This is one of the only local restaurants that can use the words “World Famous” in their advertising and have a credible claim to the distinction. The Spot has been a place of pilgrimage since 1977 and is the oldest vegetarian restaurant in greater Los Angeles. Some of the dishes have been on the menu from the beginning and go back to the hippie era. But credible vegetarian renditions of Mexican, Italian, and Japanese dishes are also offered. If you’re vegetarian, vegan, or just like good food and want to try something different, this is the place to go. — RF
