    Nishimura is home to some of the best sushi chefs in LA and with that comes a hefty price tag for lunch or dinner. But, like most things, you do indeed get what you pay for and in this case a lighter wallet means extraordinarily good sushi. Generally letting the chef prepare you an omakase meal is the way to go as it consists primarily of sashimi as opposed to other sushi restaurants that are heav ... read more >

    Gjelina is an impressive space with its textured wooden tables, installation art worthy light fixtures, dark moody interior and gorgeous outdoor patio.

    Easily one of the top if not the best Lebanese restaurants in Los Angeles. While it isn't much in the way of ambiance, Marouch makes up for it with amazing food that has buzzing about the quality and flavor. There is really no reason not to visit Marouch as it is home to perhaps the best hummus in the city and provides diners with a relaxed dining experience that focuses on you enjoying your meal ... read more >
