The L.A. Times front page devotes its left hand column today to 5th St.'s Nickel Diner, which opened last week "on the corner of crack and smack," as the owners bluntly put it. I haven't gotten there yet but I'm looking forward to seeing the original menus painted on the walls and sampling some non-vegan breakfast for a change. Looks like owners Monica May and Kristen Trattner are trying hard to make Downtown welcoming even on its grungiest streets. So, how's the food?
