I just read a post on Dine L.A. about historic restaurants in Los Angeles. The story gives mini reviews and history about Casa Bianca in Eagle Rock, Chili John's in Burbank, Clifton's Brookdale Cafeteria downtown L.A., El Cholo on Western Ave., LA, Fosselman's Ice Cream Parlor in Alhambra, Langer's Deli near MacArthur Park, LA, Musso & Frank's in Hollywood, Taix in Echo Park, Taylor's Steaks near Koreatown and Yamashiro's in Hollywood.I've been to every single one of these places except for Fosselman's. I must visit there soon. How many of these historic L.A. restaurants have you visited? Yes, I love Los Angeles! I like to explore the city far and wide. My parents both grew up here. They often told me stories of the way the town used to look, what places had been torn down and how they travelled the City on the Red Car. When I was young, my folks used to take us on field trips around town to investigate the City. I'm so glad I paid attention! No matter how long I live here, there's always something new to discover in the Los Angeles area.

On Sunday, Larry and I will be attending the L.A. Conservancy tour, "The Sixties Turn 50." I'm so looking forward to seeing some great commercial mid-20th century architecture in the Westchester/LAX area. There are six stops on this tour. All of the sites are close to each other, so there will be a minimum of drive-time. If you register today, you can be cleared to visit the just-added TRW building!
