Pann’s Restaurant

Best Biscuits, August 2008
In L.A.’s dwindling constellation of space-age diners, rarely does the food live up to the décor. Not so Pann’s. Run by the gracious Poulos family since 1958, the Googie masterpiece offers its patronage not just beautifully restored terrazzo floors and a crazy cantilevered roof, but also sautéed liver and onions, and a fried chicken dinner with the city’s best biscuits that, bar none, is as comforting as anything from the deepest South.
