Best Retro Diners HIT : 433

Photograph by John Eng There are only a handful of honest-to-goodness railcar diners in L.A. (the reopening of Phil’s in North Hollywood this month means there’s one more).

Best Plant Nurseries HIT : 487

  Just about everything grows in Los Angeles, from Mojave yuccas to South American ginger to Himalayan impatiens.
