The Best Pickles in L.A.

It's National Pickle Day, a perfect occasion for marking our city's obsession with all things pickle-y, whether at restaurants or at home. There is a wide range of pickle styles available in L.A., from Armenian to Japanese to highly experimental and untethered to any country. Where do you find your favorite pickles? Tell us in the comments!
