The Best Grapefruit Dishes in L.A.

Citrus is a fruit often associated with Christmas, but the growing season lasts all winter long in many areas, and as such, February has been deemed National Grapefruit Month.

Though the fruits are delicious plain - or, you know, broiled with a ton of brown sugar - they are also excellent ingredients in salads and dessert and with main. Here are some of our favorite grapefruit dishes around the city. Where have you enjoyed the best grapefruit? Tell us in the comments!
