D.J. Waldie chose a Lebanese restaurant for his Free Lunch, and that's a long way from what he grew up. Here he explains that his mother was the best cook in the neighborhood, by virtue of not burning everything.
Free Lunch visits Cole's, established in 1908 at the base of the historic Pacific Electric Building. Our guests Alie Ward & Georgia Hardstark ordered their famous French Dip accompanied by some signature cocktails.
Once a week we treated one of our kcet.org commenters to lunch at a reasonably-priced restaurant in the Los Angeles area.
