Oh really the work can be shoddy? Interesting. I'm a bit surprised as it seems they hold themselves out to be high quality and all that. I've bee in the shop just to browse the first time I was out eating on Sawtelle and yeah the prices seem a bit much. They recently moved a bit north though up to the corner of SaMo Blvd. and something.

Hadn't realized that. Beverly or Melrose or wherever they were to West Adams is a significant move in terms of convenience, etc. (although I'd guess commercial rents are much better).

See, I hate driving into Hollywood because of the traffic, so I find W. Adams to be more convenient. It's not a bad space they have over there either. I'm expecting that neighborhood to change a lot over the next few years too. I'm way out in the sticks of Mt. Washington (though Obama is over here today fucking up the traffic) so maybe that colors my opinion.

Heard that. I didn't mean to suggest it's necessarily less or more convenient (which of course depends on where you are coming from), just that a move to an entirely different part of town seems fairly significant for a small business.
And I agree re West Adams. Close friends live there, having beautully restored a couple of those great Craftsman houses there. I'm a fan of the neighborhood (almost bought a place there some years back), and it has been gaining services, and the like.

Rail Car Fine Goods in Montebello if you don't mind the drive.

We're having a Put This On sample sale today, starting at ten. Right on MacArthur Park in the American Cement Building. Lots of pocket squares, plus a bunch of vintage accessories, some fabric and records, and a few other things. Plus some beer, the best view of LA you'll ever see, and my mom's gonna be there. All the details are here.

Not sure if I can make it to the sale but I love that building.

Well I'm going to share this… how good the happy hour is at SaMo Seafood. But if next time I go in there all the seats are taken up by well dressed dudes I'm going to regret it! happy.gif

Food recs for an NYC tourist in LA/socal? Going for labor day weekend. Preferably places/types of food I can't already get in NY tri-state (which already has good ramen, burgers, korean etc.)

I've been to In and Out and Kang Ho Dong Baekjong but besides that I haven't done like, much gastrotourism. Looking for mid/low range places though one nicer night ($100 pp) with the girlfriend is also something i'd like to do. Besides Mexican and Korean is there a cuisine that LA does particularly well?

Jitlada in east Hollywood for Thai.

The San Gabriel Valley for various sorts of Chinese cuisine.

Lots of good sushi options.

In the South Bay (largely in and around Gardena) you can find excellent Indian and Japanese.

Ethiopian in the Fairfax district.

You might try to run down one of Jonathan Gold's "Top 100" or whatever lists. He has really carved out a niche for finding excellent, often very affordable places serving authentic versions of the cuisine of recent immigrant communities.

Went to Lukshon for dinner tonight (second time there, although it's been several years). Love the place--not everything is uniformly great, but overall, it's the kind of food that I want to eat all the time.
