i just moved to willoughby at highland. what are some good places to eat around here?
i went to red pearl kitchen and it was great. i usually eat at m cafe.
Mozza is good for a late night meal. Decently Priced for food and service.
Fast Casual is the standard California Chicken Cafe. (Melrose east of La Brea)
Lala's Argentine on Melrose (west of La Brea)
The Villiage Idiot - good British Pub on Melrose at Martel
Ammo is great for Sunday Brunch - a little pricey but worth the splurge
Lucy's Adobe Mexican Food on Melrose right across from Paramount Studios
Hope that helps a little...
M Cafe is great. The Dive (used to be Highland Grounds) is surprisingly good and cheap. Ammo, yes. Angelini Osteria is on Beverly, when you really want to splurge and go just a little farther outside the boundaries. And Doughboys is opening soon.
Other worthy candidates on Beverly and 3rd Street west of La Brea.
Cobras and Matadors
And all of Farmer's Market.
This is all without going any further east than Fairfax.
For great Mexican try Antonios - located right on Melrose and Vista.
I usually order the chicken and shrimp fajitas ...
It's amusing that no one thought of recommending Mozza, which is almost on the corner of Highland and Melrose - and that's with enough board chatter about it to sink Mario Batali.
Whoops, now I see the first person who replied did say Mozza as their very first rec. My eye's were just checked two hours ago and they passed with flying colors, but I may go somewhere for a second opinion.
