The Best of Los Angeles

Once you've lived in Los Angeles a little while, it's easy to become complacent about our extraordinary surroundings. Another perfect day in L.A.? Sure, thanks. And we'll have an organic-mint-and-Meyer-lemon-vodka cocktail with that, please.

Here at L.A. Weekly, after pioneering the Best of LA template with our first 200-plus-page special issue back in 1982, we've stretched the Best of LA idea into many fanciful forms. After all, does the best hamburger change all that much from year to year? But as we prepare to celebrate the paper's 30th anniversary in December, we thought we would go back to our Best of LA roots and give our readers a classic collection of city bests. And that best hamburger? It's not the one you might expect.
