Los Angeles - Food and Drink
From upscale restaurants to the raw food movement, LA has some of the most exciting dining opportunities in the world.
You’ll find the famous farmers market at Third and Fairfax, where you can pick up gorgeous fresh produce or dine in the open air patio on tasty dishes from one of the tempting stalls.
Downtown a whole host of bars offer the LA experience at its brightest, with every kind of bar from traditional pine-panelled watering holes to rubbing shoulders with the trend setters and drinking roof top cocktails.
Experience a traditional American Diner in West Hollywood, which is also a great place to find wonderful coffee shops in a city where coffee is a crucial element of the LA lifestyle.
For a taste of something a bit different, visit the district of Silverlake for diverse and innovative restaurants, a whole range of cuisine from around the world and a hip and inviting atmosphere.
Venice Beach's waterfront lounges, restaurants and grill-bars attract the young and stylish - and the permanently-dieting, drawn to the lo-fat, high-taste seafood, barbecues and salads. Or, for that matter, the juicy burgers and Italian-American specials!
Or get right on trend and dine from one of LA’s newest innovations; the gourmet food truck, selling everything from gourmet burgers to Korean-inspired tacos and burritos. There's trucks plying the main routes in town, and parked up in most tourist hotspots. And, trust us, greasy roadside caffs these are definitely not!
Los Angeles is also great for vegetarians and vegans, with creative fresh food without meat available everywhere.
