Food Trip: Breakfasts, Lunches and Dinners in Los Angeles, California

Lunch

Former Top Chef contestant Betty Fraser co-owns grub, a restaurant that prides itself on serving California comfort food. The interior is best described as homey, which fits perfectly with the food. Try the "after-school special," a grilled cheese made with cheddar and Swiss on sourdough and plated next to a bowl of creamy tomato soup. Or you can choose to go green with a “hot chicks” salad. The salad is topped with a boneless chicken breast covered in a super spicy sauce, onions, celery, carrots, bleu cheese, and tossed in ranch dressing. Regardless of your main dish, order a side of black pepper potato chips, which add a perfect crunch to every meal.
