Valerie Confections

EatLA-1660

WHY Four words: Blum’s Coffee Crunch Cake.

For many Angelenos, the [...]

The Edison

EatLA-1389

WHY To take a glamorous step back in time—and for the double-take you’ll experience the first time you spot the Absinthe Fairy. WHAT This nostalgic cocktail bar reignites 1920s elegance and romance in an unbelievable multi-level space that was L.A.’s first private power plant. Each night brings new revelries, from live music to burlesque, but [...]

Nickel Diner

EatLA-1298

WHY Bacon maple doughnuts. WHAT This retro diner at Main and 5th (5th being called ‘the Nickel’ by the tougher locals in this hardscrabble neighborhood) has won local fame for bringing L.A. the bacon doughnut. But that’s not the only thing worth eating here. Come for any of the very good breakfast dishes, like the [...]

Primera Taza

WHY A place to hang in bitchin’ Boyle Heights. WHAT This funky, rather cramped coffeehouse is emblematic of the gentrification of Boyle Heights (in case you didn’t know, it’s the new Echo Park, which in turn was the new Silver Lake only yesterday), thanks in part to the newish Metro station out front. It has [...]

Barbrix

EatLA-1508

WHY A bohemian-chic indoor/outdoor wine bar with spot-on Mediterranean-inspired small plates. WHAT Interesting, well-priced wines from California to Croatia are the centerpiece of this house-turned-festive wine bar. The food’s just as good, from cheese and charcuterie samplers to flavorful farmers’ market vegetable salads and meaty plates of pork belly, Moroccan-style lamb chops and wild boar [...]

Starry Kitchen

EatLA-1652

WHY Starry Kitchen spices up the Downtown lunch scene with a modern, irreverent approach to Vietnamese-influenced cooking. WHAT California Plaza is a little less corporate with the success of freewheeling Starry Kitchen, which started as an underground restaurant in the owner’s apartment. You pick a protein (free-range lemongrass chicken, the famed crispy tofu balls, spicy [...]

Bacaro

WHY Because you’re bored with most wine-bar offerings and tired of paying through the nose for a glass of wine.

Church & State

EatLA-1531

WHY The first-rate execution of French bistro classics, at more than fair prices. WHAT This too-loud, brick-walled restaurant lost chef Walter Manzke, who made it an L.A. culinary destination, but so far the kitchen seems to be running like a top without him. They’re still making his charcuterie, procuring pristine oysters, preparing a mean bouillabaisse [...]
