Pico Robertson..did my gf move us to no man's land?

Thx for the suggestions on my last post for bars around here..Is there even a young bar crowd in this Pico Robertson neighborhood?Clearly a heavy Jewish population with all of the Kosher restaurants ..seems like not many spots to go out for a beer..think my gf has talked me into moving to no man's land but she swears there are a ton of young people living around here??????

  1. I think everyone is just up Fairfax a bit at Golden State, the Kibitz Room, Lola's and the Dime.

    1. yes that exact area is no mans land. but good news is you are within 15 minutes to all the good spots. culver city is 5 minutes away..they have Backstage bar a lot of other spots along that main street. you are close to fairfax/3rd street area thats full of are right smack in the middle of LA.

      1. I live down the street from you on La Cienega. You are in prime real estate, you can really get to any point in LA in an LA minute. Olympic and pico can get you to the westside, culver city is just down the street on Roberston.Tons of bars and places to eat. Farmers market is a 10 minute bike ride away. hollywood is a cab ride away. You have a great music venue in the mint down the street. La Brea is busy, you can walk to il gellato on robertson for some cheap eats -- dont fret - just go searching.

          Yeah I know what you're talking about with a no man's land. There's a place down the road about Robertson/Pico, it used to be called "The Joint" but it's changed names, I think you can get a beer there in the evening, and they have music. For food, check out Got Kosher, they have awesome BBQ on Sunday. Jeff's Sausage Factory is pretty good. I love Natalie Thai, and around the corner is Chef Ming's Kitchen (Olympic and Doheney) which is super good take out Chinese (they cook it all from scratch)

            I LOVE Chef Ming's on Olympic Blvd. in Beverly Hills! I've been getting take-away or delivery from them for years. It's a tiny place in a strip mall, so there are only a few spots to sit. The food is always fresh & they will make it with no oil or less spice. You can enjoy Chinese food & still eat healthy! The prices are reasonable in today's market.

            1. re: carly_mizzou

              I believe the new place is called Joe's Place, but it doesn't look very classy from the outside. Anyway, it's right near the Starbuck's on the corner of Pico & Robertson Blvd & a small Subway.

          2. Bloom Cafe is solid and pretty close.

                best goddamned chicken soup in the city and they sell frozen to go. keep it in your freezer in case you get a cold. lucky you.

                (also, you can zoom down to pico and venice to pluck the best fried chicken in town - Golden Bird. make sure to get the spicy wings. so good with beer).

                1. re: gpescador

                  +1 for Al Gelato. I've moved from the area, but still visit the joint every time I'm in the area. Their tomato sauce seriously has crack in it. So good.

                  1. re: kermit

                    +1 for both Bloom AND Al Gelato.
