Any new Hollywood recommendations?

Near Highland and Hollywood Blvd or Sunset and Vine. Needs to be quick and easy. So far planning to go to Musso & Frank and the Farmers' Market Kitchen. Isn't there a new seafood place nearby?

Also plan to go to the Hollywood Farmers' Market itself the Sunday before Labor Day. Any particular sellers I should make an effort to visit? I will be flying home that night so not looking to buy much, but interested in tasting the best and eating there.

    I think you're talking about Connie & Ted's. Tough reservation, though. Littlefork is also seafood....and very good. As for the Farmers Market, lots of different stands to choose from. Kind of depends what you're in the mood for. There's good Vietnamese, crepes, Mexican and sausages....just to name a few. You can definitely graze your way through......

      The only seafood place (aside from Katsuya and the sushi place on Wilcox) in the area is Littlefork. Connie & Ted's is over in West Hollywood.

      Other new options are Stella Barra (Italian) or Trois Mec, which is neither quick nor easy, though.

      I wasn't too impressed with Farmer's Market Kitchen. Seemed very amateurish. Agree with Perk that there are lots of choices at the actual farmer's market.

      Oh, and for quick and easy, there's a new rice bowl place on Sunset, just west of Vine, on the north side of the street. You pick the rice, meat, veggies and sauce. I really enjoyed it.

        I believe you are talking about Shophouse Kitchen from the owners of Chipotle on Sunset west of Vine St. for build your own rice or noodle bowls.

        Tender Green's on Sunset east of Vine would be a quick place for a bite for salads and sandwiches.

        Also new a little farther south is Bludso's BBQ on La Brea at Melrose. Best BBQ this side of Compton.

          Yes, I meant Littlefork.

          It's a long working weekend, so trying to eat fresh, light and healthy when I can break away except for Musso's shortribs. Farmer's Market Kitchen fills that bill for me.

          The rice bowl place sounds like it will work for me. Thanks for mentioning it.

        Valerie for cookies but pricey
        Carmela for ice cream
        Soledad for goat cheese, I like the habanero goat cheese
        Harry's Berries for strawberries, pricey and worth it
