Open: Monday-Saturday 11am-2am, Sunday 12pm-11pm. Best: All Star Role, Hot Night Role and their Spicy Crunchy Tuna. Note: Yelp Reviews are across the board, but having lived around the corner from this Restaurant for the past year and a half and have always enjoyed eating here (which is at least once a week). Note: The original Sushi Dan is located in Studio City at 11056 Ventura Blvd. Studio City, CA 91604, opening hours are: Monday-Thursday 11am-11pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-12am and Sunday from 12pm-10pm. The menu is exactly the same and everything is of a very high quality.

 

——————————

  • BOA Steakhouse – 9200 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood – Open: Sunday-Monday 5:30pm-10:30pm, Tuesday-Wednesday 5:30pm-11pm, Thursday-Saturday 5:30pm-12am – Best: Dinner on a Friday or Saturday night, fantastic, unbeatable ambiance and the only way to start a class A night out – Note: Bar gets extremely busy.

——————————

  • Wood Ranch BBQ and Grill – 189 The Grove Drive, Los Angeles – Open daily at 11:30am – Best on a weeknight for dinner – Note: Must try their Mac & Cheese.

——————————

——————————

  • BLT Steak - 8720 Sunset Blvd, West Hollwood, CA 90069 – Open Monday – Thursday 6pm-10:30pm, Friday – Saturday 6pm-11:30pm and sunday 5:30pm – 10pm. Best: Any night – Note: I’ve only visited the Miami restaurant on Ocean Dr. but by all accounts the Sunset Blvd restaurant offers the same cool atmosphere along with amazingly good food and service. From the complimentary Popovers to the carrot cake for dessert, dinner at BLT is a definite try.

——————————

  • Jitlada – 5233 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90027 – Open Monday 5pm-10:30pm, Tuesday-Thursday & Sunday 11am-10:30pm, Friday – Saturday 11am-11pm Best: The menu here is massive, but that being said, I’ve never once had something here I’ve not enjoyed. Growing up with an aunt from Thailand, I’ve been spoilt by authentic thai cuisine, and in my 6 years living in LA, this restaurant is by far the closest to my aunts cooking growing up. Note: Seating is on a first come first serve basis, so you can end up waiting a while during the weekend. Also, the kitchen is quite small so plan for a long dinner, eating family style with dishes coming out as they are prepared.

——————————

  • Palihouse Courtyard Brasserie – 8465 Holloway Dr., West Hollywood, CA 90069 – Open Daily 8am – 3pm and Tuesday – Saturday 6pm – Close – Best: For a quiet lunch spot during the week, or for a British style brunch on Sundays you can’t go wrong here. If you want a livelier atmosphere for dinner check out this place during the weekend for dinner and head to the bar after dinner to continue the evening with drinks whilst listing to the live DJ. – Note: I came here to celebrate NYE and even on such a busy night with a set menu the food, drinks and atmosphere couldn’t have been better. An absolutely fantastic venue with great service.

——————————

  • Inn of the Seventh Ray – 128 Old Topanga Canyon Rd., Topanga Canyon, CA 90290 – Open Monday-Friday 11:30am -3pm, 5:30pm -10pm, Saturday 10:30am-3pm, 5:30pm-10pm and Sunday 9:30am-3pm, 5:30pm-10pm Best: Romantic date night with your significant other, Sunday brunch or a quiet lunch with out of town guests during the week. Note: The food is amazing but the service can be absolutely terrible at times. Brunch on a weekend tends to be the worst, but you have to promise to not give up on the restaurant.

——————————

  • Bandera - 11700 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90025 – Open Monday-Tuesday & Sunday 5pm-10pm and Wednesday – Saturday 5pm to 11pm Best: Any night, this restaurant is just plain hot. Amazing food and an unbeatable atmosphere make this restaurant the perfect date night spot or after work restaurant with friends. You must try their Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, and for non-fish lovers, the Bandera-Style Roasted Chicken.

——————————

Bars:

  • Hemingways Lounge – 6356 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028 – Open Tuesday – Saturday 9pm – 2am Best: On a Saturday night but I must warn you, the girl on the door is brutal so you need to get on the list. Best way is to try coming during the week on a quieter night and get friendly with the bouncers and door staff. Well worth the trouble once you get inside. Basically, this place looks like a party spot disguised as a library.

——————————

  • Winstons – 7746 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90046 – Best: On a weekend, but the bar is very small and reaches capacity quickly so arrive early or expect a long wait. Winston’s is a small, low-key bar that isn’t overly impressive but definitely has a lot of class. Inside, the decor shoots for the classic 1920’s American vibe and consists of black leather benches, ornate oil paintings, lots of small mirrors, and a small vintage crystal chandelier at the center of the bar. Note: Winston’s and Bar Lubitsch are neighbors so make sure to check out both when you go for a visit!

——————————

  • Bar Lubitsch – 7702 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90046 – Open: Monday – Friday 6pm-2am, Saturday 7pm-2am and Sunday 8pm-2am Best: Saturday Night. Note: The bar is small and often gets very busy on a weekend, so arrive early or expect a line.

——————————

  • The Roger Room – 370 N. La Cienega Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069 Open: Monday-Friday 6pm-2am, Saturday 7pm-2am and Sunday 8pm-2am. Jared Meisler and Sean MacPherson (Bar Lubitsch) opened La Cienega’s first speakeasy, The Roger Room. Meisler and MacPherson renovated the interior to create a Sasha Petraske-esque speakeasy fit with dimly-lit booths, mixologists in black vests and suspenders, and stained-glass windows plus murals depicting circus themes spanning the wall opposing the bar. Best: Any night you fancy a true cocktail made by a true mixologist. Note: Call ahead to reserve a table as the bar is really, incredibly small.
