Just moved to West Hollywood.

I just moved to a loft in between Crescent Heights and Fairfax in West Hollywood. I am looking for the best:

1 Sushi that I can walk to.
2 The best Tai Food take out
3 Pizza (Although I just found out that Vito's delivers to me now, so I may be covered!)
4 Breakfast spot (already familiar with Eat Well. I like it, but any other suggestions would be appreciated)
5 Best restaurant in the area to go on a nice date.

Many thanks!

  1. 1. Horizon (Beverly & Orlando) - probably a 15 min walk
    2. None really, but Natalee or Tuk Tuk are okay
    3. VITO's!!!!!!!!!!!
    4. Hugo's, Irv's (for greasy breakfast buritos)
    5. La Boheme

    1. 1) It's hard to know where you can walk to since you don't mention where between C.H. and Fairfax you are. But one place to consider even if you can't walk is Hirozen on Beverly. Also there is a place on Yelp getting great reviews called Omi Sushi, haven't been there myself.

      3) In addition to Vito's, also check our Rocco's on WIlshire. Fantastic stuff there as well.

      4) I've heard horrible things about Eat Well, personally I would avoid. Well an area classic for you is The Griddle Cafe on Sunset, always packed and some consider overhyped, but I'm a huge fan. Swinger's is also a reliable go-to spot.

      5) Way too much to mention, search the board for West Hollywood, Beverly Blvd, 3rd Street, Melrose, etc..

      8385 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048

      Rocco's Italian Kitchen
      6335 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048

      8020 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048

      Griddle Cafe
      7916 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046

        Griddle Cafe is awesome. Just got breakfast there Saturday and the pancakes lasted as leftovers for like 3 days. Go early to avoid the waiting, that will make the experience much nicer for you.

        1. 4. in addition to hugo's, Ed's Coffee Shop on Robertson is no frills, down home or healthy breakfast fare. King's Road Cafe does a pretty good breakfast. I like The Little Next Door for a more expensive/datey breakfast/brunch, more casual urth cafe

          5. how much are you wanting to spend? ortolan, jar, pane e vino (i love the patio here), cynthia's if you want cobbler, foxtail was pretty good when i went last week, orso

          1. An excellent date restaurant, if you like French Asian fusion food, Celadon on 3rd Street just barely west of Fairfax. Beautiful interior space and a very creative drinks menu to go along with delicious and fairly priced food.

                What a shame. I found out that they closed their doors as of this past Saturday. I always worried that they didn't seem to have enough business when we were there.
