‘Discoveries’

Picca

EatLA-1903

WHY Innovative creations from Ricardo Zarate, Food & Wine’s best New Los Angeles chef, 2011. WHAT The new descendant of Zarate’s ultra-modest Mo-Chica is a trend-setting cantina whose robata bar items look Japanese but taste Peruvian (skewered grilled scallops painted with aji amarillo pepper) and whose ceviche bar garnishes flash-marinated fish and sashimi-like tiradito with [...]

Churros Calientes

EatLA-1839

WHY Do one thing and do it well. In this case, it’s churros. WHAT The food is a wash, but the churros, served warm from the fryer, are to die for. These are nothing like the Mexican churros that dominate L.A.—these are Spanish churros. They’re smaller, denser and more crisp, served with toppings and fillings [...]

The Luggage Room

EatLA-1799

WHY La Grande Orange’s casual sibling is a busy pizza specialist in the same historic Pasadena train station.

Xoia Vietnamese

EatLA-1796

Osteria Mozza

EatLA-98

WHY The mozzarella tasting plate, grilled octopus with potatoes, celery and lemon, orecchiette pasta with sausage and swiss chard, pan-roasted sea trout with Umbrian lentils—in fact, pretty much everything. WHAT The frenzy that built around the opening of this joint venture between Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich and Nancy Silverton may have subsided, but getting a [...]

Thyme Cafe & Market

EatLA-1690

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. WHAT Regulars come here for Chinese chicken salad with fried won tons and sugar snaps; tomato, mozzarella and pesto sandwiches; and [...]

CaCao Mexicatessen

EatLA-1587

WHY Warmth, a strong sense of neighborhood and a serious approach to food—and, more importantly, to Mexican chocolate in all its forms. WHAT The name was a poor choice—everyone stumbles over it—but everything else about this richly colorful café/deli/market succeeds. You order at the counter to eat in the café or out on the patio, [...]

Yxta Cocina Mexicana

EatLA-1332

WHY For 40 years, Jesse Gomez’s family has been turning out ‘careful-the-plate-is-hot’ Mexican food at El Arco Iris, an old-school hub of Highland Park life. Now Gomez has created a new-school, loft-like place serving regional Mexican dishes, as well as twenty-some tequilas and what may well be the best margarita Downtown. WHAT This is not [...]

Hungry Cat

EatLA-250

WHY A pristine raw bar, impeccable New England seafood dishes and a smart wine list—and it’s all served until midnight, with the raw bar open until 1 a.m. WHAT Always full of hungry hep cats sharing oversize seafood platters, this glass-and-metal bistro may not be L.A.’s most elegant seafood restaurant, but it might be its [...]

Beachwood BBQ & Brewing

EatLA-1902

WHY Seal Beach’s legendary smokehouse and beer bar has finally crossed county lines. WHAT Many consider Beachwood to be the region’s top beer bar, a place where the craft movement gained legs and hopheads were born. Now there’s even more Beachwood to go around with its new downtown Long Beach location. The menu remains the [...]
