5 Places to See and Be Seen in L.A.

BY The Editors | June 23, 2017 | Feature Features

The 50 finest things happening in L.A.'s food scene right now
The rooftop at Catch LA

BEAUTY & ESSEX Since its spring opening, the third iteration of Beauty & Essex has seen the likes of Beyoncé and Jay Z walk through its dazzling doors. The massive eatery—L.A. is the first location to have outdoor seating—plays home to chef Chris Santos’ globally inspired fare, including tuna poke wonton tacos. Inside, a 20-foot oval skylight in the dining room and a 30-person private space adds to its status as one of the most opulent bookings in town. 323.676.8880

CATCH LA From the moment you enter Catch’s garden-esque roofdeck patio, you know you have arrived. Although the seafood-heavy menu is delicious, it's the festive atmosphere and celeb-filled crowd that will have you coming back. You're almost guaranteed to spot a star: David Beckham and Jennifer Lopez have both taken in the epic views. West Hollywood, 323.347.6060

CECCONI'S Whether booking your next soiree in the Butterfly Room or relaxing on the patio, Cecconi’s attracts WeHo darlings and moguls alike with classic Northern Italian fare and swanky surrounds. From 4 to 7pm, Tuesday through Saturday, the bar is the place to be, with top nods going to the black truffle burger and Mel Rose cocktail. West Hollywood, 310.432.2000

CHATEAU MARMONT Between the multitude of air kisses, Champagne toasts and bevy of beautiful people mingling, the iconic Chateau Marmont’s popularity is showing no signs of waning. Soak in the idyllic candlelit atmosphere at night on the patio (truffle fries are a must), or sip a Marmont Mule in the cozy old Hollywood-style lobby bar. 323.848.5908

TOWER BAR The Sunset Strip is doused with dozens of new hot spots, but Tower Bar has been the place to rub elbows with Hollywood elite for years. Food like the chicken paillard is not to be missed, but it’s maître d’hotel Dimitri Dimitrov that truly sets the tone. In addition to entertaining guests, he determines who sits where. You'll know you’ve made it when you land at a banquette by the window. West Hollywood, 323.848.6677
