Tattooed waitresses serve eggs many ways, an assortment of breakfast sandwiches and comfort food for lunch and dinner at this hip Los Feliz diner. Open 24 hours, Fred 62 serves beer and wine, along with non-diner fare, such as their "sin delicious" (soba noodles with chinese broccoli and mushrooms). There are cut-outs of old-fashioned milkshakes on the walls, and their version of mac and cheese on the menu, aptly named "Mac Daddy & Cheese Balls."
In a town of old-school diners, one of the best is basically a reproduction, although that certainly doesn't stop Fred 62 from giving good retro charm. Open 24 hours, it's the place to go for drunk food at 3 a.m. or the gossipy hung-over... More »
Like a cleft apricot, the logo of Fred 62 diner sits above a stretch of Vermont Avenue pavement in Los Feliz, where the smoking, chattering masses talk too much and too, like, loud as they ease your suffering soul. These are the outdoor tables, at which alcohol is not served, street gazing is optimal and the smell of good cigarette smoke ignites your fantasies as they walk by, partners attached. Never mind. Fred 62 is 24/7. Technically, this means that you never need to eat at home, a thought both tempting and expensive. When you wait, in the singular, for a seat inside (since there has only ever been one of you), you will end up at the counter within skin-sticking distance of other diners, decades too young, partners attached. Never mind. You're here for the buzz; for the waitress who looks like Mary Steenburgen; for the Cabernet whose succulent, dry taste has you straining to read the label. For the waiters in black T-shirts with JESUS IS OUR DISHWASHER and EAT PORK on the back — and a professionalism that keeps their fingers off the wine glass rim while more touted establishments remain oblivious. But crucially, you're here for the plates of edible art they make of every menu item. Who knew apple slices could channel Venus flytraps? That grilled shrimp could live alongside bendy oblong tofu in a swath of creamy penne? Or that the salmon slab in the dish called Fairfax High could taste just like the raw bacon you sneaked at 12? At 4 a.m., or 7, at Christmas or Halloween or on July 4, there will be people in here, either alone and nodding off or in validating groups, while flames erupt in back amid loud laughs, and gravied mashed potato craters whisper, "Eat me. Eat me, why should you be denied?"—Mel Yiasemide
Okay, so if it's like 2AM and you and your friends are drunk-- drunk enough to not care about how much money you spend on pretty all right diner food and listen to some early 90's "alternative rock" (I really wouldn't call it that) and check out those witty (heh) t-shirts the employees sport at the establishment, Fred's 62 is the place to be. ESPECIALLY for their mac daddy n cheese balls (deep fried mac n cheese made of four different cheese). Nothing satisfies the drunk munchies like those greasy little delicious love balls. To further please your gross drunk cravings, sprinkle some tabasco sauce on the angels or dip them in ranch dressing. Go for the gold.
