La Brea has transformed significantly over the last several years, but the area still lacks a good neighborhood spot where you can drink beer, eat some food, and watch sports out of the corner of your eye. When 6th and La Brea opened, we thought it might fulfill those needs, but there’s just one issue - the food is not good. Aside from bland flavors, a vegan-friendly menu that includes things like chilled lentil soup, leek salad, and leaf rolls isn’t the kind of food that tastes good while drinking beer and screaming at the Lakers. That said, if you want to just catch the game and drink, this place is totally serviceable.
