Top Eastside diners; rockin’ rotisserie chicken; top of the ‘cheap eats’



Two old-school Eastside diners made the cut on Eater LA’s list of “22 Classic Diners Every Angeleno Should Try, 2017 Edition.” First up is Brite Spot in Echo Park, for attracting a mixed crowd to the classic neighborhood eatery. Millie’s Café also received a mention for being “reliable” – maybe for the food, the service or … both? The diners are each on Sunset Boulevard, with Brite Spot in the 1900 block in Echo Park and Millie’s in the 3500 block in Silver Lake.

  • On the hunt for a tasty rotisserie chicken? Head to Turning Fire in Eagle Rock. Named as one of best rotisserie chicken restaurants in Los Angeles by the LA Weekly, Turning Fire offers a not-so-ordinary bird with flavors such as lemon and lavender or Jamaican jerked chicken. Turning Fire is located in the 2100 block of Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock.
  • There is a bounty of cheap eats on the Eastside, according to Eater LA. The soon-to-open brick-and-mortar Maury’s Bagels was one of the contenders in the blog’s “25 Essential Cheap Eats in Los Angeles, 2017 Edition.” The company is opening up a location in Silver Lake, but until then is slinging bagels at Dinosaur Coffee in Silver Lake on Saturdays. Dough Box in El Sereno also received a mention with its Chicago-style pies. And to top off the list, Dune in Atwater Village made the list for its “moist falafel” that “might be the best in the city right now.” Dinosaur Coffee is located in the 4300 block of Sunset Boulevard and is slated to open in the 2800 block of Bellevue in Silver Lake. Dough Box is located in the 2700 block of Eastern Avenue in El Sereno. Dune is located in the 3100 block of Glendale Boulevard in Atwater Village.

  1. Millie’s is best sober (or perhaps hungover). Brite Spot is best drunk.
