L.A. Dish of the Month, July 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 to start Summer:
Anyway, this is the nomination thread for July 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 June 25th.

I think we need to have a Chow potluck where everyone is assigned to bring a different pastrami offering, do a blind taste test, and settle this nonsense once and for all.
Meat only so as not to skew the results with such incidentals as bread, mustard, coleslaw, Mystery Dressing, or god help us, MAYO. They'd have to call in the riot police.
CHEESE AND FRIENDS
