Love their classical music on play all the time! Country decor, wood, one long communal table, breads, more breads, heavenly breads, healthy; yummy marmalade. Each restaurant has a major piece of art work – this one is with many cups. Spacious bathroom. Looking out to Kirk Douglas theatre and yet to be complete One Culver – all roads lead to Culver -:).
Will return, if in the area. A lovely cafe. The communal table anchors the space. The pink tulips are just wonderful. The map in the wide (wood?) frame is a nice touch. This is the second one we’re dining in.
Foods are delicious. A great place to read, for a cup of coffee, to read …
It opened in 1922, a movie theater that is … an early example of a lavish movie palace and is noted as having been the site of the first-ever Hollywood film premiere. It was built by showman Sid Grauman and real estate developer Charles E. Toberman, who subsequently built the nearby El Capitan Theatre and Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard. It is operated by American Cinematheque.

The interior is nice, and the seating is comfortable, reclines a little. It’s owned by Chinese Theatres. The movie is iMax Emma Watson’s Beauty and the Beast (it’s all about her). It’s a part of the big complex, parking is inexpensive. Wiki. The same real estate developer Charles E. Toberman also built Egyptian.

It’s on the long and winding Mulholland Drive (remember the movie – directed by David Lynch in 2001; mystery/crime). The hike is pretty steep and parking is tight – a cop is handing out tickets; but the views are great. The day starts cloudy but as we climb, the skies clear up. Hooray.

You come here to eat, with gusto. Authentic and down to earth atmosphere (no frill). Friendly and energetic young male waiting staff. The parking lot is small and can get busy easily. Another name for this restaurant is veggie wrap: aside from the usual romaine and lettuce, they offer mint (so large and round, very pretty), rice flour sheets, seaweed and even parsley, pretty neat. It’s my first time to eat white/colorless kimchi. They also offer the egg pot and kimchi pot are on the house. I’ll return.
