After studying the art of Vietnamese cooking in her mother's kitchen in Honolulu, Mandoline Grill's owner and grillologist Mong Skillman takes her menu of native gourmet dishes on the road to serve the greater Los Angeles area, including Orange County, Echo Park, and Santa Monica. Like bowls full of Halloween candy, all dishes can be flavored with a delectable protein—such as pork, beef, barbecue chicken, and tofu—and are completely free of MSG. Tacos served on corn tortillas ($6, or $7 for beef) pair well with a Vietnamese iced coffee ($2.50), and the Hawaiian barbecue bánh mì ($6) slides in on a 12-inch french baguette with cucumber slices, pickled carrots, cilantro, and jalapeños. The Vietnamese nachos ($5), meanwhile, choreograph an elaborate musical number of mint, scallion, synchronized swimmers, and jalapeños atop crispy corn-tortilla chips. Vegans can grab the back hips of their coworker conga line and order rice vermicelli noodles ($6, or $7 for beef), which come chaperoned by crushed peanuts, shallots, cucumbers, and mixed greens.

If you've ever stood on the second floor of the Los Angeles Central Public Library and marveled at the explosion of color within the rotunda or the 12 adjacent murals depicting California history, then you have the Los Angeles Conservancy to thank. When the library was scheduled for demolition in the mid-1970s, concerned citizens formed the Conservancy to save the rotunda, the exterior limestone sculptures, and the library's many other architectural treasures. The group finally convinced the City Council to preserve the library in 1983, after years of public discussion, debate, and book-sniffing sit-ins. Ever since, it has advocated for greater Los Angeles's historic sites and educated people about the city's architectural heritage. The Conservancy is responsible for saving and revitalizing landmarks such as the former Cathedral of St. Vibiana, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House, and the world’s oldest remaining McDonald’s restaurant.
To accomplish its mission, the membership-based nonprofit offers a number of ways people can experience these beautiful and storied places. The Last Remaining Seats series earned a Reader Recommendation for Best Film Series and Best Downtown Event in the Los Angeles Downtown News' 2012 poll, in which the conservancy’s walking tours also earned the title of Best Downtown Tour. But the organization does more than save grandiose public buildings: increasingly, it also focuses on smaller community projects such as garden apartments and sites that reflect the area's rich Latino culture.
Executive director and 20-year Conservancy veteran Linda Dishman explained to Patt Morrison of the Los Angeles Times, "People are becoming more vocal. …That's one of the great secrets about Los Angeles: People really identify with their neighborhoods." The Conservancy also presents annual preservation awards to honor the efforts of individuals who fight to save places such as Pann’s Coffee Shop and Griffith Observatory.
