Los Angeles Dish of the Month (March 2014) - Nominations

Los Angeles Dish of the Month (March 2014) - Nominations

We all know the drill by now, but in case you do not. The idea is this: choose a 'Dish of the Month' for the LA area and then collectively try as many versions of this dish as possible during the month reporting back with details and photos. It's great to talk about places you've been in the past, but the idea is to explore new places and make new discoveries.

The dish that gets chosen might be something very specific (chili fries) but might also be more of a dish category (potatoes). It's up to everyone here, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best and most interesting versions!

Some ideas off the top of my head to start the new year off.

Cabbage
Oysters
Menu Items < $10
Menu Items > $25
Food on a stick
Offal

Anyway, this is the nomination thread for March 2014 …you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread, it will be one vote per user.

To nominate a dish, please (please!) post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. This thread will be open until 11:59 PM PT on February 22th.

      Do pizza pies also count, or chicken pies, or ?

      1. re: carter

        I would think yes to pot pie and no to pizza.

      2. re: J.L.

        Is 3/14 national pie day ????????????

        That's a funny date to eat pie on.

        I always thought it was in April.

        Anyhow, pies are under 10 bucks a slice usually so maybe I'll chain my vote to that shit.

      3. PIE...mmmmm, sounds good. Voting over. March is PIE month.

        1. PIE
