David Lynch's dining favorites
Source: Los Angeles Times
It’s no secret that David Lynch loves Los Angeles. But did you know the acclaimed director is not exactly fond of Santa Monica? (“I like to stay away at all costs from Santa Monica,” he says.)
Lynch is more of a fan of the Eastside lately; especially Silverlake and environs. “I like to drive at night through Hollywood, Echo Park and Silver Lake because of the atmosphere and because the feeling of the Golden Age of Hollywood is still alive,” he tells the Guide.
And what about Lynch’s famed love affair with Mulholland Drive? Fear not, children. Mr. Lynch still likes to “drive on Mulholland Drive anytime, day or night.”
Lynch may even hit Mulholland on his way to the Key Club July 16 to attend a fundraiser for his David Lynch Foundation.
Nico Vega, Gods & Monsters, 8mm and other bands will play the benefit, and items up for auction at the event include photographs from Lynch
Tickets for the event (at the Key Club on Sunset Blvd.) start at $15 and can be purchased here.
Before you hit the concert, you might want to consider eating at one of these spots below…you never know, the famed director/producer might just be dining at any one of these with a mysterious brunette, or two, in tow.
