In Los Angeles, the best drinking establishments and the best restaurants are often one and the same.

West Hollywood
Informazioni sul ristorante
The request “No photographs, no phone calls” printed on every menu at The Tower Bar strongly hints at its provenance as a wining-and-dining haven for Hollywood elites, but the bright, airy dining space plus poolside terrace is warm and welcoming with a fireplace, rose-colored lighting and numerous cozy nooks encased in walnut paneling. Its home at the historic Sunset Tower Hotel (est. 1929) on the Sunset Strip lends authenticity to the Golden-Age-of-Hollywood atmosphere. The soundtrack is jazz piano, the cocktails are classic and the curated wine list long on champagne and California labels. Menus leaning toward seasonal salads and smoothies plus shared-plate comfort food appeal to a discerning, wellness-minded clientele.

Informazioni sul ristorante
Serving up fine Venetian cuisine to a contemporary Californian crowd, the West Hollywood Cecconi’s (one of seven international locations) features plenty of plant-based, produce-forward and gluten-free dishes along with its signature handmade pasta. From the fresh minimalism of its carpaccios and tartare to the wood-and-charcoal baked gnocchis and eggplant parmigiana, the menu spans all diners’ desires. Another highlight is the wood-oven pizza with squash blossom, black truffle, and goat cheese. The cocktail menu features signature concoctions incorporating heady house-made tonics and nods to Italy with individual aperitivo, spritz and negroni lists. Cecconi’s is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, plus brunches on the weekend.

Menu abbastanza classico, ottimi il vitello tonnato e la cotoletta. Anche il salmone non era male

Hollywood
Informazioni sul ristorante
Many an L.A. bar evokes old Hollywood as a concept; at Musso & Frank Grill, open since 1919 and older than the Hollywood sign, it’s reality. The bar is independently considered one of the best in America, as are its martinis. In the now-relocated Back Room, William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Kurt Vonnegut wrote and drank in peace around the mahogany bar and leather booths. Patrons soak in the nostalgia while sipping a classic cocktail, and when hunger strikes it’s time to go old school. Red-jacketed servers still present dishes enjoyed a century ago—old-school steaks, chops and roasts, deli-style sandwiches and daily specials like corned beef and cabbage on a Tuesday and duck confit on a Sunday.

West Hollywood
Informazioni sul ristorante
Catch LA, which occupies a 12,000-square-foot rooftop space on Melrose in West Hollywood, is the latest offering from Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum, the “Kings of New York Nightlife.” The duo bring their signatures—Asian-influenced seafood, open-air dining and a vibrant club-meets-dinner scene—to a venue boasting a retractable roof and incredible views of the downtown skyline and Hollywood Hills. With an A-list clientele and Instagram-famous #HitMe cake, the vibe is young, pretty and anything-goes. Stop in for a New York-themed cocktail or a selection from an extensive list of high-end Scotches, sakes and cognacs, and order from the raw bar or opt for a full sit-down dinner. The Catch Roll (crab, salmon and miso-honey), Cantonese lobster and wagyu short rib tacos are among the most popular options.

Culver City
Informazioni sul ristorante
AKASHA, which opened in 2008 in the historic Hill Building in Culver City, is the brainchild of its namesake and chef-owner Akasha Richmond. The self-taught phenom championed seasonal and sustainable cuisine before it was cool, and she brings to AKASHA’s menus global influences from Hawaii and Mexico to Italy and India. Richmond’s background in art and yoga infuses a touch of hippie chic to the venue’s steel, concrete and brick structure. Those scoring a seat at the bar might order a fresh juice cocktail (CBD is an optional add-in) along with organic fries and street-food snacks from the afternoon menu. Weekend brunches come with special cocktails like the farmers market sangria.

Informazioni sul ristorante
Wolfgang Puck’s flagship restaurant is nothing short of exquisite. Every ingredient, from a humble summer squash or heirloom tomato to the world’s finest caviar and truffles, gets treated with the utmost reverence. The multi-course California Tasting Menu for the whole table turns dinner into an unforgettable occasion, but locals and visitors might also stop in for a playfully named cocktail (the establishment might exude sophistication but it’s not above making guests order an I’m So Sexy or Hot Legs) and some bar bites. The smoked salmon pizza is a Spago icon that never leaves the menu.

Informazioni sul ristorante
Perch LA bills itself “an elevated resting place,” a reference to its unforgettable setting on the 15th and 16th floors of the landmark Pershing Square Building downtown. From its open-air lounge, warmed by fireplaces and fire pits, patrons take in 360-degree views of the city that change as the sun sets. Meanwhile the vibe of Perch LA transforms from bohemian Parisian bistro with a jazz soundtrack to a cool late-night cocktail bar slash club. In between is an aperitif hour, which along with the drinks list sprinkled with rare cognacs and French cordials, is a nod to the bar’s Old World inspiration. The brie en croute and pork belly and watermelon skewer both go nicely with Paris-inspired cocktails heavy on citrus, spice and herbaceous notes.

Toluca Lake
Informazioni sul ristorante
Serving authentic Italian fare near the studios in Toluca Lake, Ca Del Sole is a weekday lunch hot spot, and on weekends its sunny brick terrace is a delightful destination for brunch with Bellinis. Special brunch drinks come with complimentary refills. An all-night happy hour encourages a cheerful atmosphere for enjoying Italy-inspired versions of classic cocktails like the margarita Disaronno and Aperol daiquiri. Both owner and chef are Italy-born and trained, so expect traditional dishes with contemporary twists. The mezzelune di zucca baruca (pumpkin-stuffed pasta with a butter and sage sauce) and an authentic ossobuco are highly recommended.

Beverly Hills
Informazioni sul ristorante
The sleek and sophisticated steakhouse, CUT by Wolfgang Puck, has its walls adorned with custom art and photography, an open kitchen and sleek dining room. Its home is the historic (circa 1929) Beverly Wilshire hotel at Wilshire and Rodeo, where CUT holds its own as an integral element of an icon. The menu of course features the highest-quality beef, expertly sourced from Nebraska and Idaho to Japan and Australia. Hungry patrons can order whole roasts for the table and steaks of all sizes slow-grilled over oak and mesquite. The bar holds all the spirits (seriously, all of them) and the wine list stretches across pages and pages. Diners who want to dial back on the excess can order from the lounge menu.

Brentwood
Informazioni sul ristorante
Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne (also owners of Lucques) bring their signature farmers market showcasing cuisine to Brentwood at Tavern. The dinner menu comes categorized into small (green salads, lamb meatballs, Spanish fried chicken), medium (grain salads, skewers, shellfish in broth) and large (salmon, duck, short ribs and steak frites), and there are shareable vegetable sides special enough to hold their own as vegetarian options. The cocktail menu leans toward culinary ingredients: there’s cucumber, arugula and jalapeno in the Goddess and guava, yuzu and maple in the Crying Tree. Happy hour, daily in the Blue Room, offers great deals on drinks and snacks.

Informazioni sul ristorante
Can the Japanese-Peruvian fusion cuisine created by superstar chef Matsuhisa still be considered unique when it’s launched a global empire of over 40 restaurants and hotels? Does it matter? Hit Nobu's West Hollywood venue and enjoy selections from a menu rich in creamy-spicy-crispy dishes and Nobu-style tacos and cocktails. Few places do sushi and sashimi better. The bar tapas menu is available nightly until late, with plates perfect beside a hot sake or spicy acai martini.

Informazioni sul ristorante
For intimate fine-dining Italian in Santa Monica, make a reservation at Via Veneto on Main Street. Candlelight and twinkling crystal chandeliers promise pure romance, all augmented by cathedral-inspired art work and a stunning stone floor. A comprehensive wine list makes up for the lack of a full bar, and you'll certainly want to raise a glass to an exquisite meal of Italian classics like cacio e pepe, amatriciana, bolognese, or special dishes featuring veal, octopus or langoustines.
