10 Best Eats in Little Tokyo: Neighborhood Grub Crawl
|view from The Escondite|
"Escondite" means "hideout," but this place is easy to find -- just look for the cobalt blue neon arrow. Or listen for the strains of indie and country-infused rock -- Escondite keeps a tight live music schedule. Then grab a beer or cocktail, kick back at a booth, and enjoy the kitschy western décor. Contemplate trying your luck on the Addams Family pinball machine, or one of the game boards stacked behind the register. Before you leave, meander onto the patio to gaze at the twinkly downtown skyscrapers and recall the day's adventures, beginning with Hawaiian French toast. 410 Boyd St. L.A.; 213-626-1800.
