3 L.A. Dishes We Still Love

BY The Editors | June 23, 2017 | Feature Features

The 50 finest things happening in L.A.'s food scene right now

For the last 35 years, Spago has been a Los Angeles staple, as has chef Wolfgang Puck’s smoked salmon pizza that was featured on his opening menu and remains on offer to this very day. Puck created the pie in the mid 1970s, and it was an instant hit with food critics. The crisp dough is doused with olive oil, then smeared with dill creme fraiche and topped with in-house cured smoked salmon and decadent caviar—a complete indulgence that appears at Puck’s Oscar parties year after year.

Made famous by polo player Neil McCarthy, the iconic McCarthy salad still draws L.A. elite to The Polo Lounge for lunch on its gorgeous patio. Romaine lettuce, organic eggs, tomatoes, beets, cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, chicken and avocado are all finely chopped and mixed with a light balsamic vinaigrette. If you’re looking for a little something extra, pair the dish with the Southwestern-style tortilla soup and a glass of Whispering Angel. Beverly Hills, 310.276.2251

When it comes to sushi in L.A., one place comes to mind: Sugarfish. The restaurant is known for its craveable Trust Me, and we can’t get enough of it. The nine-item tasting menu begins with edamame; followed by tuna sashimi; albacore, salmon, yellowtail, halibut and snapper sushi; and ends with a toro and crab handroll—both of which are suggested to eat immediately while the seaweed is still crisp. If you’re after a more unique experience, try the omakase Nozawa Bar that’s hidden inside Sugarfish’s Beverly Hills location. Locations vary
