6 Most Exciting New Restaurants

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

1 Majordomo
It’s no coincidence that many of the restaurants on this list are by New Yorkers seeking the opportunity L.A. affords, and David Chang is no dummy. His first restaurant on the West Coast opened in Chinatown and is still a tough ticket. Quickly becoming a signature splash-out order is the behemoth 45-day dry-aged ribeye ($135), a collab between Chang and barbecue legend Adam Perry Lang, carved tableside and served with bearnaise and spring onions. Another must-order is bing, Chang's riff on Chinese flatbreads, decadently stuffed with butter and caviar or spiced lamb with labneh. It’s a fun take on fusion that, while not born and bred in L.A., couldn’t feel more apropos. Chinatown

2 Rossoblu
The slow rollout of City Market South in DTLA’s Fashion District commenced with the third-wave coffee shop Cognoscenti, and an ode to the cooking of Emilia-Romagna from Steve Samson (who launched Pizzeria Ortica and Sotto). The oversize former produce warehouse space designed by Masa Studio, is a real stunner, with raw industrial surfaces accented by gilded details and marble countertops, and a string-lit patio—perfect for lingering over one of Brynn Smith’s amaro-based cocktails on a warm summer night. Samson’s chubby handmade tortelloni alone, stuffed with the traditional mixture of ricotta and chard, is worth the trip to the emerging dining destination. DTLA, 213.749.1099
