It may well be one of L.A.'s most iconic signs: that perfectly round donut glazed only with the words "Randy's Donuts." The donut, which has greeted diners and passersby at 805 W. Manchester Boulevard since 1953, has been Randy's (or, more correctly, Ron and Larry Weintraub's) since 1978. But, as our friends at Eater report, the brand is expanding into Century City.
