Last month, I sent a question to all the other writers about late-night dining options in Downtown. There was a lot to be said about The Pantry.

Tony: id say The Pantry, but im a man who could eat meat and potatoes for breakfast lunch and dinner. oh wait i already do.

Ashleigh: Am I the only person in LA who thinks the pantry is kinda gross? well...their sourdough is good but i've never left the place feeling great about my meal... it's def a piece of LA history.

Tony: the pantry is gross
i hear the waiters are excons
i believe the mashed potatoes are powdered
i hate the cole slaw
i hate that you have to pay the homeless man tax before you even make it to the door
and i also dont like that they only have pepsi

and yet its my favorite restaurant in la and if i was richer id go there more than once a week.

Ashleigh: enlighten me tony, why do you love it so? oh and i always give that homeless man my leftovers...
