Posts on how to drink like a Mad Men character seem to outnumber ones on how to eat like one (though there is a Mad Men cookbook. To capture the vibe of dining out during that era, you could do no worse than to visit Los Angeles and look up LA Weekly‘s favorite mid-century restaurants.
On the LA Weekly list “10 Best Classic Mid-Century Restaurants in L.A.: Pretend You’re in Mad Men,” you’ll find some great throwback joints across the city. Hollywood institution Musso & Frank Grill is among the classics named. Two spot are in the east part of town—Clearman’s North Woods Inn in San Gabriel and The Derby. And quite a few, like Lawry’s The Prime Rib, have not changed their menu drastically over the years, except increasing prices to keep up with the times.
