Stepping out at the Cat and Fiddle in the middle of Hollywood (Sunset between Seward and Wilcox) is still a fun evening for those looking to raise a pint. While the British-style pub continues to offer up English fair and a decent variety of lager, it doesn’t attract the working-class crowd it did twenty years ago. Whereas one used to dine and drink along side fire fighters and blue-collar types, now the set is quite trendy. You might have a steak-and-kidney pie next to a couple of alterna-rocker types in skinny jeans and Buddy Holly glasses who are only there for the cocktails. But the food is still decent, if a touch pricey. Safe bets on food include the fish and chips, the Croque Monsieur (grilled cheese and tomato), and any of the desserts (delicious mousse and tiramisu). Also a great place for a decent brew!
