Page 74 of Los Angeles Magazine January 2009 issue featuring LA's Best New Restaurants.

The January 2009 issue of Los Angeles Magazine places Monica and Kristen’s Nickel Diner as the third best new restaurant in L.A.

The Palate in Glendale, and Gjelina in Venice, are respectively listed as number one and two in the list of ten selected restaurants.

This ends a good 2008 for the Main street eatery that locals call “The Nickel.” It’s been touted in Column One of the Los Angeles Times and noted by the New York Times Style Magazine as one highlight of Downtowns’ resurging Historic Core. Even pastry chef Sharlena Fong's Bacon Donut had some airtime in November.

The future's bright for both the restaurant and Downtown diners: the eatery will add long-awaited dinner hours in January.
