Even though this restaurant originally popped up in San Francisco, they have closed all their doors and migrated south to where they were a better fit. Café Gratitude’s features an all-vegan menu and makes earnest assertions to only use completely organic, raw ingredients. With locations on Larchmont, Venice, and in the Arts District, they hit the best spots for vegan eats in the most hip neighborhoods around the city.
This popular sushi spot was created by sushi Chef Nozawa, and it is one of the most sought-after seafood restaurants in the city. There are locations all over the city, but head to the Brentwood location for a relaxed vibe. The fish is ridiculously fresh, so the rolls just melt in your mouth. It is known to be a minimalistic and traditional approach to sushi more in the style that it is eaten in Japan.
What would L.A. be without a magical land filled with endless brunch options? However, Urth is the definitive go-to organic coffee shop that also does amazing brunch (and lunch and dinner). Everything here is so good, diners can’t go wrong as they sit on the sun-soaked patios in the heart of Beverly Hills.
A classic taco joint like this one hidden on Pico on the Westside couldn’t get any better. Except with their $1.50 tacos every Wednesday…that’s right: Wednesday, not Taco Tuesday, in order to mix it up. Don Antonio’s has a quaint, enclosed back patio decorated with lights and colorful flags, perfect for sipping margaritas with friends.
For an ultra-fancy dinner in the heart of Beverly Hills, head to Mastro’s and order a massive, perfectly cooked steak complete with sides such as lobster gnocchi and gorgonzola mac ‘n’ cheese. This place is meant to be expensive, high-end, and overall amazing in every way. Perfect for celebrations, or you know, the casual celebrity dinner. So L.A.
