The 50 finest things hitting L.A.'s food scene
Westfield Century City

Westfield Century City
Recently this behemoth underwent a major renovation, bringing the storied shopping mall into the future with outdoor communal spaces and plenty of instagrammable nooks. Expect a variety of new restaurants, including OC Mexican staple Javier’s, Din Tai Fung, the iconic restaurants and markets at Eataly, Top Chef alum Richard Blais’ Crack Shack, Wexler's Deli and more. Trust us: This is not the food court you grew up with. 310.277.3898

Curated by Runyon Group, which is also behind the Platform development in Culver City, ROW DTLA offers a well-curated shopping experience including bespoke retailers, ultrahip restaurants, art galleries and fitness studios on the edge of the Art’s District in downtown Los Angeles. For food, think bento boxes at Hayato, a fourth-generation oyster bar by Rappahannock, a weekly pop-up market from Smorgasbord and the forthcoming Tartine Manufactory. DTLA

Grand Central Market
After celebrating its 100th anniversary last year, GCM was sold to Adam Daneshgar of Langdon Street Capital, who’ll be ensuring that the storied market stays true to its roots while maintaining its position as one of the country’s coolest modern food halls. Newer additions to the fresh-produce and legacy stands include a Filipino grain bowl concept from the folks at République called Sari Sari Store, and a fried-chicken spot called Spring Chicken set to open this summer.
