Vintage L.A. book hits retro restaurants
The signing Saturday for Jennifer Brandt Taylor's new book Vintage L.A. was filled with lots of wonderfully dressed people -- she must know everyone who owns a vintage store in L.A. -- not to mention Rodney Bingenheimer. The book is a fun tour by neighborhood of vintage resources and sights including clothes shops, furniture stores, historic landmarks and restaurants. From Neptune's Net to El Coyote and Millie's, some of the restaurants are truly vintage, while others may be more recent but have some kind of retro cred. Taylor is now moving on to do Vintage New York, and these books would be a perfect introduction to newcomers to the city who want something more unique than a regular guidebook.
