Blair’s wins the award for being one of the few places in Silver Lake that’s actually full of people who live in Silver Lake. The brick-walled and white table-clothed Italian spot does tend to run on the pricier side but that doesn’t stop Silver Lake from filling the place up each night with their dates or midweek dinner with friends. They know they’ll still be served one of the most dependable meals in the neighborhood.
