Once you’ve had your first meal at Norah, you won’t have any trouble seeing why one reviewer called “West Hollywood’s sexiest new restaurant.” Aside from the gorgeous, well-lit setting and the prime location, Norah offers delicious, innovative cuisine that defies expectations. Enjoy a three-course dinner with their roots with burrata and their American wagyu zabuton, or sit down at the bar for an unforgettable cocktail.

Connie & Ted’s

The flavors of New England, right here in West Hollywood? We’d forgive you if you didn’t know exactly what to expect from Connie & Ted’s, but we promise that you won’t be disappointed with the experience. Their fresh raw oysters and clams have garnered tons of praise from experience West Hollywood restauranteurs, but their menu holds much more in store for the diner who’s willing to dabble.

E.P. & L.P.

E.P. & L.P. is actually two (or three) venues rolled into one! The downstairs portion is an Asian kitchen (E.P.), styled with red light and minimalist furnishings, while the upstairs features a rooftop bar (L.P.) with a private seating area known as Frankie’s. The food at E.P. is based in the traditions of Thai cuisine, but their talented staff expertly combines elements of Chinese, Vietnamese, and Fijian cooking. Confused? Don’t let the different names distract you: you’ll enjoy great flavors, and unparalleled attention to detail, no matter which portion you end up in.


If you’ve heard of one restaurant on this list, there’s a good chance that it’s Taste on Melrose. They’re open for lunch, dinner, and brunch on weekends, and with everything from caramelized cumin spiced pork chop to seafood linguine on the menu, there’s truly something for everyone here. Their daily happy hour specials and simple-but-satisfying cocktails are just icing on the cake.
