I usually go to Floyds in West LA on Santa Monica Blvd near Barrington.
Best barbershop you're going to get: http://www.baxterfinley.com/
La Cienega next to Craft.
Little Tokyo in downtown.
seconded. never liked a haircut until i started going there.
I think i'll get my next haircut there. its a bit far from me, I like to just pop in to a place to get a cut. Big fan of Baxter products.
+1 I've been cutting my hair with Chrissy for years. Although I recommend her, I don't you would go wrong with the other guys either. If you do go, ask for Chrissy.
$40 is too much for a monthly haircut.
Haven't had Comme Ca but all of the people I've talked to who had both RC/Comme Ca would quickly choose Rustic.
As far as visiting SM, If I was from out of town I'd just go enjoy the beach and walk around.
Going to Taco Asylum in Costa Mesa today, a new restaurant from the owners of Haven. Menu looks interesting: http://www.tacoasylum.com/
You buy SF level clothing and you can't pay $40 for a haircut? Are you serious?
Don't bother with Taco Asylum...the fillings are OK, but when I ate there the tortillas on all the tacos I ordered were flour. I'm a purist when it comes to corn tortillas and tacos. Ate there once, was totally unimpressed, and will not return. My thought were: "Well, their intentions are good..."
..or $6 for a taco.
^ Ah, that's disappointing. I had reasonable hopes for it too, sounds like a taco version of No. 7 Subs which I enjoyed a lot.
Men's hair is relatively easy to cut and most places can do exactly what I want. I used to go to a place in Huntington Beach that did finished with a hot towel and straight-razor shave around the neck and the experience is definitely nice. Marginal benefit isn't worth the cost to me. (And I've paid $30 for a pencil and thought that was completely worth it)
Of course, my opinion may change if I have an exceptional hair cut somewhere.
Doing the 9-course tasting menu at Providence in a few weeks.
I really wanted taco asylum to be good as well but the flour tortillas really ruin it. The grease from the filling cause the tortillas to become almost chalky after a few minutes and totally ruin the whole thing, especially when the grease just spills out all over the table etc. The octopus was really good too, oh well.
Great sandwiches at that place. Lacking in atmosphere but who cares?
IMO bay cities is alright, but i dont think it lived up to the hype..
Its good. Very tough bread!
Speaking of which, am I the only person in Los Angeles who is totally unimpressed by Langer's? Maybe I just got bad sandwich, I don't know...
