One of the joys of eating in Boyle Heights is that you'll find a good amount of restaurants that are embedded in the neighborhood's history. Spots like El Tepeyac, Al & Bea's and Otomisan have passed the half-century mark and, when you walk into them, you can feel the past and the present intermingle. Yet, Boyle Heights is also home to younger restaurants, like Guisados and Un Solo Sol, who are carving out their own niches in the neighborhood.

As much as you enjoy Downtown L.A. and Hollywood, for you the real L.A. is the old L.A. that exists west of the 405 freeway from Bel-Air to the beach. Places that belong to Dennis Hopper, the Ferus gallery, Jim Morrison writing lyrics on Venice Beach, Less Than Zero trust fund babies, Faye Dunaway lounging by the pool post-Oscars, the Malibu Colony and Joan Didion’s lonely characters nibbling hardboiled eggs as they circle the 405 freeway, too rich to ever be happy. To you, that’s the essence of L.A., the strange paradise city where angels’ fortunes rise and fall daily, casual as the sun.
