RE: El Coyote In Los Angeles?
You MUST go to El Coyote, for the atmosphere if nothing else. Very historic...or simply sit in the bar and have a deadly margarita....served by the lovely Lin.
Food wise? Ughhhh...the worst. For a really great Mexican meal nearby (and lots of history as well...it was Sinatra's favorite), head over the Antonio's on Melrose. Antonio himself will greet you at the door, and his son Manny will serve you a great Margarita with a smile...really miss this place...
