If you’ve lived in Los Angeles at any point over the past 30 years, you’ve probably seen Angelyne. Maybe you only noticed a lady dressed all in pink, but for your sake, we hope you screamed ‘It’s Angelyne!’ and knew that you were in the presence of a living legend. She’s been an icon in this town forever – kind of like A.O.C. Both have figured out their thing and stuck to it – although in A.O.C’s case, that thing is being a wine bar with great food, not driving around in a hot pink corvette.
This West 3rd Street staple first opened in 2002, serving tapas-style dishes at a time when ‘the menu is all designed to share’ were not the most common words spoken in restaurants. Over the years, they’ve moved locations (to a building with the best patio in the city), added cocktails to what was once a wine-only spot, and padded out the truly excellent wine list, but other than that, things haven’t changed much here. And how much you enjoy your experience at A.O.C. is going to depend on whether that matters to you.
