La Cieniga and Olympic - Local Eats

I just got a place near La Cieniga and Olympic, and am interested in finding some new local restaurants.

I have lived in LA most of my life, and know there are tons of great restaurants within driving distance, but I'm more curious about the ones in my immediate neighborhood. I'm not looking for the cream of Los Angeles - just some satisfying local spots.

I know about Nicks for breakfast, and Versailles, and Naraya on Robertson... but that's about it.

Enlighten me!

      Try Cafe Carrera on La Cienega just South of Wilshire. Fabulous. Try the pizza.

    2. Tokyo Table is up the street. Reasonable ;prices for eclectic asian food.

      1. I office in the area. RJ's barbecue is a bit south of you, on La Cienega, and the best in the area. Cafe Rome on Robertson is great. Of course, there is Gelato on Robertson..

        1. Hoagies & Wings is just below you. The wings are good, the hoagies just so-so, and they deliver.

          1. i'd walk over to fairfax and feast myself silly on ethiopian food.
            my two favorites are:
            rahel (vegetarian only, they serve an ayce lunch on weekdays),
            meals by genet (closed on mon. and tues. and only open for dinners).
