La Gondola4.5/5 stars
-Avocado eggrolls to die for (I had it and I didn't like it
 I can't eat Avocado when it's warm, I'm sure others can't too-Sillypainter).  Great Bread with garlic margarine on the house(agree-Sillypainter) Great Gondola Burger special for lunch with excellent pasta or a soup.  And the Chai Steak with Carmelized Steak Sauce and arguably the best kosher ribs out there.   I'm getting hungry thinking about this place!
Pico

Shiloh's4/5 stars
-Great baby back ribs and peppercorn steak.  They serve steaks with a number of dipping sauces which is pretty cool.  Also had some delicious key lime pie.
I did have a bad experience here with really bad food though...and service can be poor here as well.
Beverly Hills Thai4/5 stars-It can get very crowded so it's best to make a reservation in advance.
Jeff's 3.5/5 stars-Homemade onion rings, homemade sausages, Steak Sandwich, Western burger, lots of good and greasy stuff here.
PKD (Pico Kosher Deli)3.5/5 stars
-Excellent Deli-style food along with equally good homemade onion rings. No Reservations, but rarely more than a few minute wait. closes at 9 PM.
Pat's3/5 stars
-Either you love this upscale steakhouse or you hate it.  I used to hate it until my brother became good friends with the bartender.  Now when I go back with him we're treated to a feast for a king! Don't miss the bread pudding dessert!
Shanghai2.5/5 stars
-LA hasn't had very good Chinese since Sholom Cuisine closed.  This place is decent though.
Harissa4/5 stars-Home of the LA-famous pretzle challah! They offer Middle Eastern/Mediterranean/North African cuisine.  They have lots of seating and long hours.

Milk/Parve:

1. Fish Grill
4.5/5 stars
-The best fish you'll ever have, period.  I'm not such a fish person, but their Grilled Salmon on Angel Hair Pasta with a huge order of well-seasoned fries...YUM! Get the grilled salmon sandwich.

2. Milky Way Reopened, brand new place worth a visit
4/5 stars
-Steven Spielberg's adorable mom will come shmooze with you and show you his movie posters in the back.  Cheeze blintzes and lemon tart are awesome. Chimichangas, potato latkes, and more all at prices that haven't been raised in decades.

3. Pizza Nosh (Agoura Hills)
4/5 stars
-Excellent pizza and Eggplant Parmesean, worth a stop if you're in the area.

4. Pizza Mayven
4/5 stars
-Good plain pizza and excellent fries, and that's about it.

5. Nagila Pizza
3/5 stars
-Good but pricey stuffed crust pizza, and that's about it. There are some big fans of their Naco's out there as well.

6. Trattoria Natalie
4.5/5 stars
-A trattoria is translated from Italian as a tavern, and that's what this restaurant feels like.  They have a cool on-table feature: its a paging device with three bottons.  One botton calls for water, the other for the bill, the last for a waiter.  The food is very good and prices not too expensive.

7. Meshuga for Sushi/Meshuga for Sushi 2
4/5
-With 3 locations (one in La Brea, one in Pico, and one in the valley), they offer great sushi at reasonable prices.  They have some space to eat in the restaurant.  They have long hours and a decent lunch menu.


IF you eat non-CY:
-Sweet Rose Creamery, on Beverly is Kosher and considered some of the best ice cream in LA by foodies http://www.sweetrosecreamery.com/, usually have 4 or 5 non dairy flavors
-Toppings Frozen Yogurt 349 S Robertson Blvd, good frozen yogurt, usually have a non dairy flavor or two


If you eat CY:
-Milky's at 1429 S Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90035 recently became kosher and is cholov yisrael.

Breakfast/Bakery:
1. Cafe Elite
4.5/5 stars
-Amazing cake/crumb donuts along with your usual breakfast food.

2. Schwartz Bakery/Circa NY
4/5 stars
-A great but expensive bakery.  The crumb cheese danish is a personal favorite, as is their wonderful Caramel cake and "kit kat" chocolate rice crispy bars.
They also now serve breakfast in their Pico and Fairfax location.  I had the combo Pancake+Waffle+Franch Toast meal with fruit salad that was very good.
On friday's only they sell raspberry cheese pockets - they always sell out of them early.

3. La Brea Bagel
3/5 stars
-Very good bagels with all kinds of toppings and other breakfast food.

4. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf - 7235 Beverly Blvd
4/5 stars
-The only coffee bean in LA that has Cholov Yisroel upon request and offers 3 Pas Yisroel bakery items from Delice; Chocolate Almond croissant, Custard twist, and chocolate croissant - also upon request.

Thank you.

I got a good price with Avis through priceline ($25 for premium class) but am concerned about the long waiting times since i will be traveling with my wife and 3 year old daughter. Hopefully Avis Preferred (trough Amex platinum) will help help with the lines.

i signed up for avis preferred after i got a car from them thru priceline
if your name is on the board then you dont have to wait at all and can go directly to the car
if your name is not up on the board then the line should still not be long
you have to get off the shuttle at the avis preferred stop befpre the regular rental stop

Finally got around to writing a TR for our LA (SD) Delta Glitch trip. I am hoping this is not too long and my notes will be helpful to someone - especially someone travelling with a toddler. Thanks to all those who previously contributed to this thread (especially the Wiki) and helped me plan this trip.
Just for the record, this was not our first trip as a couple to LA (or SD) so we've previously gone to all the LA "must-see" attractions and did not feel a need to do most of them again... especially with a toddler.
-We flew Delta JFK –LAX at around 9:30PM and landed at around 12:30AM Monday morning.  (The adventures of our 2 year-old’s first flight, and our first time dealing with a toddler in an airport/airplane deserves a separate post). After gathering our luggage, we headed to Budget LAX via shuttle. We were let off the shuttle at the first stop for Budget Fastbreak members and were instantly greeted by an associate who upon request upgraded our standard size car to a compact SUV. Our prepaid price for the car was ~$250 for 2 weeks using Costco codes.  [Side note: We signed up for ‘Fastbreak’ when we made the reservation – not really knowing if it was worth anything, but it was free to sign up and it claimed to save time when arriving at the rental place – which it really did!]
-We then headed to Andaz WeHo to check in and get some shut eye. We had a ‘view room’ which had a small sitting area that could be closed off with a curtain – this worked out great as our son’s  “room”. The views from the room were pretty amazing, although our room was located right outside a really bright flashing billboard on Sunset Blvd and despite the blackout curtains, the lights still seeped through. We did enjoy the free minibar (excluding alcohol), but we did not enjoy the $34 valet parking fee– we could not find any overnight parking on the street.
-Monday: After a lazy sleepy morning, we headed to Café Elite for brunch. The place wasn't the cleanest and the food was nothing special, but the doughnuts were delicious! We then headed to Griffith Park for pony rides. When we arrived, we were quite disappointed to find out that there were no pony rides on Mondays. We checked out the rest of the park and spent the rest of the afternoon there:  went on a cute mini train ride – which our son loved, a carousel and our son spent 2 hours in a really nice big playground further up the road (still part of the park). We were still tired from the flight the night before so we headed back to the hotel and decided to order in. I checked seamless and the only place that delivered to the hotel without an outrageous minimum and/or delivery fee was Chick ‘n Chow so we took our chances and ordered from there. I took a swim on the rooftop pool with my son while my wife waited for the food to come. The food arrived pretty quickly and was surprisingly good.
-Tuesday: Breakfast - Schwartz's - great pastries! My son was still talking about the pony rides so we headed back to Griffith Park. We started him off on the "Pony Sweep" - a live merry-go-round style pony ride, and then moved him up to a solo pony ride. He had a great time. We went on the train ride once more and headed to Fish Grill - Pico for lunch. We are big fans of fish grill and they did not disappoint. After lunch we went to the Santa Monica Pier and had a great time walking around, trying out their carousel, and enjoying the beach. We went to Jeff's for dinner and enjoyed some awesome burgers.
-Wednesday: Breakfast - Pico Cafe - our favorite dairy breakfast/lunch place in LA. Our next stop was Disneyland so we ordered sandwiches for lunch from Pico Cafe as well. Disneyland was great although I would not necessarily recommend it for all 2 year-olds. My son is very familiar with the Disney characters and the highlight of his trip was meeting Mickey Mouse and Goofy in "person". The shows/parades were also enjoyable for him since he knew the characters. If your toddler is not familiar with Disney characters, then I wouldn't expect him/her to appreciate Disney at that age and I am not sure it would be worth spending ~$100 a ticket for the parents since the kiddie rides are no different than the kiddie rides in most amusement parks - aside from "It's a Small World." We stayed for the fireworks show and headed back to Pico area for dinner. It was around 10:30PM when we got to Pico and the only places that were still open were Jeffs and Pico Cafe. We weren't in the mood of meat at that late hour so we decided to pick up dinner from Pico Cafe (#3 for the day!) and brought it back to the hotel.
-Thursday: Brunch at Coffee Bean - Beverly Grove (S. La Cienega Blvd). We like this location since it has a custom yogurt parfait bar (not CY). Next we headed to Beverly Center to do some shopping - they have a decent selection of stores, including many high-end shops - Prada, Gucci... We drive down Beverly Drive looking for something else to do and found 'Color Me Mine' a pottery painting place. I watched my wife and son paint - they had a great time. It was pretty decently priced for Beverly Hills (For kids under 10 - studio fee is $6.10+ is  $10. Firing fee is $1/piece, and pieces range from $10 - $65. (Just make sure to go at least 3 days before you plan to leave L.A. since your pottery has to go through the firing process and is generally ready for pickup in 3 days.) There's a kosher fro-yo place (not CY) across the street that has awesome yogurt and one pareve sorbet option.  We went to Milky Way for dinner and we just love talking to the owner - 'Leah' -  Steven Spielberg's mother. We spent the evening at the Grove - my son was fascinated by the dancing fountains and we spent quite a while sitting there.
-Friday/Shabbos: Breakfast - Schwartz's again. Took a swim on the rooftop pool with my son while my wife packed up and checked out. Headed to our friends for shabbos. Saturday night was late and our son was sleepy so we went to Pizza Mayven and called it a night.
-Sunday: Breakfast at Coffee Bean and then headed to San Diego for week 2 of our trip. (Will post San Diego TR in San Diego thread later)

Runyon Canyon is a close drive from the SLS area and it has a wide open trail. A stroller and a backpack child would be fine -- it's just up a steep hill,
but it's not too rocky or dangerous. The view up top after 30 minutes is amazing. You can see the whole City of LA on one side and beautiful hills, palm trees,
some homes and the hollywood sign on the other side.

You can walk beyond for longer for more sights if you choose, but you'll need time to walk back, as well.

+1. There are three different paths up. You'd want the middle one which is  the easiest and the only one doable with a stroller.

Griffith Park
+1 While this is a great place for kids.  Travel town (within the park) has lots of trains kids can climb on. There also pony rides and a marry go round. As Griffith park is much bigger than central park in NYC, it's easy to get lost or not find a nice area. Generally if there's a lot of cars parked somewhere it's usually nice. It also gets really crowded on Sunday, so I'd go just during the week.

The hikes there are not great, but there are lots of places to walk.

Walking along Venice Beach/Santa Monica Pier may be nice.

I just got back from LA (TR coming soon) I hated Venice Beach. It was really seedy, homeless people sleeping everywhere. I felt like I had to check my pockets the whole time. Santa Monica pier might be nice though. Didn't make it there.

Thanx. Will do runyon canyon and santa monica with lunch at fish grill. Anyone know of any biking rentals that have options for little kids seats or attachments?
