Fred 62: 99 Essential Restaurants 2013

In a town of old-school diners, one of the best is basically a reproduction, although that certainly doesn't stop Fred 62 from giving good retro charm. Open 24 hours, it's the place to go for drunk food at 3 a.m. or the gossipy hung-over breakfast the next day. You can get eggs any way, a burger, a salad, tofu chilaquiles and almost anything in between. Fred 62 also serves a noble purpose at those times when you want American comfort food — a tuna melt, or a potpie — but you want neither the fancified, farm-to-table version nor the crappy, regular-diner version. You want it made the way you might make it, if you could be bothered. Walk in through the mint green door under the atomic orange sign, slide into one of the vinyl booths, and eat the way you did in high school but better. 1850 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz; (323) 667-0062, fred62.com. Daily, 24 hours. Entrees $9.62-$14.89. Beer and wine.
