Hollywood Restaurants

Establishment neighborhood
Cleo (Closed)
The Redbury, 1717 Vine St., Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. This place is great if you love strong, Mediterranean flavors. The complex small plates are excellent, and served in the beautiful eclectic hotel dining room. Their signature cocktails are just as delicious and interesting, making this a great place for a night out.

Jitlada
5233 1/2 W. Sunset Blvd., Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. You wouldn't expect it from the outside, but this place serves up excellent and innovative Southern Thai cuisine, that pushes the boundaries on flavor and spice. The mussels are a standout and people rave about the 'crying tiger.' It's tiny, which makes for long but worthwhile waits.

Mud Hen Tavern (Closed)
724 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood
Susan Feniger opened Mud Hen Tavern in the space previously occupied by her popular restaurant, Street. The menu reads over-the-top and all-over-the-place, but it's actually exciting, innovative, and comes together as a great meal. The chicken & waffle croquettes with bacon and spicy maple syrup is a great example: The spice kicks up the maple syrup, which, glazed on crispy chicken meatballs, makes for an insanely delicious small plate. Everything else we tried was equally good, from the tuna ceviche with toasted corn to the vegetarian tostada (the walnut 'chorizo' on this is delicious, deceiving, and brilliant). It's mobbed here on weekend nights, with loud, upbeat music (Eye of the Tiger was blasting during dessert), and the vibe is definitely more pre-game than date.
Musso & Frank Grill
6667 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. Well-worn red leather banquettes, stiff martinis, bowtied waiters, and what was the first pay-phone in Hollywood, are just the beginning of this fabled restaurant's story. Thanks to its proximity to the Screen Writer's Guild, literary stars like F. Scott Fitzgerald, Faulkner, and Aldous Huxley, wrote while they snacked on liquor. The menu has evolved since they opened in 1919, though it's really more about drinking up the scene.

Pace
2100 Laurel Canyon Blvd., Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. Though its just a few miles from L.A.'s busiest stretch, Pace feels like it's in the middle of the nowhere. It's actually in the residential hillside enclave, Laurel Canyon, right below a sweet little neighborhood grocery store. It's one of those rare restaurants that works equally well for big, lively dinners with friends or more romantic dates. The food—Italian—is strong, but it's really more about the cozy, tucked-away vibe than culinary fireworks.

Pizzeria Mozza
641 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. The incredible crust that makes the pizza here so delectable is the doing of LaBrea Bakery founder and former owner Nancy Silverton. And while we don't know who exactly to thank for the chopped salad, it deserves a notable mention. Other highlights are the fried squash blossom with ricotta and butterscotch budino, but anything you order will not disappoint. It all packs up beautifully to-go, too, making it a great option for a weeknight dinner when you don't feel like cooking.

The Griddle
7916 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. The long wait to get into this get close and comfy place for breakfast is so worth the amazing waffles and French press coffee. They'll definitely set you right for the day. There's also good people watching.

M Café de Chaya
7119 Melrose Ave., Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. This is a great place for lunch. We love the Teriyaki Brown Rice Bowl with salmon and The California Club sandwich with tempeh 'bacon' and soy-mayo. They also have a great kids menu with options like buckwheat pancakes and gluten-free quesadillas. The atmosphere is relaxed and airy. There's a location in Beverly Hills and a new outpost in Brentwood.
