Los Feliz Restaurants
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.
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 rosewater; and squid with saffron, pine nut and cilantro, to name a few goop favorites.
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.
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
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. Locations in Hollywood and Los Feliz.
