In the midst of Boyle Heights' burrito and taco land there's Gogo's Bistro, a year and a half old homespun American/soul food cafe from former homeless shelter worker Gogo Sweetwine plus family. While some locals don't quite know what to make of the place, others have taken to the eatery's country fried steak and five flavors of house-made cheesecake. Says Sweetwine, "All I've ever wanted in my life was to cook, to nourish people's spirits and stomachs. That's exactly what I'm doing here and what I'm going to keep doing as long as people let me."
