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!

Hand torn pasta was really good if you add some extra truffle on it. Enjoyed the piri piri rice and persimmon salads. Valet is available, as is a parking lot right next door for $8. The space is lacking some warmth and energy. More

Korean | Downtown, Downtown / South and East LA

Ombu Grill in Koreatown was a nice experience. Three of us dined there on a Sunday night. Probably only one other table of 2 when we arrived. Not sure anyone else ever came in after that. Our waiter was charming and helpful, and while others were friendly, communication was a little more difficult with them. We picked an item which had 5 different cuts of beef, all very good, cooked over a grill in the table with about 12 to 15 typical Korean side dishes. They also have Argentinian specialties but they all need 1 hour preparation time so we weren’t able to sample as much as we would have liked to. Beer and wine only. Valet parking available in the strip center. Well appointed restaurant. 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.
