Eat your way through LA and uncover our hidden gems where the locals head for the best bites on the West Coast.

Many of the world’s best chefs call California home. Let’s see what’s on the menu.

Spago is an LA classic and just as popular with Beverly Hills residents as it is with tourists. Wolfgang Puck’s flagship restaurant always attracts a crowd, especially the celebrity clientele who come to try his ever-changing menu and famous pizza with smoked salmon and caviar.

Ideal for: Lunch, making an impression

Interior of Tallula restaurant. There's a counter with 4 black high chairs, a few shelves behind the counter with bottles of alcohol, glasses and a plant. The walls are green. On the wall, there's a neon art wall where we can read: Felix's bar in light pink.


A restaurant that feels like you’re stepping into someone’s colourful beach house. Tallula’s serves classic Mexican favourites such as fish tacos, empanadas and tostadas, as well as their popular
passion fruit margaritas.

Ideal for: Best skyline view, luxury fun, good nightlife
