I live in NYC most of the year but I am here for a while and looking for some recs. First of all, I love almost every Thai and taco rec I have found on this board. Even the Thai you guys consider middle of the road has really blown me away. We just don't have real papaya salad in NYC (or at least not usually).
Here's what I'm looking for:
--New or innovative restaurants in Silverlake/Los Feliz. Looking for places that seem to care about their food more than the scene.
--A 'farm to table' place showcasing local and sustainably raised meats and produce
--Along the same lines, a farmer's market with vendors selling grass fed beef or heritage pork
--A bar with very well made cocktails and maybe some small plates
Thanks in advance for all your help!
