Recs near Hollywood Boulevard

Coming on business in a month or so. After Musso and Frank's, where should I eat in Hollywood. I won't have a car.

    1. re: chica

      I'll be staying at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel on Highland above Hollywood Blvd.

    2. Not having a car in Hollywood is not a problem at all, because the Red Line subway runs down Hollywood Blvd.

      Hollywood is also rich in great restaurants. Here are my recs, depending on what you want:

      Soul Food:

      Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles
      Get the chicken and waffles (duh!). The waffles are amazing.

      Thai: Ruen Pair

      Amazing thai food in the heart of thai town. I like the papaya salad, shrimp cakes, pad thai, etc. I also hear they do excellent fried morning glories, by have not tried them. It's really yummy, cheap, and closes very late (like 4am).


      Zankou: Get shawerma sandwiches or some chicken with the fluffy white garlic paste from heaven. It's delicious.

      If you don't mind walking a little...

      close to the corner of Sunset blvd and la brea, there is Mashti Malones ice cream, which makes incredible, exotic ice creams (check out the thread on them currently active)
