the true CHARACTERS of Los Angeles food and restaurants? I'm talkin' "the Soup Nazi", the late lamented Edsel Ford Fong of Sam Wo in San Francisco, Eddie of Eddie's on Law in New Orleans, etc. names that will live in people's memories once they've actually eaten at a place, even once, and they'll tell their grandkids, people who are such characters that the restaurant is unimaginable without them....
