Restaurants in West Hollywood

Farm-to-table meets nose-to-tail at this casual New American bistro/butcher. The kitchen uses California-raised meats (including unusual cuts like pig’s ears and goat chops) and local produce, while the charcuterie, bread, and even the pickles are made in-house.

On Sunset Boulevard, wake up with a breakfast suited for champions, not carb-conscious celebrities. There are 18 over-sized hotcakes to choose from on the all-day menu, from basic buttermilk to sugar bombs topped with whipped cream, streusel, and caramel.

The city’s top new restaurant may not, at first, seem very L.A.: plain, boxy interior; “Don’t Fear the Reaper” on the stereo; and a menu of the pig-happy, nose-to-tail Dude Food you’d expect in Brooklyn or Chicago.

Part of the iconic Chateau Marmont hotel, this restaurant and cocktail lounge is a magnet for Hollywood’s A-list, with former patrons including Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, and the cast of Mad Men.

Affable chef-owner Eric Greenspan is passionate about both food and music, which he brings together at his trendy yet intimate restaurant in the heart of the Melrose Avenue shopping district.

Glossy diner

This casual French brasserie from chef David Myers resides amidst a sea of upscale clothing shops in West Hollywood. The dining space has cushioned banquette seating and hallways lined with food-centric blackboard art.


Agostino Sciandri and actor Robert De Niro teamed to open this Tuscan trattoria in 1997. Out front, there are cypress and olive trees, as well as an enclosed patio to protect against (rare) inclement weather.
