It happens like clockwork. Someone in your group text says they want to eat somewhere ‘fun and different!,’ you respond with an uni omakase in a far-flung neighborhood, and they promptly reply that this meal needs to be in West Hollywood. Ground-breaking. Suddenly, you’ve lost all interest in the conversation and just want to find a place that everyone will commit to as quickly as possible. This is when you need to remember Spartina, a casual Italian restaurant on Melrose.
Finding a place to eat in LA with friends is a challenge – plans change and people bail. But Spartina, with its central location and food that keeps everybody happy, is always a solid backup.
