This is a small restaurant connected to American Rag that is worth a special trip. With maybe ten seats at the counter and a half dozen small tables, it's perfect for singles and couples. The food - salads, sandwiches, omelets - is terrific. No alcohol is served. There are also tables on the street, perfect for people-watching, and the people are very, very interesting on this stretch of La Brea.
Parking is impossible on La Brea after 4:00, so go for lunch, shop the area - some of the finest retail in Los Angeles and the Fahey/Klein Gallery (not to be missed) is just up the street - and leave before the tow trucks arrive...promptly at 4:01.
