  Lovely Larchmont Blvd
by gilescorey

Larchmont Village is an interesting little Los Angeles neighborhood that lies hidden between the leafy, mansion lined lanes of Hancock Park and the chaos of nearby Koreatown.

It's main street is tough to find(Larchmont Blvd) as it's a dead end on both ends. But, enter from Beverly and you're smack dab in "Main Street America". More Mid West than SoCal, the Village has pharmacies, sandwich shops, pizzerias and a bustling street scene that is difficult to find in LA.

And, although it's a fairly wealthy district of Los Angeles, it has an everyman air that belies the expensive real estate.

Try one of the famous sandwiches at the Larchmont Village Wine, Spirits & Cheese ... just be prepared to wait in line, as they've become local legends.

Village Pizzeria is quite good, as well; often considered among the best in the whole city. Pity they serve their pies with a huge helping of attitude.....

But, minus that Larchmont is an oasis in the midst of Los Angeles, and a nice spot to park that d*mned car and stretch your legs on a sunny afternoon.
