Explore the Best Women-Led Restaurants in Los Angeles

The OpenTable Team

March 8th is International Women’s Day. In celebration, we created a list featuring some of the most exceptional women in Los Angeles’ culinary scene. As the long-standing mecca of sunny days, epic meals, and Hollywood heroines, it’s easy to see why it’s called the City of Angels. Next time you’re in town, we invite you to celebrate women (and eat something delicious) at one of these top spots.
