The Pantry looks like a colorized version of a 1950’s film noir set. I half expected the guy at the counter next to me to light up a luckily after he slid his plate away. I can imagine back in the ’30s a doe eye starlet fresh off the bus from Davenport. She sits in the corner and counts out her change to pay the tab. As she leaves she turns an places a nickel on the table. Straightening her hat she walks towards the door and into the buzz saw that is LA. Sure the pantry serves great food, but you can get great food at home. The Pantry is about more than food. The pantry is a door with no lock. Where that door leads depend on your mood of the day.

A restaurant like this was perfect for my family. I will definitely be going to save this restaurant's contact number for a reservation. They strive to provide us the best service that exceeds our expectations. The dining area was spacious! Great service and pricing as well. Thank you so much to all of you!
