Californian | Santa Monica, Westside

The view and environment are lovely and perfect for a quiet lunch. Our waiter was great. The food was good. Our steak salad was overcooked and when we sent it back it came back basically raw. The abundance of Kale was disturbing. I am sort of sick of Kale in everything! It would be nice to just get a normal salad once and a while. More

The music was a bit annoying after awhile. It was a constant drum beat only and that is difficult to hear when it is constant. Our waiter was very nice but not attentive. Seemed he had to many tables. More

Sushi | Simi Valley, Ventura County

First timer- My wife and I went for our 8 year wedding anniversary and we thought it was absolutely excellent. Best sushi I’ve ever had. A bit pricey and portions are a bit small but this is to be expected considering the quality of fish, but the flavors I experienced were unlike any other. We had the $100 Omakase. Everything was delicious and unique. The place is extremely small and is by reservation only so don’t show up without reserving a place first. I will definitely be going back here again! More

It was perfect from the minute we walked it. We were going to the Ahmanson for a play at 8pm and had a 5:45 reservation. They kept us on track with our ordering and bringing the food. We even had time to order dessert, get the check and pay and leave in plenty of time. The food was creative and delicious we will be back for sure! More

Vietnamese | West Los Angeles, Westside

Welcome to Không Tên, a labor of love and an expression of heritage. We cook New Vietnamese cuisine here, and we envision dropping the Santa Monica Farmers Market, where we source a large portion of our produce and proteins, in the middle of Vietnam.

What would young, Vietnamese-born, Vietnamese-raised, and Vietnamese-trained chefs make with ingredients they may not have seen before? This is New Vietnamese cuisine — a re-imagination of Vietnamese flavors for current day California.

Our dishes are completely invented, fresh, and seasonal. While these Vietnamese dishes are 0% traditional, they are 100% authentic.More

Discover Los Angeles

Think Los Angeles is a one-industry town? Think again. From the micro-Seoul of Koreatown to unexpected fusion cuisines (take Chinese-Mexican, for one) and strip malls that house destination restaurants, the city’s restaurant scene is notably experimental and diverse. Ask locals where to find the best taco truck (or lonchero) in the city, and you’ve struck a match. These mobile microenterprises are a part of the city's lifeblood. With L.A.’s own Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic, Jonathan Gold, describing the city as “less of a melting pot—more of a glittering mosaic,” we’re seeing L.A.’s vast palate show up on the plate.
