Chow Worthy Places around Beverly and Alvarado?

Schweinhaxen Jul 21, 2010 07:32 AM

Hi I am attending a concert at the Bootleg Theater near Beverly and Alvarado this weekend, and wanted to know of any decent chowish places near that area. I am open to Mexican, Thai, or Korean in that area so please let me know if I am missing something. I would have gone to Chichen Itza on 6th street, but sadly it has closed.

    I was recently reading Jonathan Gold's 99 Things to Eat in LA and these were three in nearby Korea Town. Masan (most adventurous with live octopus), Mandarin House, and Park's BBQ. For Thai, you could head a couple miles up the 101 and try Jitlada in Hollywood.

      I think the original Tommy's burger stand is right on that corner. At the other end of the cost spectrum you're within easy striking distance of Pacific Dinning Car, Korea Town, and pretty much all of the downtown restaurants.

        OH, and of course, Shibucho on Beverly, closes at 12am (no longer open till the wee wee hours).

          What could one expect to pay at Shibucho for a party of 4. Omakase or a-la-carte?

            Yeah, it is very pricey, Omakase maybe 100 to 125 per person, and a la carte at least about 60 to 75 I would guess. I think it's one of the top three sushi bars in LA, although it is inconsistent, and at that price point, may be if you don't want to take a chance go with the other recommendations.

            You're right Neta, of course. I always get those two confused.

            Hey, fugu'd about it! (g). For the experience of a lifetime (or ending one) you are going to be very close to Dae Bok. See J. Gold's review here: http://www.laweekly.com/2008-11-06/ea...
