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.

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.

This lively Italian restaurant from Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali, and Joseph Bastianich, is located next door to popular sister establishment, Pizzeria Mozza.

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.

Ago

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.

Harold Lloyd’s former West Hollywood carriage house now belongs to chef Suzanne Goin and sommelier Caroline Styne. A Spanish tiled roof protects the brick-walled dining room and patio, which the duo punctuates with plants.

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.
