          You might check out Picca, one of the newer places in LA for Peruvian small plates.

            I'm a big fan of 320 South. (on La Brea) Their menu is small...but very good. They have wines (in machines) by the pour....or by the glass or bottle. And Edgar, the owner, could not be more welcoming. He's very knowledgeable about wine and loves to help with selections. A terrific little place.....

                      barbrix and animal are really good. i might get slack for this suggestion but if it's not too much of a trek i really like 3 drunken goats in montrose. small plates aren't tiny and i just have always enjoyed my food there. i wouldn't go there if it was a long drive, but it's close to me so i like it. i also recently tried LA ON by Parks bbq. loved it. small korean plates!

                            Definitely has the highest qpr of the bunch. If it were a Westside eatery, they could charge 3x as much.
