This Echo Park bistro is where locals go for dinner, lunch and weekend brunch. The menu is solid, with eclectic offerings such as Szechuan fried calamari, seafood fideos, roast chicken and spaghetti and meatballs. Browse the beer and wine list for a good selection of reds and whites by the glass, as well as tasty craft beers. Wednesday is the popular (read: super crowded) half-price burger night. They've recently updated their patio, which makes al fresco dining here a delight. And if you want to escape the sweltering heat in the summer, the Park has some much-appreciated AC.

This unassuming spot near Dodger Stadium is surprisingly good. It's small and there's always a wait (weekday lunch might not be as bad) but it's worth it if you're not dying of hunger and need to eat like, immediately. Their prix fixe menu caters to both omnivores and vegetarians. Their weekly $6 burger night is a tasty dream but again, be prepared for the wait since it's a popular night.
This is a cute local spot that they've been slowly updating a fixing up for years. The food has always been good, but the decor, especially outside, needed an overhaul for years. They're finally catching on, and the place is a bit busier now than it used to be (and it's always been busy!). At brunch they bring free coffee cake and Wednesday nights are burger nights. Now if only they'd replace their creepy old sign!
A great place for home-cooked food with an updated, echo-park like flavor. Try the corn pudding...divine. And the fried chicken is excellent (and not your standard version). Salads are good, including for example, heirloom tomatoes from the chef's own garden. Wine list is limited but well chosen.
