Looking for hip/lively restaurants in LA
I'm looking for recommendations of hip/cool restaurants in LA. Places that are fun, chic and full of life - nothing sleepy. Anywhere in WeHo, Hollywood or the Westside. Price is not really a consideration.
Chaya Brasserie ~ Asian-French-Eclectic ~ West Hollywood
Chinois on Main ~ Asain-Calif-French ~ Santa Monica
Koi - Japanese - West Hollywood - I've never gone there, but I've heard & read many times that it has that reputation.
Wilshire and Beechwood.
Although the outside bar at Beechwood is the real scene as opposed to the inside restaurant.
2454 Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA 90404
822 Washington Blvd., Venice, CA 90292
Went to BoHo last night- Sunset and Vine at the Cinerama Dome/Archlight corner.
Food was fab! Staff was fab - even had desert on the house! It's lively and fun. If you don't get enough drive up a couple of blocks to Hollywood Blvd. It close to Grauman's and the Kodak Theater.
It's a gastropub so, make sure you try their beers. I had a framboise - didn't taste like a beer at all but, it is! Also tried a dark chocolate stout and their hard apple cider :)
