Mac & Cheese With Bell Pepper Bowls, Because Dishes Are the Worst
This Brentwood spot is a modern bistro/bakery specializing in French cuisine that incorporates California flavors.
The Must is... a must (sorry, we had to). Sign up for their pork pie, delicious French fries, and delicious tater tots. You won't regret it.
From the Food & Wine Best New Chef behind Mo-Chica and Picca, Paiche is both a massive Amazonian fish (seriously, it's giant) and a wood-laden, open kitchen'd Marina del Rey restaurant with a massive menu of... small plates. Fourteen different styles of ceviches, to be exact, alongside an extensive list of Latin wines and spirits and Japanese sake and beer. Sake(t) to me!
This classily retro, exposed-brick-heavy drinkery's got a decidedly Edison-esque vibe, w/ oversized leather chairs, and b&w photos of a frumpy lady looking semi-happy. Drinks are from a guy who won a mixology TV show.
It’s hard to believe this sophisticated space was once a Hamburger Hamlet, but Tavern’s managing partners have transformed the place into a triumvirate of exemplary dining options: full-service, sit-down dining in a naturally lit atrium, an easy-to-go marketplace/restaurant, and a bar serving craft cocktails and artisanal wine. This breakfast/lunch/dinner bistro from the team behind A.O.C., Lucques, and the Hungry Cat serve an array of French and Mediterranean-inspired fare.
