la cienega boulevard, restaurant row

If you've ever been to Lawry's or The Stinking Rose, you know what Restaurant Row is all about: massive quantities of awesome food served with Vegas flash. You also probably know where most of the action lives: in and around the parking lots. With seven intimidatingly fast lanes of traffic swirling around right-hand lane car queues (and their legions of attending valets), it's odd + interesting that the buzzing activity outside each restaurant revolves around the mundane transaction of paying someone to take your car off your hands. Narrowing the street would cinch the dining throng tighter together, encouraging an activity everyone actually enjoys: people watching! See it narrowed!
