Anthony Bourdain's L.A. Picks: Atwater Village, Koreatown, In-N-Out
For his new Travel Channel show "The Layover," Anthony Bourdain is sharing his eating and lodging tips for short stays in major cities around the country and the world. Monday night's episode revolved around Los Angeles -- and although Bourdain didn't break any new ground, he still gave a pretty good snapshot of how to consume our city in 48 hours.
Among the highlights: A visit to Atwater Village's Tacos Villa Corona (although he makes it sound like Atwater Village is a world away from the rest of the city).
Bourdain also spends time with Ludo Bites; Hollywood's farmers market; Koreatown; In-N-Out, which he calls "the only American chain worth a damn"; and his favorite hotel, the Chateau Marmont. The Travel Channel website also offers up a list of Bourdain's favorite L.A. bars (including dive White Horse Inn) here.
