OUR WMM CURATED GUIDE FOR YOUR VISIT

AUBREY MOZINO's RESTAURANT PICKS

OUR (P)RESIDENT FOODIE BREAKS DOWN HER FAVE SPOTS CLOSEBY

Musso and Frank’s Grill

(6667 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028)

Check out old school, Hollywood glamour at this famous LA joint. Prices have definitely risen since they opened in 1919, so consider this place a bit of a splurge or just swing by their bar for a classic martini. 

Lemonade

(626 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004)

Get a taste of California cuisine at this casual, counter style restaurant then take a stroll down the super cute street of Larchmont and grab ice cream at Salt and Straw! 

 

Salt and Straw

(240 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004)

This Portland, OR based ice cream shop has some of the most unique, seasonal flavors you’ve ever tried. They change every month but a couple past faves were Goat Cheese Marionberry Habanero and Birthday Cakes and Blackberries. 

 

Thai Town

(5273 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027)

LA has some of the best food you can find outside of Thailand! Stop into any one of the Thai restaurants in this area and we bet you’ll agree with us! (Special shoutouts to Ruen Pair and Thai Patio!)

 

Osteria LaBuca

(5210 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038)

Hop in a quick Uber and check out this mid-range, Italian comfort food spot. 

Guelaguetza Restaurant

(3014 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90006)

A bit of a drive from The Broadwater but this is a great spot for authentic Oaxacan Mexican food! 

WHERE YOU MIGHT SPOT PROGRAMMING DIRECTOR WHIT SPURGEON

ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE FROM THE BROADWATER

Most evenings, the taco truck across the street by the gas station (we think it's called Chiquis) serves up the freshest, inexpensive selection of Mexican street eats.

Nat's Thai Food

(1123 Vine St # 11, Los Angeles, CA 90038)

Around the corner on Vine, Nat's lacks in ambiance, but the food is excellent and the prices are right.

Eat This Cafe

(6547 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038)

Down the street on Santa Monica (heading west) is a good sandwich/coffee option with good pastries, too. Just next to the Hudson Theater.

Rao's Hollywood

(1006 Seward St, Los Angeles, CA 90038)

A piece of old NYC history (but the Hollywood location promises to be even tastier)! Not cheap, but not ridiculous.

AND... A FEW MORE SPOTS TO EAT

BECAUSE WE LOVE FOOD AS MUCH AS WE LOVE FILM

Jones

(7205 Santa Monica Boulevard West Hollywood, CA 90046)

Classic American. Great bar. Lively Hollywood joint. Never fails.

The Formosa Cafe

(7156 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046)

Right across the street from Jones, is the remodeled Hollywood treasure

that is The Formosa Cafe, to cure a hankering for inventive Chinese food.

Gwen - The Butcher Shop

(6600 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028)

Trigger warning: Carnivores only. The restaurant is a pretty penny,

but the butcher shop within serves up affordable sandwiches

with deli cuts (and all the fixins) nowhere else to be found in the city. 

Tendergreens

(6290 Sunset Blvd Hollywood, CA 90028)

Yes, it's a chain, but sometimes you just want a big, dependable

salad (and olive loaf). There are many throughout the city,

but the closest one to the theater is on Vine and Sunset

(a few blocks north).

Hugo's

(8401 Santa Monica Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90069)

Extensive menu of super healthy eats from around the world,

with a leaning towards Latin cuisine.  

Salt's Cure

(1155 N. Highland Ave Los Angeles, CA 90038)

Farm to table deliciousness that California does well. Open all day. 

Electric Karma

(8222 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048)

Authentic Indian food with a nice atmosphere.
Great for groups.

Bowery Bungalow

(4156 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029)

The restaurant sits at the end of the Santa Monica Blvd.

(just before Sunset Junction) and serves up really inventive takes on Mediterranean classics. Pricey, but so worth it!

M Cafe

(7119 Melrose Ave, Hollywood, CA 90046)

Healthy. Like macrobiotic diet healthy. Great grab and go items.

Next to Tatsu. 

Tatsu

(7111 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046)

Ramen that is anything but the packaged, salty

treat you existed on in college.

Bossa Nova

(7181 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90046)

Farm to table Brazilian barbecue and then some.

Perfect for late night cravings.

Weho Bistro

(1040 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069)

Every single thing on this Provencal French menu is divine. Dine in only!

EP/LP

(603 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069)

Southeast Asian cuisine meets American lounge.

EP is the restaurant. LP is the rooftop bar that serves small

plates from the restaurant. Sort of a scene, but tasty all the same.
