I love the webblog http://latimemachines.com. The author of that site has done a sterling job of bringing many of LA's great old watering holes and restaurants to a wider audience, as well as catalogueing the fast-disappearing heritage of this tear-out-and-build -over metropolis. (If you haven't logged on, you gotta have a look). As an ex-resident Angelino, it almost brings tears to my eyes. But what he doesn't cover is which ones have decent (or, hopefully, very good) food. Any recommendations of which of these old-timers is actually worth visiting for the food as well? When I come back in June I'd like to get a fix of old LA nostalgia.
