Dizengoff is closed. Tempo and La ve li in the Valley are ok. Are you looking for something specific? Shula & Esther's on Fairfax has Moroccan and Yemenite dishes from Israel, Grill express (?) on the corner of Rosewood and Fairfax has Israeli and Iraqi-Israeli dishes. Carnival on Woodman north of Ventura is a Lebanese restaurant with a huge Israeli clientele. Many of the Armenian places have middle-eastern dishes, Manoush on Santa Monica near Normandie has a quite a good selection. Is a Hekhsher important? There's also a great little Lebanese place with killer t'hina, salat-khatzilim (moutabel/baba ghanoush), felafel etc. on Westwood Blvd just north of Santa Monica called Sunnin. For some of the salads, try Falafel King in Westwood (turkish salad, Israeli salad, etc) and Mi ve Mi (Mi & Mi) on the SE corner of Rosewood and Fairfax.
There used to be some excellent Israeli places in town, ha-Pundak on 3rd for one where Sofi's is now. I hope these are helpful.
Try Moishe's Restaurant at the Farmer's Market in Los Angeles . . .

I really enjoy the food at Hummus Bar -- and the service is extraordinary! If you sit at the bar, you will have the attention of all the servers behind you and all the "chefs" in front of you! They often give us new items to taste and waaay more food than even our eyes can swallow.
We have celebrated occasions at the tables (with a large group) and they are quite capable of keeping up with us. In fact, they are usually ahead of us so that we never have to request anything. Also, when we have had young-'uns with us, they go out of their way to pay attention to our additional needs.
I have also done carry-out for a large group with Hummus Bar and found them to be extremely accommodating and generous, tossing in extra olives or pickles! I do appreciate their remarkable service!
