Pardon if you're anti-hollywood, but has anyone been to animal (restaurant) on fairfax? Heard good things about it.

Yeah, it's awesome. Their menu changes often, but I had the foie gras on a biscuit with maple gravy and it was crazy,

spice table is also really good. not as good for lunch as dinner (just sandwiches), and it is at the far end of little tokyo from where you'll be.
of course, another option would be grand central market. go to tacos a tumbra.

I went to Langer's and got the #19 and wasn't impressed. I'm thinking I ordered wrong, or somehow just got a bad sandwich. I can't imagine this many people are wrong. Is there a special way to order? Do I need to give them a second shot? Is it worth the hype?

i'm not a big pastrami guy, but langer's pastrami is one of the best pieces of meat i've ever eaten. i have heard that people have been disappointed in it ... i think the deal is that they used to ONLY serve hand-sliced. now they serve machine-sliced, unless requested. this actually happened to me once ... i ordered the sandwich and it came obviously machine-sliced (thin, uniform slices). I said something about it and the waitress said that that was the new improved way they were doing it. i complained and they brought me back a hand-sliced (thicker, irregular slices). it was heaven. someplace like langer's, get the simplest pastrami sandwich you can. don't gunk it up.

ended up at starry kitchen. it was ok...interesting southeast asian rice bowl.......something different, didn't blow me away, more casual than i imagined. the owner of the place drops the F-bomb alot when talking to customers. foo.gif

i liked that little plaza though. lots of wimmens in business suits.

Katz pastrami itself is amazing, better than langer's. As a sandwich overall, I may like langer's more because the bread and russian dressing makes a difference.

Apolis Activism came out with a Venice, CA market bag. I'll probably be getting one. they're having a launch next Friday at First Friday at Milkmade.

must eat. reservations are hard, go when it opens and snag a bar table if you can handle bacon/foie/fried smackdown at 5pm

I think this place is pretty good as well. I had some kind of really good rustic tuna sandwich. I still haven't actually eaten at the restaurant, but I plan on it.

I like the DogTown dogs truck that hangs out at Abbot Kinney. They have this great hot dog with fennel slaw and whole grain mustard. I always have them put a bunch of raw chopped jalepenos on it and it's really good. They also give you tater tots with your dog.
