The City of Angels is known for so many things, not least of which is all the famous places Hollywood’s movie stars and elites ate, drank and partied.

In the new book, “L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants,” award-winning chef and writer George Geary name-checks these famous restaurants and hangout spots. From Musso & Frank Grill in the 1920s, to Ciro’s in the mid-twentieth century, to Spago in the 1980s, Geary gives readers an insider look by providing little-known facts and anecdotes of these legendary restaurants, many of them no longer exist.

For AirTalk’s ongoing series, “Native Angeleno,” Larry speaks with George about his new book.

What is your famous LA restaurant? What do you remember about it?

Guest:

George Geary, author of “L.A.’s Legendary Restaurants” (Santa Monica Press, 2016) and the author of nine cookbooks.
