The 50 finest things hitting L.A.'s food scene
Kris Yenbamroong

1 Kris Yenbamroong, Night + Market
This L.A. native's fiery fare has exposed a style of Thai cooking that stays true to its roots while being bolder, and more modern and approachable. With the success of the West Hollywood location, it makes sense that he’s opened two more outposts and created a cookbook for those wanting to whip up that addictive crispy rice at home. Silver Lake, Venice and West Hollywood

2 Liz Johnson, Freedman’s
The past decade has seen a lamented closure of a handful of Jewish delis, once communal hubs in the city. Which is why it’s so important that young chefs like Johnson are breathing life into the tradition. The chef, who’s cooked in top kitchens like Noma, uses Jewish cooking as inspiration for her menu. Expect matzo ball soup and smoked pastrami alongside rye avocado toast with chicken skin, waffled potato latkes, and a “baller bagel” topped with whitefish and caviar. Silver Lake, 213.568.3754
