West Hollywood Restaurants

Establishment neighborhood
Au Fudge (Closed)
9010 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood
Au Fudge is experimenting with a novel idea for dinner with kids. Here, they're totally welcome, either at the table (where there's not a kids menu, but an entire menu that everyone can happily eat off of) or in a playspace, where au pairs will entertain them with endless games and a super-cool treehouse while the adults finish dinner. The front of the restaurant features an adorable shop, where parents can stock up on last-minute birthday gifts, rainbow-colored sweets, snacks, and coffee.
Jones
7205 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. This West Hollywood standby has mellowed out substantially from its days of rowdy all-nighters, though the bathrooms—which are plastered with hilarious snapshots of partying patrons—and the late hours are a nice nod to Jones’ party-central past. On the same note, both the main bar and the smaller one in the back, are still a great spot to get a drink and people watch. As suggested by the checkered tablecloths and moody lighting, the food leans heavily on home-style Italian dishes like spaghetti and meatballs, heaping chopped salad, and thin-crust pizza—served fresh, straight from the wood-burning brick oven. If sharing, the Jidori roast chicken is a good choice.

Canter’s Deli
419 N. Fairfax Ave., West Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. Around since 1931, Canter’s can’t-miss neon signage along Fairfax is easily one of L.A.’s the most iconic visuals, outshined only by the famous hot pastrami sandwiches and house-brined dill pickles inside. The menu is rife with all the Jewish comfort food staples–matzo ball soup, blintzes, smoked fish, and so much more—one might expect from a deli, prepared in the same reliably delicious way for decades and served 24/7. Then there’s the adjoining Kibitz Room—an old-school cocktail bar with a rich musical past (everyone from The Doors to Guns N’ Roses to Fiona Apple hung out here), where you can still hear live acts nightly.

Shake Shack
8520 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for pre-order and pickup. The most up-to-date info on each location is available via the Shake Shack app. While most Californians are still die hard In-N-Out loyalists, New York transplants, and anyone who can appreciate a good burger and excellent fries, are thrilled about Shake Shack's first-ever location on the West Coast.

Jon & Vinny’s
412 N. Fairfax Ave., West Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. If there's anything to dislike about this relatively new arrival from the guys behind almost every great restaurant in town (Animal, Son of a Gun, Trois Mec, Trois Familia...) it's that it's not twice as big. People line up out the door for both a table, and takeout, thanks to a pretty epic menu of pizzas and pastas. If you want a more low-key experience, stop by for breakfast when it's nice and quiet.

Tower Bar
8358 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout, delivery, and room service for hotel guests. Jeff Klein’s art deco jewel (another great place to stay, though the rooms can be a bit tight) has one of our favorite restaurants: The walls are lined in walnut, the lighting is low, and the vibe is hushed and discreet—fitting, as it lives in what was once Bugsy Siegel’s apartment.

Dan Tana’s
9071 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood
COVID-19 Update: Open for takeout and delivery. The menu is long and hand-drawn here, which gives you an idea of how infrequently it changes: All the Italian classics are represented, from Chicken Marsala to Spaghetti Carbonara. Though the fare is decent, it caters to a regular, show business clientele that makes it one of Hollywood’s veritable cafeterias. Dan Tana's is an L.A. institution, through and through.
