I ate at BLD recently. Breakfast Lunch Dinner. It’s Neal Fraser and the people from Grace restaurant. I had the best blueberry ricotta pancakes I have ever had. They were fluffy and the ricotta was interspersed throughout so they weren’t grainy and filled with delicious blueberries.
Joan’s is a must if you are anywhere near Los Angeles. It doesn’t matter what I am in L.A. for or what I have to do while I am there or what my dinner plans are. It’s the first thing I do. I go to Joan’s on Third. First it’s a great neighborhood; sort of Wilshire District, not quite Hollywood, maybe a few blocks. You can walk around and go to all sorts of great shops. There is a really amazing travel bookstore that I can get lost in for hours. But Joan’s is where I have to go for a great sandwich or soup. And Joan herself is there, making her signature omelets. Everything is from scratch. Very seasonal. A muffin or something at BLD, lunch at Joan’s, go to the beach and have dinner at Post. That’d be a perfect day for me in Los Angeles.
