That means you’ll find the porno-king behind Hustler here almost every day for breakfast or lunch, about as often as you’ll catchLarry King at the Beverly Hills deli over bagels and lox. Larry Flynt tells the New York Times that this Four Seasons restaurant is his go-to for daytime dining out, citing its proximity to his office (the tall building on La Cienega famously embossed with his name) and his strict adherence to habit. While one of Flynt’s two aides-de-camp brushes his hair and presents him with a choice of toothpicks, Flynt is regularly found at central table 29, typically attended by the same waitress, who knows more about his salt requirements than her co-workers, as Flynt’s Bentley idles outside. Culina now even has a dish named for Flynt, and it’s surprisingly not from the crude-o bar, but a seafood salad with eggs, garbanzo beans, shrimp, and Dungeness crab. Hustler’s hustler says, “They at first tried to skimp on the seafood, and I told the chef: ‘Don’t even try it. Fill that bowl with goodies.’” He may be able to enjoy it too, if Governor Jerry Brown wasn’t calling again to interrupt the man’s meal.
