Wolfgang Puck manages this culinary oasis in Bel Air, leaving seasonal California cuisine in the capable hands of chef Hugo Bolanos. Brunch and afternoon tea are both legendary at Hotel Bel-Air, for good reason. Splurge-worthy food and service are consistently good, and the setting is picturesque. The restaurant’s covered patio features floral accents, white-clothed tables, and warm wood panel flooring.

5. Canter's Delicatessen 419 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90048 (West Hollywood)

New York City has a lot of things that other cities don’t, like sidewalks perpetually lined with garbage, Michelin-rated restaurants that serve dinner at 2am, and authentic Jewish delis. Canter's Deli has been providing Angelenos with a little slice of New York hospitality since 1931. The 24-hour diner is a landmark institution that draws celebrities and plebs alike for smoked fish, chopped liver, pastrami on rye, matzo ball soup, and more. The bagels might not be as good as they are in New York, but that's not Canter's fault.
