Eat-LA


Tuk Tuk

Tuk Tuk

WHY Beef salad makes a light summer supper, and curries are also satisfying. WHAT One of the best Thai options on the westside, with clean, updated versions of favorite Thai dishes, served in a pleasant Asian-style décor. 8875 W. Pico Blvd., Pico-Robertson, 310.860.1872, tuktukla.com. L & D daily. MC, V, AE. Type: Restaurant Region: Westside: [...]

Gjelina

Gjelina

WHY The kitchen knows when to take a fish off the grill and how to bring out the best in each dish-without overcomplicating it. The It spot of the moment in Venice. WHAT This lively (i.e. noisy) Abbot Kinney hot spot has a ’70s Big Sur vibe but a decidedly more modern menu and a [...]

Domenico

Domenico

WHY Elegant Italian dishes in a relaxed Silver Lake sidewalk café with excellent service. WHAT Tiny and white inside, with a spacious front patio, this neighborhood restaurant is culinarily ambitious for the neighborhood. Handmade pastas-think lasagne with oxtails, beet tortelli or Peruvian blue-potato ravioli-and hearty, creative mains like braised rabbit make it a sophisticated alternative [...]

Pitfire Pizza Company

Pitfire Pizza Company

WHY Neopolitan-style pizzas (try the burrata), well-filled panini and good salads, plus delivery in the Downtown zone bounded by Alameda, Figueroa, Temple and Olympic. WHAT Although it’s a sit-down café, and a perfectly fine one, this is a handier place to know about for takeout and delivery, especially because it can get mobbed at lunchtime. [...]

Craft

Craft

WHY Servers who make you feel like Trump, special-occasion food (veal sweetbreads with kumquats, rabbit saddle with wild cherries) and a Wall Street atmosphere for those times when laid back L.A. just won’t do. WHAT Part of Tom Colicchio’s New York-based mini-empire, this elegant place has a design-your-own menu where everything is a la carte-at [...]

Heath Ceramics

Heath Ceramics

WHY We know Angelenos who used to plan weekends in San Francisco around a trip to Heath Ceramics in Sausalito. Now the shrine has come to us. WHAT A partnership between Heath and longtime L.A. architect and potter Adam Silverman, proprietor of Atwater Pottery, the airy store includes gallery space for ceramic artists as well [...]

Library Alehouse

Library Alehouse

WHY For dozens of beers on tap, mainly Californian, Belgian and German brews, which you can try in four-ounce, five-shot sample flights. WHAT This aptly named bar has a polished professor vibe with better-than-average bar food: chipotle shrimp quesadillas, a solid build-your-own beef, turkey, veggie or salmon burger, and salmon fish ‘n chips that tastes [...]

Pho Pioneer

Pho Pioneer

WHY The Pioneer rice special, a combination of crispy minced shrimp cake, slabs of grilled marinated pork, delicate steamed egg loaf and a salad garnish, has customers returning again and again. WHAT The small city of Artesia may be famed for Little India, in which this Vietnamese place sits, but in fact it’s as multinational [...]

Artisanal L.A.

Artisanal L.A.

The same folks who’ve brought us the LA Street Food Fest are back with a new event that looks mighty promising. Called Artisanal LA, it’s a celebration of local food and drink, often from micro-producers, such as Flying Pie Man, Spun City Organics, Nibble Bit Tabby Brewery, Silverlake Farms and Chicks With Knives’ Perishable Pickle [...]

Starling Diner

Starling Diner

WHY Neighborhood charm with gourmet soul. WHAT Surrounded by a quaint neighborhood of historic homes and breezy apartments, this bright, quirky café has become a hub of local life. (Come in alone and you can sit at a long communal table with soon-to-be friends.) For breakfast, try the mascarpone-stuffed French toast or the sweet and [...]
