Are you hungry, but also sort of want to go to Medieval Times? Skip the trip to Anaheim and go to The Tam O’Shanter, an LA classic and one of the oldest restaurants in the entire city. Operating since 1922, this place feels like a Scottish travelers lodge that a Stark could walk into at any point. The prime rib (it’s the same people as Lawry’s) is the obvious move here, but it’s hard to go wrong with anything. Whether you’re here getting drunk with a big group of friends, by yourself for a sandwich at lunch, or simply stopping in to experience some strange, Tam O’Shanter always delivers.

All'acqua has solid, if slightly underwhelming cocktail and salad menus, but they set the course for some absolutely magical entrees. When taken as a whole, it makes for a more than solid meal.
