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.

Japanese tapas and sushi scene

French-inspired dishes in an atmosphere of understated style mark this Melrose Avenue eatery fast becoming one of Southern California’s top restaurants.


With its sultry, feng-shui-conscious design, flickering candlelight, and crowds of A-listers sipping sake martinis, Koi is perhaps better known for its glitzy scene than it is for its Japanese-inspired food.

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.
