Lunch :: 50 Restaurants + Coffee Houses
I totally copped blogging bestie Jessica's style with this list. We're both adventurers at heart, and nothing makes us happier than exploring our respective cities. Unlike her, however, I could not narrow it down to 25.
So, I doubled the number and made it 50. I'm clearly crazy and indecisive. But, honestly, my favorite thing about LA is the multitude of restaurants waiting to be experienced. In the small town where I was raised, there were only a few to choose from. I feel so spoiled, happy and grateful here. The possibilities are endless!
To make this list, I pulled together ideas from a variety of sources: magazines, Yelp, fellow bloggers, local friends, and this old post. I can't wait to start crossing them off with Jessica, and Brandon and Celeste too. Would anyone else like to join? Yay for food lovers!
