Inspired by LAist's own 7 Reasons to Love L.A. series, Zach Brooks at Midtown Lunch took a stab at his own version: 7 Reasons to Hate L.A. (Lunching, That Is). "As much as I love much of the food in L.A.," he said, "there are some things about lunching in this town that really piss me off." Of those include people who go to Chipotle (this city has so much Mexican to offer, why be like a New Yorker whose only decent option is the chain?) and paying by the pound at buffets (shouldn't it be unlimited?).
