Mohawk Bend

Mohawk Bend

WHY In a vintage, 10,000-square-foot theater space, Mohawk Bend boasts an enviable selection of craft beers and one of the nicer patios in this part of town.

Picca

Picca

WHY Innovative creations from Ricardo Zarate, Food & Wine’s best New Los Angeles chef, 2011.

Thyme Cafe & Market

Thyme Cafe & Market

WHY Of all the great westside hybrid café/takeout/gourmet markets that have popped up recently, this is the first that doesn’t feel like a lunchtime splurge, with most sandwiches and salads priced less than $10.

Cole’s

Cole’s

WHY Classic cocktails and sandwiches in an old-timey setting in the heart of Downtown. And the speakeasy-like Varnish Bar in the back is one of the coolest watering holes in L.A.
