Restaurants/Food that were only in NY and now in LA

ereeck | Feb 19, 2014 12:57 PM

Hey all, I recently came back from New York and loved the food there. I have been scrambling to find some formerly "New York" or "East Coast" only restaurants/foods that are located in (or near) the great city of Angels! Mind you, I'm not looking for exact parallels (i.e. there obviously won't be a 53rd/6th halal cart in L.A. as far as I know), but something very very close. Here are some of my finds:

1) Grimaldi's Coal Brick-Oven Pizzeria (El Segundo)
2) Chicken and Rice (Holywood). Not 53rd/6th, but we have chicken and rice now!
3) Rita's (Santa Monica)
4) cronuts (various locations in L.A.)

I would like to add to this list!

Rita's Ice Culver City,
Rita's Italian Ice,
Grimaldi's Pizzeria
