Montrealers visiting West Hollywood for a week!
We're excited about visiting LA, particularly West Hollywood, for an entire week, and would like your advice for restaurants and hotels you recommend. Merci beaucoup.
What kind of food are you interested in? Will you have a car to travel? What's your budget?
Here are some posts on West Hollywood, most recent first:
My favorite in WeHo is Night+Market (http://nightmarketla.com/). It's authentic Northern Thai street food. Affordable, delicious, spicy! Here are some posts, most recently first:
If you have a car and you like Japanese food, check out Little Osaka (Sawtelle Blvd. between Santa Monica Blvd. and Olympic Blvd., roughly). My favorite places there are Tsujita/Tsujita ANNEX for tsukemen and ramen and Kiriko for Sushi. Here's a thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/871694
Speaking of sushi, my favorite sushi restaurant in town, Shunji Japanese Cuisine, is on the border of Santa Monica and West Los Angeles. Too many threads to post, just do a search for Shunji.
Maybe Koreatown for Korean fare or the San Gabriel Valley for Chinese fare. Again, multitudes of threads.
For fun and food:
Rainbow Bar and Grill (sunset strip)
Laugh Factory/Comedy Store
Sapp's Coffee Shop
For a local place for breakfast, brunch or lunch, try Weho Bistro on La Cienega @ Holloway. Very French in concept, definitely very good and reasonably priced food for regular meals, not that special occasion.
Since you are going to be right in the neighborhood, and seeing as how L.A. is the home of "bigger than life BIG SCREEN dreams where nothing succeeds like excess" you really ought to eat one breakfast at The Griddle Cafe http://www.thegriddlecafe.com/ on Sunset Blvd. (their street location is so very apropos).
