I’ve been hearing quite a buzz about all these new spots opening up in Echo Park. It’s about time. Not that there was anything wrong with Barragan’s or the Gold Room, but Dusty’s and Aroma was not the Sunset Blvd. east siders answer to foodie bliss. Lot 1 recently opened up across from the Gold Room and seems to be a hit. The place was packed at lunch today.
I have yet to try The Park and 15 and potentially a new Italian spot opening up, all along Sunset Blvd, east of American Apparel but West of Dodger Stadium. Both these other places are only open for dinner though.
Last Sunday, I had plans to meet some cyber food pals in person at Lot 1, but after a few phone calls during service hours regarding if they had AC or not and not hearing back, we decided to reschedule our meeting. I couldn’t risk sweating on my plate of Cowgirl Creamery cheeses or the hamachi appetizer I had read about online. I kinda feel like I went to see a movie without them. You know, like those times you wait and wait to see a movie with a specific someone and you just crumble and have to see it before their schedule allows. I shouldn’t gloat about what I experienced, but I will anyways since the lunch menu is different than dinner.
