Looking for 2 types of Restaurants in LA?
1) the spiciest-- but not sushi or fish
in the $20+/plate price range
Le Pain Quotidien in several locations in L.A., serves excellent but super casual breakfasts, lunches and dinner (at some locations). Most, if not all, foods served are organic. This is a French/Belgian chain that has some of the best bread, pastries, sandwiches and other goodies you can find. Check out: http://www.lepainquotidien.com/
