Discover Westside

Westside Los Angeles is home to the glitz and glamor of Hollywood. Whether you're a longtime resident or a starry-eyed tourist, you won't have to travel far to find great food. Here, it ranges from 5-star restaurants to cheap dining truck tacos. For lunchtime fare, head to one of the area's Italian and French sidewalk cafes, which serve things like crepes and paninis. Upscale options abound, with choices like New American wine bars, sushi bars, and steakhouses with oceanfront views. International flavor is easy to find as well. The Westside area has authentic Mexican restaurants, Filipino eateries, and ramen joints. For dessert, make sure to try a real Mexican churro, a pastry from a chic patisserie, or some frozen yogurt.
