LA Weekly's Description

At Last Café's first-time customers turn into instant devotees. Every one of
the 18 or so seats is filled nightly. Those who didn't think to snag a reservation either wait it out on the street or order to-go. Either way, budget about 30 minutes to find parking, which is frustratingly scarce and the inevitable topic of conversation for the first few minutes of your meal. The rest of the time, you'll talk about the food, about how chef John McLaughlin manages to charge a fraction of what other establishments of this caliber would. For example, his Brick Chicken: a deboned half-bird cooked flat under the weight of a brick, its crispy, mahogany skin reminiscent of the best Armenian rotisserie hen and meat so juicy it bursts. The cost for this soon-to-be-famous poultry is a mere $9.50.

At Last Café, a tiny jewel of a place that might be missed if you're not paying attention (it's tucked into a narrow wedge of Orange Avenue, just a block and a half up from the beach), serves up a meatloaf that's tender, thick and...

    The flat iron steak is delicious. Bring your own wine for a 4$ cork fee.
