Los Angeles City Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell and his staff continued their monthly tradition today of taking one lunch hour a month to support a local and independently owned restaurant in the 13th District.
Earlier today, O'Farrell's Lunch Bunch dined at Boos Philly Cheesesteaks and Hoagies in Silver Lake (4501 Fountain Ave). The menu has a good variety of delicious cheesesteakes and hoagies, and the sandwiches earned an enthusiastic thumbs up from the Bunch.
Owner Andrew Ohn also has another location in Koreatown (3377 Wilshire Blvd). O'Farrell presented Ohn with a certificate from the City, thanking him for his entrepreneurial spirit.
O'Farrell has made it a point to shine the spotlight on local and independently small businesses in the district. The Councilmember says mom-and-pop businesses contribute to the character of our community and offer a more diverse selection in their stores.
Since O'Farrell was elected, his Lunch Bunch has visited Heywood Grilled Cheese in Silver Lake, Eat This Cafe in Hollywood, and The Mexican Village in Virgil Village.
