Anything near Runyon Canyon?
I'm visiting my girlfriend who just moved near Runyon Canyon at the end of LaBrea. I'm only familiar with the Westside where I love places like The Border Cafe, Killer Shrimp (rip), Figtree Cafe, Broadway Deli for bfkt., Versaille Cuban, etc.
Can anyone recommend places close-by that aren't just for "special occasions" price/attitude wise. We like almost any cuisine except Korean or Sushi.
I've read about Los Feliz and Silverlake but hoping to find something closer, or
if not closer, than in another direction. Are there any small joints nestled in the hills? Or places that in Bklyn we might consider our regular fixture in the nabe. thx in advance!
I go with my dogs there every week and they woof for in n out on sunset east of la brea. animal style please. ill still take in n out burgers over many sit down restaurants even tho my terriers won't touch their fries either.
I haven't been to any of these, but here are some nearby places I would try if I lived there:
- 25 Degrees (burgers, open 24 hours)
- Robert's Russian Cuisine
- Bossa Nova (Brazillian, open until 4 am daily)
They should be all within walking distance.
Bossa Nova also delivers.
Note that 25 Degrees and Bossa Nova have their detractors on this board, but the reviews seems to be generally positive.

one of my favorite places to go after Runyon is the Whole Foods salad bar at Fairfax and Santa Monica... i know it sounds dull, but there's so much there, and so many healthy options.
little drive down la brea there's Sante La Brea
Aroma on Sunset
Solar de Cahuenga at Franklin and Cahuenga
Lucky Devil's down Hollywood
101 Coffee Shop
Magnolia or Bowery
Just a mile or two east on Franklin and then up Beachwood to Hollywoodland is the Village Coffee shop, a funky, laid back industry hangout with good breakfasts and lunches.
