Hidden Gems In The Los Angeles Food Scene
Los Angeles

Los Angeles is one of the most amazing places in the world, and is quickly becoming a Foodie heaven, thanks to an incredible variety of international cuisines and some of the most talented chefs in the world setting down their roots here. Due to LA being so close to the Central Valley, it's access to produce and other seasonal ingredients make it an ideal place for a quality restaurant to survive. See our short list of top places to eat, and we assure you, you won't be disappointed.

South End, Venice, CA

You can get a table most nights of the week without an insane wait. Substitutions won’t be an issue. Servers are helpful. And while you won’t find the kind of life-changing vegetables you would eat elsewhere alongside your pie, that’s not what you’re here for. You’re here for pizza, and a glass of Brunello to go with it.

The Standing Room Restaurant, Hermosa Beach, CA

One of the South Bay’s truest hidden gems is The Standing Room, a mega-popular burger outlet tucked into the back of a liquor store. Walk past the chips and the coolers to order up from a selection of massive meals, then avoid standing in the aisle getting ketchup all over by sneaking over to the beach.

Bavel, Los Angeles, CA

This is the second restaurant from the people behind Bestia. Bavel is in the Arts District, though slightly removed from most of the action, on a quiet corner in an old warehouse that still looks a little like a construction site. The room feels sunny even when you’re sitting down for your 10pm reservation, is full of plants hanging from the ceiling, and has a side patio that almost doubles the size of the restaurant. It’s a place you instantly want to hang out in, and also one that will immediately blur into the background once you start eating.
