West Hollywood Next Week

Hi! I am a NY Chowhounder and will be in West LA next week-any good recs? Thanks!

  1. Any budgetary constraints? What about cuisine preferences? Travel restrictions? Preferences for ambience?

    West Hollywood and West LA both offer a myriad of Chow-worthy possibilities, as does closely neighboring environs like Beverly Hills, Hollywood and the Mid-City.

    Offering a few blind recs, how about Bar Marmont in the Chateau Marmont?

    Bin 8945 is currently on my to-try list.

    Also, Lucques is one of the tables in town.

        Thanks for your replies-no budgetary restrictions. Have been to Lucques and AOC so not looking for anything which is like that. My colleague would like to stay away from "Californian" cuisine as she likes more ethnic types of foods. Really appreciate all of your suggestions!

            Head down to Fairfax for Ethiopian at Rahel or Meals by Genet.

            Los Balcones de Peru on Vine.

            Sanamluang or Jitlada Thai for Thai food.

        1. West LA or West Hollywood?

          West LA - Nook, Literati, Drago, Toscana, Osteria Latini, Vincenti

          West Hollywood - AOC, Jar, Mozza, Pane e Vino...

            Has anyone been to Doug Arango in WHollywood recently? Where would you rank it next to AOC and Pane e Vino?

            1. re: Bria Silbert

              Arango's is way far from good value when comparing to the others mentioned on this post.
              AOC, Pane e Vino, Bin 8945, Jar, Mozza, Hatfield's(my addition), Pastis, Chameau for Moroccan food and Sona are some that have better food and way better environs. Depending on poster's needs, desires, economics, more suggestions might be offered.
