Welcome to the most exciting new restaurant in Los Angeles! The Starving Actor is pleased to welcome you to our brick and mortar location on Wilshire. We offer exceptional, casual dining with an emphasis placed on honest, caring food, our own brand of L.A. comfort food. Don’t worry, we still have the decadent funnel cakes that made us into one of the most in demand food trucks in California. (funnel cakes) As with all things, the urge to put down roots is strong and it was time to show the world what we could do on dry land. Think of it as the next logical evolution of our What the Funnel food truck, only with seating!
The thing that is so exciting about food trucks is the innovation that seems to spring from this guerilla type of cooking. The DIY aspect is often extremely attractive to many and the struggle is often cherished. That is why we decided to brand our space The Starving Actor, in the grand tradition of chasing dreams. After all it is all about the dream isn’t it? That dream could be to write the next big script or land that pilot; your dream might have nothing to do with the bright studio lights or you could have already made it to the top. (funnel cakes) It is these dreams that the Starving Actor holds dear and why we are committed to offering exceptional, american classics. What could be better after a long day of the struggling valet/writer than to kick back with like minded people and throw down on the best wings you will ever have? (Just be sure to save room the funnel cakes.)
