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.

Recommends

Jon Snook and Vinnie Dotolo created a cult with this humble meatery, the first truly hardcore snout-to-tail such operation in town. The cool factor and rocking attitude helped, but the food is also very original and very good, which is what mattered most.

Animal is a carnivore's dream restaurant. Meat, meat, and more meat. Ribs, BBQ Pork Belly, Pig Ears, no animal part goes to waste here.

Recommends

It's meaty. It's inventive. It's the only place to get beef heart at 11pm. Not to mention pigtails and veal brains. It goes without saying, but don't pass up the oxtail poutine.

Not your typical high-end restaurant in LA, you won't find "vegan" or "gluten-free" on this protein-heavy menu. The Brussels sprouts and yellowtail collar are must-haves!

A meat eater's fantasies come to life at this tiny Fairfax restaurant known for small plates and strong flavor combinations of beef hearts, marinated pork ribs, bacon ice cream and more.

If you're a carnivore then this is the place for you. Small plates make sharing the best way to go, and be sure to save room for dessert.

A meat lover's paradise. Inspired menu full of offally delicious food. But beyond the meat the veggie options are amazing, specifically the fried hominy.

The BEST! – My husband and I have been to ANIMAL every week for the past few months? bringing new friends and family each visit. I love everything at ANIMAL but some of my favorites are the Foie Gras on Biscuits and Gravy, Raw Amberjack with Nectarine & Serrano Chili, Grouper with Crab Legs & Tabasco Butter. Chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo are always so gracious! They really are two super cool dudes! You may remember them from Food Network's "Two Dudes Catering". Don?t forget to get the Bacon Chocolate Crunch Bar for dessert! LOTS of photos on MyLastBite.

CItysearch Editorial Review – Though its name conjures images of hunting lodges and big-cat prints, this intimate (yet noisy) eatery eschews heavy woods and fur for a much more understated set. Bright bare bulbs, wall-length benches, scorched-wood tables and cement floors create a sparse but upscale-gallery ambiance smack dab in the center of the Fairfax District. The small, frequently changing menu is similarly more subtle than the moniker suggests: Created by chef-owners Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo (aka the Food Dudes), it features seasonal, internationally influenced ingredients. Highlights have included soft-shell crab with pancetta vinaigrette and avocado; country pork ribs; and fried quail with white grits and chard. There's also plenty of bacon on the menu, from a bacon potato-salad side to the restaurant's signature bacon-chocolate crunch dessert bars.
