After making the rounds in this busy hot-spot corridor, living room vibes and an eclectic menu are exactly what you need.

Sirena Santa Monica

map

Newly added!

This is the all-day restaurant The Georgian — and those perfect ocean views — always needed. Leaning Italian with a Los Angeles sensibility, the menu matches the stunning décor and seaside vibes. Pretty salads, handmade pastas, lots of seafood, and fabulously creative desserts (coconut budino!) are just the start.

NAMOO Korean BBQ Marina Del Rey

map

Newly added!

It’s a perfect spot to grab a bite before or after seeing a flick at the Villa Marina Marketplace Mall (the restaurant is located right next to the AMC theater) or just when you’re craving some tasty bulgogi, galbi, and all the banchan.

Newly added!

Located right beneath the Venice sign, this is the kind of place to leave that boardwalk bustle behind. Yellowtail crudo, sticky rice sticks, tonkatsu Brussels sprouts, chicken katsu curry — these make a great night better. Cocktails follow suit, and globally sourced wines and low-ABV drinks abound.

Layla Santa Monica

map

It’s not every day you can eat Jordanian-inspired short rib kebabs, lamb-stuffed grape leaves straight from grandma’s recipe box, and kibbeh with a view of the Santa Monica Pier in the background. If anything, stop for a Mata Hari milk punch made with chai-infused sweet vermouth, and stay for the knafeh.

Burgette Santa Monica

Because Burgette deals in perfect smash burgers, topped with drippy Dijon sauce and melting aged Mimolette cheese. Dripping in copper, gold, burgundy red, and wood accents, this burger joint in downtown Santa Monica feels like you just wandered off a street in Paris, and we’re here for it.

Kushiba Echo Park

map

We’re all for picture menus, or in this case, outlines of skewers that chef David Schlosser (of Shibumi) creates. The izakaya menu is full of “sticks,” from skewers of lotus root to an elongated smelt, or even threaded pieces of Wagyu. Order a few, order a ton, or let the chef choose for a stick-frenzy omakase. Sake is a must.

danbi Koreatown

map

Among the trailblazers reinterpreting what a modern Korean restaurant can be, this bright spot in Koreatown is streamlined and slick, with inventive dishes made with familiar flavors and exciting cocktails to match. Think scallop pancakes and meltingly good pork jowl to a dreamy riff on the French classic Mont Blanc dessert. The kimchi mule (made with soju) kicks.

Old Lightning Marina Del Rey

map

It’s clandestine, it’s fun, and it’s hidden inside the buzziest Italian restaurant in Venice (that’d be Scopa Italian Roots). This is one of the best bars in America, so take a seat and lean into rare spirits and incredible cocktails that eschew trends — it’s really all about the craft, plus a vintage spirit or two.

Coucou – West Hollywood West Hollywood

The little Venice bistro goes bigger in WeHo, thanks to a bigger kitchen (and menu) and outdoor patio. Of course, you still get an excellent martini, mussels marinières, steak frites, and soft serve sundaes. Just more choices, more joie de vivre.

Cipriani Beverly Hills Beverly Hills

map

Iconic for a reason, the Beverly Hills location feels every bit as swank as others around the country, from the white-jacketed servers and tableside presentations to the famous carpaccio and Bellinis.

Union @ Compound Long Beach (Zaferia)

map

Located inside a community art and gathering space, there are some beautiful things happening here. Think: riffs on pancit, papas bravas (made with cassava), and bao buns (filled with fried chicken). Wildly inventive cocktails are not to be missed, like the Tropic, made with pisco and white pepper pandan syrup.

Prima Donna Culver City

map

No neighborhood can have too many options for bubbly pizzas, saucy meatballs, and fun cocktails. Leaning on the Sicilian side of Italy, the menu at The Shay hotel restaurant has all that and more, party vibe included.

Jilli Koreatown

map

Some things just go together, like chicken thigh-filled bao, fried rice cakes with gochujang, and Korean fried chicken wings with skin-contact orange wines, Korean beers, and age-old plum liqueur. That is: If you didn’t think they complemented each other before, you do now.

Cosette Wine Bar Studio City

map

Go for a few new houseplants, stay for the Champagne or Txakolina rosé by the glass, steak tartare, and crunchy celery salad. Or vice versa: Go for the snacks at this charming wine bar, and grab a fiddle leaf fern to go. Since it’s located on the second floor of Rolling Greens, you can have it both ways.

STAY. Zero Proof Cocktail Lounge Chinatown

map

Whether you’re living a booze-free lifestyle or are just sober-curious, this Chinatown bar serves zero-proof cocktails only. Paying homage to its location (and current vibe), the drinks are named for the Chinese zodiac, like the savory Dragon, an elevated green juice with a touch of spice, and the Ox, made with a non-alcoholic bourbon.

Ladyhawk West Hollywood

map

The mezze platter at La Peer Hotel’s Lebanese-inspired restaurant has party written all over it. The assemblage of dips — garlic labneh with pickled eggplant, wood-roasted matbucha, and hummus topped with spicy sambal, to name a few — centered by big poofs of flatbread can start or end any night in WeHo. Everything, even the entrées, are meant to be shared.

Chulita tacos

Chulita Venice combines colorful Mexican fare with a sense of community, which carries over to its West Adams location. While the menu pays tribute to Oaxacan foodways, the light and bright space is filled with Mexico City influences. When you need mezcal and Tequila cocktails, barbacoa tacos, and cauliflower rice arroz verde, you’ve come to the right place.

The Brothers Sushi Culver City Culver City

map

An offshoot of a longstanding Valley favorite, this very modern sushi spot is a gem along Culver Boulevard. Stop for excellent chirashi bowls at lunch, or sit along the sushi bar for pristine traditional nigiri and creative reinterpretations from the attentive chefs. Note the aged fish lockers; that’s why everything tastes so dang good.

PLANTA, Brentwood Brentwood

map

Leave it to chef David Lee to reengineer plant-based cuisine for a high-energy, well-heeled crowd. Planta unleashes its meatless brilliance in the shape of a wild pan-Asian menu, where the sushi rolls and wok-fried noodles are as craveable as “the real thing.” Don’t sleep on the cocktails, either.

Book Now

La Bettola Di Terroni Larchmont Larchmont

map

From the Terroni family of restaurants, this little Larchmont gem hits just right with things like vitello tonnato, mortadella, and burrata pizzas, and a really great linguine vongole. You may be torn between the tiramisu and cannoli, so we’re here to tell you: just get both.

BLVD Steak Sherman Oaks

map

Much like its siblings Taisho and Casita, BLVD is sleek and modern, and even in a sea of restaurants along Ventura Boulevard, somehow just what the Valley needed. Big cuts of beef, all the requisite sides, perfectly chilled and shaken cocktails — it’s all here.
