Places w/ TVs to watch Games
I know this thread has been done a bunch of times... people asking for places to watch the Lakers, Dodgers, Kings, etc... But whenever, I browse through those threads, there are usually just a bunch of places that have no business being mentioned on CH (the Yardhouses and Barney's Beanerys of the world). I just wanted to see if anyone had any new places that have TVs to watch sports that are also Chow-worthy.
Here's what I got:
Father's Office - not really a lot of TVs, and IIRC, no sound. But still worth mentioning.
Blue Cow Kitchen - Nice outdoor seating and bar. Tasty beers and cocktails don't hurt.
Uncle Yu's Indian - Skewers, beer, and a bunch of TVs viewable from every table/angle.
Park's BBQ - Gotta get the right seats.
There are also a few places in k-town that I personally haven't been blown away by, but I'm sure there's more than:
Beer Belly: only 1 or 2 tvs in a tight space. Plus, when they're busy it's hard to get the seats you want.
Biergarten: only been once and I sat along the wall where the projector was and I couldn't see a thing.
So... any other spots with good food to catch a game?
They have quite a few screens at Smith Woodhouse....across from Century City Mall. But I don't think their food is as good as it was when they first opened.
Go Burger - sit at the bar, parking sucks though
Tilted Kilt - great selection of beer
Surly Goat - great selection of beer
Beachwood BBQ - more great beer
Buffalo Wild Wings - don't care what anyone thinks, boneless wing thurs and cheap beer
Hooters - LA Live, great crowd
Heroe's - Fullerton, lots of burgers and over 100 beers on tap
Hollingshead - sandwiches and great beer selection
Was at the Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at LA Live last night (pre-Van Halen show). We were pleasantly surprised by the food, and they had tons of tvs showing both basketball and hockey. It was a really fun atmosphere.
One of my faves in OC is Taps Brewpub & Seafood Restaurant. It's at 101 E Imperial Hwy, Brea. It has a wide variety of seafood, steaks and pasta with a wide selection of brew styles.
(714) 257-0101. http://www.tapsbrea.com/. It's Chow worthy both for food and beer. Oh and I originally forgot to add they have a number of TVs with sports on when games are going on.
This has been pissing me off lately. How come with all these stupid gastropubs opening, none of them have TVs? Golden state has one. Manna in Little Tokyo has improved drastically from it's previous location, has many TVs and a banchan buffet but it's still AYCE. There's also oinkster which has 2 TVs.
I miss 8 oz burger bar.
Ham Ji Park in K-town has a few flat screens that go really well with their pork neck soup and bbq ribs.
A-Won has a TV: not visible from everywhere and often tuned to mysterious Korean programming, but we recently watched an NBA playoff game while enjoying our usual hwe dup bap/al bap/fishcake soup fest.
Steingarten has plenty of TVs and a nice sausage selection.
