The Stocking Frame
911 S. Hill St.
Los Angeles, CA 90015
(213) 488-0373
thestockingframe.com

The Stocking Frame’s food and drink options definitely will not overwhelm you since everything is seen on one to two pages of the menu. The atmosphere is very quaint and is good for a quick meet up with old friends or for happy hour or lunch with co-workers. One thing to keep in mind though, the menu typically changes which can be a downfall for those that fall and love and tend to stick to one or two items on the menu. For others who are more adventurous it may be a good thing to try out new food.
