Bad News for Porky Pig

Stopped by Nick's Cafe on the north end of Downtown Los Angeles today for a late breakfast/early lunch.

This place has really seen the ups and downs of the area and, happily, is still open today and reflects the rejuvenation of Downtown.  Authentic to it's roots -- and serving some of the finest ham around in generous portions -- Nick's has been cleaned up and has become something of a hipster hangout. 

Normally that wouldn't be a good thing in my book, but in this case a historic restaurant has been kept alive without being ruined.

Paris in Autumn

Had dinner last night at Meet in Paris in Culver City.  It's just down the block from the Kirk Douglas Theater, so it makes for a very convenient pre-show spot for a bite to eat.

The service was terrific and the bread was good but I just wasn't blown away by the food or the prices.

Definitely goes on the Been There, Done That List.  Happy that I went but there are too many other places to explore to go back.
