1. 643 North 643 N Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90012 (Downtown)

Fennel sausage pizza and osso bucco ravioli are just the start of this off-the-charts eatery in Chinatown. Get a few brews -- it IS a gastropub, after all!

2. Philippe 8620 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90211 (Beverly Hills)

This open-then-closed-then-opened again place is doling out delicious Chinese grub and something called "nine seasons spicy prawns". You want that... trust us.

3. Honeycut 819 S Flower St, Los Angeles, CA 90017 (Downtown)

Honeycut isn't just your standard, trendy, underground cocktail bar -- it's also literally situated under the ground. Built below downtown's Flower Street, the night spot tends to straddle the line between rowdy, boisterous dance club and upscale, craft-cocktail dispensary. The bar's sub-sidewalk lair is divided into two rooms: a Manhattan-esque dark-wooded drinking space, offering vintage pool tables and an extensive list of potent house concoctions, followed by a cavelike dance hall with a smaller bar for bottled beers, and a floor built entirely of flashing rainbow lights. If you're not looking to dance, we suggest you limit your stay to the first room -- the usual crowds are not exactly known for remaining subdued on the dance floor.

4. Orsa & Winston 122 W 4th St, Los Angeles, CA 90013 (Downtown)

Orsa & Winston's is a fixed-menu-only joint, which Asian-American eats like rice w/ uni and Pecorino cream.

5. Stumptown Coffee 806 S Santa Fe Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90021 (Downtown)

LA... you've got your own Stumptown now, so you can stop being secretly jealous of all your PDX friends.
