Sometimes you just gotta treat yourself and hit up those decadent spots that make you feel like you need to be rolled out. These are some of my favorites.
A Los Angeles classic. Please go here! If you're in the search for classic, Northern Italian food, look no further. This is it. Every single thing on their menu is worth ordering, my absolute favorite, though, is their lemon pasta--it's the most incredible thing ever.
Some of the best pasta in town. Get the uni pasta, order a lot of appetizers and order something from the mozzarella bar.
Animal Restaurant is a meat-lovers dream. They were one of the first in the nose-to-tail movement and it shows. All of the food is deliciously decadent, heavy and super interesting.
Their bacon at brunch is reason enough to come here.
The best BBQ LA has to offer. Get the rib tips or brisket. Their sauces are smoky, peppery, spicy and full of flavor. Whatever you do don't skip the sides. Their cole slaw is peppery and perfect, while their beans are smokey and sweet. And the women who work the window couldn't be sweeter.
I'm in love with this place. This restaurant is a good time. Friendly and helpful wait staff and their pastas are crazy good. The smoked bucatini?! Good gracious, yes!
One of my all-time favorites in Los Angeles. Modern, clean and beautiful space, with a menu that changes daily. Pro-tip: Go with a big group and order the whole menu. Definitely the way to go.
Perfectly executed and relatively simple, Italian food. Oh and their pizza? Is now my favorite in all of Los Angeles.
