The Apple Pan
Dinner with Pearl and Simon at The Apple Pan. Turns out the burgers have been the wrong idea the whole time-- it's their ham sandwiches that are crazy stuffed with ham and are worth ordering, not the burgers!
Fries are still so-so, cooked in the classic way, which unfortunately doesn't hold up well vs. the zillion other places in Los Angeles that do 'em better... but the banana cream pie is damned good. Problem as I've noted before is that a slice is six bucks or more, and if you want ice cream, you're paying through the nose for a slice of pie.
The obvious solution, should you be able to justify it, is to order a whole pie-- be it apple, banana cream, etc. A whole pie is the cost of three individual slices, yet you get twice the pie...
