Los Feliz Restaurants
1820 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz
If team goop were ever stuck on a deserted island, the dish staffers would dream of is an In-N-Out burger. The soft bun, the warm melty cheese, the sweet Thousand Island–style special sauce…we could go on. But there's no reason to be so dramatic, because now we can have a meatless version of our favorite fast burger with incredible sauce and eat it, too, at Honeybee Burgers. The plant-based menu at this petite sidewalk diner rivals that of the famous chain—and is far better for us (and the planet). You can have a meatless burger on a soft bun schmeared with a vegan house sauce that will win the heart of any meat lover. You can munch on crinkle sweet potato fries and crispy tater tots dipped in house-made plant-based buttermilk ranch and tangy ketchup. And if you’re really going for it (and we recommend you do), you can top it off with the Daisy—a coconut-milk-and-orange-blossom "milkshake" that tastes like a Creamsicle.
2040 Hillhurst Ave., Los Feliz
COVID-19 Update: Open for pickup and delivery. If there’s anything you must get when you come to Los Feliz, it’s the focaccia at All Time. Let’s put it this way: It’s loaded with burrata, roasted cherry tomatoes, and olive oil. It’s too good to miss, as is nearly everything you could order off the handwritten dinner menu (it changes frequently). But they know a great thing when they have it at All Time: You’ll always find the focaccia on the menu. COVID-19 Disclaimer: We are working hard to keep our listings as up to date as possible (deliveries, outdoor dining, etc.), but given the evolving nature of local COVID-19 restrictions, we recommend double-checking the information in this guide with any business you plan on visiting. Also, please note that we have not vetted any businesses listed within our guides for their compliance with applicable safety regulations.
1866 N Vermont Ave, Los Feliz
This is an artisan coffee joint, serving pour-over coffee from single origin beans in a city slim on decent coffee bars.
4648 Hollywood Blvd., Los Feliz
On the border of Los Feliz and Hollywood, this all-day, full-service restaurant comes from chefs Sarah Hymanson and Sara Kramer, who ran the kitchen at Glasserie in NYC before stealing Angelenos’ hearts with their vegetable-centric falafel joint, Madcapra, in Grand Central Market. Teaming up with Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo (of Animal, Jon & Vinny’s, and Son of a Gun fame), they’ve successfully brought their Middle Eastern/Californian cuisine to the East Side. Be sure to order the flaky bread with labneh, preserved lemon, and honey; za’atar squash tart; Persian cucumber salad with labneh and rose water; and squid with saffron, pine nuts, and cilantro, to name a few goop favorites.
2442 Hyperion Ave., Los Feliz
Here, you’ll find Spanish tapas, cheese plates, and a handful of pastas, all served in a lowkey homey setting—homey indeed, as the restaurant lives in a 1940’s house in the Silver Lake hills. In fact, a select few can grab a seat at kitchen counter, and watch chef Don Dickman cook.
2128 Hillhurst Ave., Los Feliz
A smattering of always-packed bistro tables on the sidewalk outside beckon from this Italian classic, which is the little sister to Dominick's in West Hollywood. We like eating our lasagna at the dimly-lit bar inside.
4500 Los Feliz Blvd., Los Feliz
Occupying the former home of Willard’s Chicken Inn (and perhaps more notably, an outpost of The Brown Derby), MessHall serves gussied up versions of the items you might have had at camp, like hot wings, macaroni and cheese, and pie in a jar. Camp probably didn’t come with a huge selection of craft beer, though, or $1 Oysters on Tuesday nights.
2056 Hillhurst Ave., Los Feliz
This stand serves up authentic Mexican street food, including killer cochinita pibil (Yucatán-style roasted pork), carne asada, carnitas burritos, and more. The beans here are homemade and full of flavor, and they also have a pretty great burger. Their portion sizes are also authentic, so don't expect Chipotle-esque burritos. Cash only and open until 6PM.
4655 Hollywood Blvd., Los Feliz
The eponymous burger here warrants the elusive name, which refers to the fifth taste in Japanese. You'll find a sleek interior and fantastic burgers, plus inventive sides and sauces. Not to mention, they grind their own meat, process their own cheese, and pickle their own veggies. Because why not? With multiple locations throughout LA area, you can't, and shouldn't, miss this. Other locations: Arts District, Downtown, Burbank, Hollywood, Pasadena, Santa Monica, Studio City, West Hollywood, and Thousand Oaks
