The location: Deb driving, trying to phone Dex
This driving scene was shot on Beachwood Drive, in the Hancock Park district of Los Angeles.
To be more specific, Deb's car is headed north on Beachwood, with the camera looking at the west side of the street.
They are driving through the 200 block of N. Beachwood, just south of Beverly Blvd (where they filmed the scene of Deb & Dex speeding to rescue Vogel).
(This scene is very similar to a later driving scene where Deb tries to phone Vogel, only to learn later that Vogel has been kidnapped. That scene was shot in the same neighborhood, only two streets to the east.)
Here are a few specific examples from Deb's drive:
The house above is at 221 N. Beachwood Drive.
The house above is at 229 N. Beachwood Drive.
The house above is at 233 N. Beachwood Drive.

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?
A. I knew they had been filming in the Hancock Park area for this episode, and the homes look like Hancock Park.
So my only problem was finding the
exact street and block. And it wasn't easy. Hancock Park is
a fairly large area, when you have to look at every single house... But
using Google StreetView and Bing aerial photos, I eventually found the street from the second Deb driving scene, but this first one eluded me for a while longer. Eventually, going street-by-street, I found it.
