Californian | Santa Monica, Westside

I dined at this restaurant on two successive evenings in order to entertain a business associate and then a friend. The food was excellent and imaginatively created and the portion sizes plentiful. The service was very friendly. It would be good, however, to have more warm options for vegetarians because my partner, who is vegetarian, found the choice of dishes very limited. The restaurant has quite an old-world feel and is in an excellent location, but it would have been good to have a bit more light in the evening; as it was, it proved extremely difficult to read the menu!

Italian | Pasadena, Pasadena / San Gabriel

Best Italian restaurant for miles around. Very interesting menu bolstered by daily specials and in the right season items like truffles. They have enclosed dining areas for larger groups and a small bar. Only downside is that it gets crowded and there are 3 or 4 tables at the back of the restaurant that are near the kitchen and not very comfortable or pleasant places to sit. The wine list is extensive. 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.
