I was at UCLA for a grad fair yesterday and had to pick a place for dinner to sit and wait out LA traffic. Now usually I'm not the biggest fan of LA--overcrowded, lack of pretty buildings, an overall feeling of being squeezed in tight like sardines--but the UCLA area is different from the rest of LA. This part of town, known as Westwood, is undeniably adorable. Most of the homes were built in the 1920s--probably America's most charming decade for architecture.
(Apologies that I only had my camera phone with me!)
Once dinner rolled around, I decided to check out a spot called Lemonade which was recommended to me.
If you find yourself in LA trying to wait out traffic like me, GO TO THIS PLACE! The food is described as "Seasonal Southern California Comfort Food," and that's right on the money.
I believe this place is already well known in LA, but for those of us just visiting and unfamiliar, this is a must-go restaurant! A Lemonade will be opening in San Diego soon (yay!). Oh, yeah...and get the lemonade (I chose peach ginger, pictured above).
Multiple Locations, but I went to:
9001 Beverly Blvd
West Hollywood, CA 90048
