Granville WeHo

There’s a wonderful, neighborhood-casual vibe to Granville WeHo, with a menu that isn’t afraid of a little spice and armchair-travel in flavor. Their Chicken Noodle Soup starts with an eight-hour bone broth, and the Thai Ginger Salad is a house favorite. For dineL.A., you can participate in a caloric feast for only $20, starting with the Uptown Mac & Cheese, followed by a Bacon & Blue Burger, with mushrooms and a port-wine reduction. Or, try the Get in my Belly Bowl, with ponzu pork belly, fried egg and soba noodles. Better bring a friend, because after all that, you still have desserts like the Devil’s Advocate Flourless Chocolate Cake, with cream cheese frosting and port cherries.

Grab a sampler of Jo’s Wicked Good Chowdawhich gives you a taste of three variations, a New England, a Manhattan and a Rhode Island. Or, choose to indulge in a half-dozen, chef’s-choice raw oysters with fresh horseradish and mignonette. The Lobster Roll here is an L.A. institution, always available your way. The first option is to have it hot, with warmed, drawn butter. The second is a cold preparation, with the meat tossed in a creamy, chilled mayo.
