What to do in LA

Jill & Kyle's Los Angeles Recommendations

Here's our own curated list of favorite restuarants, bars, and sites that are easily accessible from West Hollywood. We've included direct links to their websites to learn more.


RESTAURANTS (in order by meal time - but you can go to the bar in the morning, we won't judge):

  • The Griddle - go early or you will have to wait in line for a good amount of time. The pancakes are as big as your head!
  • Breakfast by Salt's Cure - pancakes so good they don't need syrup! Seriously, they don't even have syrup at this place.
  • Canter's Deli - old Hollywood diner. If you get there before 10A they have an earlybird menu
  • Cofax Coffee - best breakfast burrito
  • Coffee Commissary - our go to for high quality pour over and delicious pastries
  • Farmers Market @ The Grove - best for when you are indecisive, they have every type of cuisine for breakfast, lunch, or dinner
  • Sweet Chick - best fried chicken on a waffle
Lunch or Dinner
  • Son of a Gun - best fried chicken on a sandwich, although it's known for seafood. Good for lunch or dinner
  • In N Out - need we say more?
  • Barney's Beanery - our local sports bar/restaurant
  • The Fat Dog - lunch/dinner/drinks. Make sure it's the WeHo Location
  • Sugarfish - great sushi experience. Go with the Trust Me! Multiple locations open for lunch or dinner
  • A.O.C. - our favorite happy hour and dinner spot. Must order: bacon wrapped dates and spanish fried chicken (both on their happy hour menu) *Reservations needed outside of happy hour
  • Ronan - maybe tied with our favorite dinner spot as of Jill's birthday this year *Reservations needed
  • Pizzeria Mozza - renowned pizza, but Nancy's Salad is also the best. *Reservations needed
  • Jon & Vinny's - pizza and amazing garlic bread. *Reservations needed
  • Connie & Ted's - best seafood
  • El Compadre - Old Hollywood Mexican restaurant. Our go to for bottomless chips & salsa and their infamous flaming margarita!

  • Employees Only - for a great cocktail ($$$) *Reservations recommended
  • The Hudson - one of our favorite happy hours for food & drink *Reservations not necessary but recommended
  • Conservatory - you're on vacation, enjoy an aperol spritz here. We happened to take our engagement photos here.
  • The Pikey - local pub that also has good food selections
  • Melrose Umbrella Co. - favorite cocktail: the White Old Fashioned
  • Wirsthaus - get your Oktoberfest on. Beth & Jill once participated in a stein holding contest here and won DAS BOOT
  • Surly Goat - Jill & Kyle's local watering hole known for their draft beer selection. Zero frills, literally zero -- you've been warned.
