    Had a couple of decent juleps recently at Taix (Sunset just E of Alvarado). Not a drive-across-town kind of place; the food is hit or miss, but it's a short walk for me and I'm glad it's there.

      does it have a bar so i can knock down a few drinks before the dodger games. that does sound like a decent plan, if i don't have to suffer through the 1920s American version of French cuisine (this place makes Musso's look gourmet).

          Heh. Most of the food at Taix could quite plausibly be served at Musso's for ten or so dollars more a plate. Musso's has a much longer menu, though.

        I really like the sazeracs at Seven Grand Whiskey Bar in downtown LA--having never tasted one in New Orleans though, I can't vouch for authenticity. An added benefit of Seven Grand is the ridiculously long list of whiskeys/ryes/bourbons/scotchs.

          Yes, but mostly the places are in New Orleans. I know The Ivy does a good mint julep. Bet they could also come up with something like the others. Lots of places will do a julep, but really good places won't make one unless they have fresh mint. You forgot to mention daiquiris and whiskey sours.
