Highlights include the Campanile on LaBrea, created by the founder of the LaBrea Bakery, Langer's for that old-fashioned corned beef on rye, and Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles for that down home touch. Larchmont is a bit out of our area, not quite to Hollywood, but we wanted to add Le Pain Quotidien and Cafe Gratitude.

LA Magazine: "Highlights of the pan-Latin menu are Salvadoran: Bean and cheese pupusas are lovely melty morsels. The fans who gather to cheer their teams snack on fried yucca root, brittle and earthy, or thin bistec covered in onions. All are consumed with big frosty bottles of Regia beer."
