I’m going to start posting my epicurean exploits here, both as a way to remember the good and the bad dining experiences I have as well as to serve as a guide for others who enjoy splurging occasionally and going to a great meal. Most of the restaurants will be from LA, often thought of as having fewer quality restaurants than say New York, Chicago, San Francisco, or even Vegas. But in my experience, there are many amazing restaurants here in the southern part of the west coast. You’ll no doubt see a bunch of the restaurants I go to reviewed by my food nemesis Jonathan Gold of the LA Weekly (more on that in another post), but here goes.
This post is dedicated to one of the restaurants in LA with the biggest buzz at the moment. And given the frequency in which restaurants open and close here, it thrills me that it’s doing so well. Animal on Fairfax has to be one of my favorite restaurants right now. If for no other reason than I couldn’t go a day in my life without eating some form of meat. As you can probably infer from the name, Animal does one thing and does it well.
