During its 58 years in business,
fans of this venerable bistro
have included everyone from Orson Welles to the Kardashians to six presidents, and it continues to draw a crowd, especially from the music-related companies nearby. This year, its iconic Jean Leon Original Chopped Salad was chosen as the favorite dish in THR's Power Lunch survey. Fifty Shades of Grey producer Dana Brunetti says it's the "best salad in L.A.," with the secret being the special dressing, the fine chop and that it's "made to your liking with great service."
