Catch | WEST HOLLYWOOD

Located on the corner of Melrose Avenue and San Vicente, Catch boasts one of the most stunning rooftops in the city, with an extensive seafood and sushi menu. This trendy eatery is a regular celebrity haunt, so expect to see your favorite stars while enjoying a tartare trio or my personal favorite, the sweet potato gnocchi.

zinque | VENICE + WEST HOLLYWOOD

This local favorite is equal parts office space and eatery. An open air patio invites guests to enjoy Zinque's 4 PM Happy Hour or alternatively sit pretty inside to enjoy a full food and beverage menu (also available outside.) Try their famous Le Bowl or my favorite, the Nicoise Salad.

Chateau Marmont | WEST HOLLYWOOD

If these walls could talk, this Sunset Boulevard hotel would tell the tales of Hollywood icons dating back to the days of Marilyn Monroe. The garden restaurant is one of the few spots to be considered an L.A. institution. But don't expect to pay a visit without a reservation.

THE NICE GUY | West Hollywood

No L.A. heatmap would be complete without a nod to The Nice Guy. Avoid the weekend crowd by going on a weekday and order the kale salad for a surprisingly flavorful vegetarian option. Don't leave without taking turns in their famous photo booth. Pics or it didn't happen.

cafe stella | silver lake

Cafe Stella is everything you want your neighborhood "hang" spot to be. Hipster models and Silver Lake locals occupy candlelit bistro tables filled with French fare. Grab a digestif (or two) at adjoining Bar Stella. The only thing better than a cozy dinner at Cafe Stella, is brunch the very next day.
