favorite l.a. restaurants.

:: THIS BLOG HAS MOVED TO SuckyBlog.com ::
Pat and i eat out a lot these days, because l.a. has lots of excellent places to eat. These are our favorites. They are not necessarily places everyone else raves about, and some of them when you go don't seem super special in any way. But the two things they have in common are that 1) we have favorite dishes that we order at each, and 2) we go back to them as much as possible whenever we're in the general vicinity- i guess places we vote for with our feet are the real winners, even if they are not always the toast of the town's critics and gourmands. On that note, i must tell everyone to stop going to all the places i like, because i really don't like waiting in line. haha. Thanks to all the friends and family who introduced us to many of these fine establishments.
