Restaurants in Los Angeles

L.A. is the birthplace of California cuisine and Wolfgang Puck's Spago in Beverly Hills is still going strong. Nobody cooks a rib eye like Mastro's Steakhouse, and celebrities poke at their salads at The Ivy. If you like fun with your food, sip sake with the sushi chefs at Restaurant Hama in Venice or create the perfect dog at Pink's Hot Dogs in Hollywood. Add a tip of 15% to 20%. Last orders are around 10pm.

Spago

Wolfgang Puck's place

The Beverly Hills branch of Spago, celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck's empire, is still the best place to experience his innovative California cuisine such as honey-lacquered duck topped with foie gras. A jacket-and-tie is the proper attire when dining among the Hollywood celebrities and power brokers, and the romantically lit outdoor patio offers the best seating.

Philippe The Original

A cafeteria with character

Good old-fashioned value is what this legendary Downtown cafeteria is all about. A cup of coffee still costs the same as when the diner opened in 1924: nine cents! Philippe The Original claims to have invented the French-dipped sandwich, and it remains the most popular menu item. Try the cinnamon-dipped French toast for breakfast.
