Chef Dominique Ansel's Cookie shot

189 BY DOMINIQUE ANSEL We’ve had the Cronut knockoffs, but we’re finally getting the real thing when famed chef-owner Dominique Ansel brings them and so much more to L.A. with his two-story restaurant and bakery. Set to debut at The Grove this fall, this will mark the first full restaurant by Ansel with a bar, patios, open kitchens and more. While we’ll get a taste of the savory side of the chef’s creations, there will still be plenty of Cookie shots to go around.

EATALY Come fall, dining will be bigger than shopping at Westfield Century City. In addition to myriad new restaurants expected to open, the grand dame of Italian foods will finally make its L.A. debut. Backed by Lidia Bastianich, her son Joe and master chef Mario Batali, Eataly has been a hit in NYC since 2013 and garnered more foodie fervor with every opening since. The first for the West Coast, the opening of the massive space will feature multiple sit-down restaurants and cafes, plus departments offering the best in seafood, pasta, meats and more.

NOMAD After receiving numerous accolades for its NYC restaurants, Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad, chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara will open a restaurant in the what’s sure to be the impressive NoMad Hotel in DTLA this fall. The menu will be classic, which will possibly include the foie gras-stuffed chicken and suckling pig made famous on the East Coast, in addition to new dishes drawing inspiration from the produce of the West Coast.
