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.
YSABEL | WEST HOLLYWOOD
Pronounced like the name, this West Hollywood spot is the perfect date night destination. Their proud cocktail list gets people in the door, while their small plate faves keep folks seats. For a secret sipping spot, climb to the top of their outdoor stairs to find a little peace and quiet.
