  1. Blairs on Rowena & Silverlake- simple but delicious food - serves both breakfast & lunch - salads, panini -newly opened during day after being a happening night spot for years. (Ex-chef Water Grill) Dustys on Sunset/Descanso- salads, pastas, crepes - good but not great. Nice atmosphere.

    1. La Buca - Very good Italian on Melrose at Wilton
      Marouch - Good Lebanese on Santa Monica and Normandie
      Grub - American food on Seward, south of Santa Monica
      Lucky Devil's - American food on Hollywood, at Whitley (get the pecan shake)
      Magnolia - American food on Sunset, east of Vine
      Square One - American food on Fountain, west of Vermont
      Pshaw's - Creole food on Sunset & Gower (this place is not always open, but very good)

      I like all these places. If any of them interest you, do a search. There has been a lot written about each of them.
