1. Gracias Madre 8905 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, CA 90069 (West Hollywood)

You’ll say gracias to this madre of a vegan restaurant when you taste chilaquiles, enchiladas, pozole, and other Mexican-inspired dishes made with organic, plant-based ingredients. No matter how much you live and die for carne asada, you'll find Gracias Madre's meat-free creations (coconut bacon, flash-fried cauliflower) beyond satisfying. Plus, no outdoor space in WeHo feels so quintessentially Californian.

2. RivaBella 9201 W Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069 (Hollywood)

From the dudes who brought you Katana and Boa comes a totally-enormous Italian trattoria, which, like Ari Gold, has taken over the Hollywood Hamburger Hamlet.

4. SunCafe 3711 Cahuenga Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604

This vegan resto is worth the trip to the Valley just to try the Abbey Float, which features St. Bernardus Belgian ale, sweet sweet cherry Cola, and a big scoop of vanilla cashew ice cream.
