    I'm late to the party, but try Alimento or Cliff's Edge in Silverlake. Night + Market Song is also great. Probably one of the more popular spots in LA recently.

    Agree with Alimento. Excellent spot, very low key, but they do everything so well. Best Fried Chicken sandwich ever by the way.

    BOOM! Alimento #1. They call it a Chicken Milanese Sandwich, don't really get the Italian spin on it but it is so fucking good. Been there twice, each time we have ordered two of them.

    Desserts at Alimento are ehhhh, nothing special. Go across the street to Milk for some bomb dessert.

    I've had sog a few times love it. Second place is bandera in newport, not sure if brentwood has it but it's pretty damn good. Only problem is it's sort of on a roll and they cut it into 3 pieces. Also it has cheese which I don't generally prefer on fried chicken but it somehow works. The sog is better though and when I have the alimento I will report back, can't wait. Free range I heard is mostly looks and lacks some flavor.

    Bird N Hand on Fairfax was so f'ing good. One of the best chicken sandwiches I've ever had (even coming GA where we eat fried chicken 3 meals a day). I'm pissed they closed, although it was kind of hard to ever find them open even before they closed. I was talking to the lady that ran it one time though, and got the feeling their main focus was catering down the street at CBS and the restaurant was more of a side gig.

    I had the Grilled Chicken 'N Brie sandwich at Joe's Cafe in Granada Hills, and it was amazing. An added bonus is that they serve Intelligentsia Coffee. Great little place:

    Good intel, but I trust you're not under the impression that a grilled chicken sandwich has anything to do with a fried chicken sammie. :cheers:

    Are there other shops in LA along similar lines to RRL, Tradesman, Self Edge, and Mr. Freedom? Are there any shops that carry The Real McCoy stuff? Or Velva Sheen?

    I don't think anyone carries Real McCoy's in LA though I've heard rumblings of them thinking about an LA flagship. Steven Alan has Velva Sheen.

    Counter-intuitively you can probably do better than that in Beverly Hills.

    I hate to admit I like this place…. mostly because the head chef/owner used to be a neighbor of mine and he's pretty much a massive dickbag. The one on Sawtelle is always packed with dumb chix and hipsters, but I'll do a burger there once or twice a year.

    The fairfax location is so much better. The pastrami was fucking great too, afraid I will have to frequent that place.

    They've made it pretty easy lately with multiple locations (DTLA, Fairfax, Sawtelle, and supposedly Santa Monica in the future).
