For those of you not familiar with Los Angeles, I should tell you that it is very spread out. Plus, there’s traffic at pretty much all times of the day (When I first moved here, I got stuck in a traffic jam on the 10 at 2:30 am. True Story.). Because of this, I tend to stick to my little Venice/Marina del Rey neighborhood (unless I’m working/commuting), occasionally venturing out to Culver City or Santa Monica. The twins live in the valley so I venture out there once a week and there’s the infrequent visit to my doctor in West LA. I love to explore but unless there’s a specific reason that takes me to another part of the city, I stick to my local favorites when it comes to eating out.
