What are the criteria for "bike friendly"? Many bike racks? Bike parking in view of the seating? Willingness to serve people in flourescent lycra?

Gooooood question. I notice they list La Cabanita, but other than the fact that the PAA has meetings in their party room, I can't think of anything that makes them especially "bike friendly." Maybe it's because some of the employees ride to work.

Half of the resturants in Los Angeles have at least a dishwasher who rides to work.

Yeah, but I really couldn't help myself. It really does discriminate against cyclists.

I knew somebody would get the drift. But are you sure it's only half, or are 40% of the others classified as pedestrian friendly??

IMO, bike friendly means that they have bike racks nearby and the location is easy to get to via bikes. It would also help if they're bike friendly meaning they get a lot of cyclists and they like them so they're cool with filling up your water bottle, etc.

The Good Stuff in Redondo is pretty good too.
