Home to some of the finest and most experimental chefs around the world, it’s no wonder that West Hollywood is a food lover’s haven. Thriving with tasty local cafes, incredible lunch options and gourmet cuisine, neither you nor your taste buds will be disappointed with our choice of the city’s most delicious offerings.
Black Cod at Laurel Hardware
At Laurel Hardware you can expect delicious, local organic produce in this neighbourhood restaurant. With so many flavoursome choices on the dinner menu, we have gone for the Black Cod. Served with spigarello, sweet corn and fish fumet, this dish is packed with flavour and plenty of protein to prepare you for a night out amongst the glimmering city lights.
Josephine’s Clam Cakes at Connie & Ted’s
Inspired by the classic clam shacks and fish joints you’d usually find in New England, this vibrant restaurant serves up some of the best seafood in town. With lobster by the pound and Wild White Mexican Shrimp for mains, we’d start off this feast with Josephine’s Clam Cakes. You can choose from six or even a dozen of these handmade delights which make it a perfect little sharer to really wake up those taste buds for the meal ahead.
Flautas De Camote at Gracias Madre
Settle down in this chic Mexican eatery and indulge in Chandra Gilbert’s carefully selected plant based menu that’s full of bold flavours. Open all day, this is a great place to pop for a casual late morning brunch or even before heading out for cocktails. For an authentic Mexican feast we’d go for the Flautas De Camote; rolled tacos filled with sweet potatoes, caramelised onions and of course, guacamole. You don’t need to be vegan to enjoy this one.
Pasta Mama at Hugo’s
Once a local butcher’s shop with a staff member called Hugo, now an exciting restaurant at the forefront of West Hollywood cuisine, Hugo’s boasts a delicious menu of healthy dishes. And it’s the Pasta Mama that gets everyone talking at this local favourite. It’s the fresh pasta, scrambled eggs and a dash of Hugo’s secret seasoning that makes this dish what it is, but if you are feeling slightly more adventurous you can even create your own plate to rival this tasty menu.
Lamb Meatballs at The Eveleigh
This charming rustic restaurant strives to source as many ingredients from local farmers as possible. From the pretty front garden to the casual interior, The Eveleigh is a lovely place for a casual bite to eat and time and time again it provides flavoursome dishes that really speak for themselves. Our favourite? The Lamb Meatballs. It may seem a simple dish, but the chefs here can certainly cook it to perfection with the addition of their very own crunchy breadcrumb salsa invention.
