When we arrived for our reservation, the hostess told us that we would have to finish eating in an hour and a half because there was a larger party coming in?!! I asked if the larger party had reserved the entire restaurant and she said no, but it was Pearl's policy that we had a two hour limit to eat. I told her I had come to Pearl's for years and had never had that issue and asked for the manager. My friend and I were immediately seated and stayed for a little over two hours. The server was great, the food was pretty good... but the hostess got us off to a very unpleasant start. & We never saw a manager. 😕 More

Discover Los Angeles

Think Los Angeles is a one-industry town? Think again. From the micro-Seoul of Koreatown to unexpected fusion cuisines (take Chinese-Mexican, for one) and strip malls that house destination restaurants, the city’s restaurant scene is notably experimental and diverse. Ask locals where to find the best taco truck (or lonchero) in the city, and you’ve struck a match. These mobile microenterprises are a part of the city's lifeblood. With L.A.’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic, Jonathan Gold, describing the city as “less of a melting pot—more of a glittering mosaic,” we’re seeing L.A.’s vast palate show up on the plate.
