On the family tree of LA soul food, Comfort LA is like the cool cousin who always shows up to family gatherings in brand-new sneakers—they know how to pull off the classics with style. With locations in DTLA and Inglewood, this modern soul food operation has a streamlined menu filled with crunchy fried chicken wings (their signature) plus sides like beans and rice, greens, mac and cheese, and candied yams, all served with thick squares of cornbread. The downtown location is open until midnight and you’ll usually find an energetic crowd eating after concerts get out. Make sure to order extra of their sweet-spicy hot sauce and a gingeraide to drink.
