Sure Sotto and Chi'Spacca have their own great pork chops, but Jonathan Gold and our very own Evan Kleiman agree it is Salt's Cure that has — hands down — the best in town. Chefs Chris Phelps and Zak Walters recently moved their meat joint to Highland Avenue in Hollywood. As per Gold's LA Times review, the pork chop is "a full pound of sustainably raised Marin Sun Farms pork from Northern California, lightly marinated, and cooked slowly, so that the thin rim of fat crisps while the juices concentrate in the meat and the pork tastes intensely, gloriously of itself. It's a pork chop, but it is also a tour de force."
