Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Seafood Restaurant
$$
“Cajun/Creole seafood that is very popular. I suggesting eating inside. You get gloves, bib, and any seafood tools. You can order anything from Crab to Oysters to Crawfish. If line is too long order to go and eat next door. All you have to do is order a drink. ”

Korean Restaurant
$$$
“This is a legit Korean BBQ place, originally started in Gangnam, Seoul, South Korea. It's one of my favorites. It's not all-you-can-eat, but I prefer it that way because the quality of the meats are significantly better. For a truly authentic Korean BBQ experience, check this place out! A 20-30 minute Uber ride away. ”

Steakhouse
$$
“Ok this one isn't walking distance...but it's the only steakhouse I go to. Ask Alex to make you a dirty martini the way James likes it; order the coulotte cut medium rare(only two cuts of these per steer), and ask the waiter to show you the booth that Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack used to sit in. Oh yeah, did I not mention this was their favorite too? This place has been around since 1947.”

Korean Restaurant
$
“This is a bar and Korean kitchen that has a menu full of FANTASTIC Korean dishes as well as the option to order smaller Korean bar dishes and skewers. The vibe is kind of grungy and it can be smokey from the grills inside but its one of my favorite places in LA to eat and drink. ”
