Conrad's in Glendale is the closest thing to a Midwestern diner in Southern California. The dark lounge is lit up by a fully stocked bar and serviced not by snotty mixologists but by hyper-efficient waitresses who love to call you "sweetie." Order up the fried chicken with a slug of whiskey, pair a BLT on rye with a dirty martini, or indulge in a wedge of cherry pie à la mode cut through by a straight-up Manhattan.
