  • 5936 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028

Linden is a romantic new restaurant that has made itself right at home in Hollywood. Located on Sunset Boulevard, Linden pays homage to the melting pot food scene that is New York City, fusing Caribbean techniques and flavors with traditional Jewish cuisine. The space features hanging greenery on the ceiling along with red curtains that contrast with the white brick walls, setting the scene to enjoy an espresso martini or a glass of red wine. The hearty Wagyu oxtail pie is a signature dish you won’t want to miss, while the sweet corn and pea agnolotti is the ideal pasta plate.

  • 111 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401

Burgette will be bringing Parisian-inspired burgers to Santa Monica the first week of April. This highly anticipated bistro is the sister restaurant to wildly popular Bar Monette, and will be located right next door. The signature “La Burgette” will feature a beef patty, Dijon burger sauce, caramelized onion, six month-aged Mimolette cheese and a crunchy cornichon on top. Patrons can also expect plenty of tasty French wines along with small plates and charcuterie.

  • 1301 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90401

Layla has officially landed in Santa Monica, putting a modern twist on Middle Eastern favorites that are served family style. Located within The Beacon by Sonder on Ocean Avenue, Layla is a great spot to sit down for a group dinner with friends, family or colleagues over hummus, leben dip and warm house-made bread that is baked to order. When it comes to entrées, the grilled Mediterranean sea bass and dry-aged bone-in ribeye both steal the show, but the cilantro potato mousseline is a sensational side dish.

Neighborhood Winery

  • 811 Traction Ave Unit 1A, Los Angeles, CA 90013

Still under the same ownership, Neighborhood Winery has officially replaced the former Pali Wine Co. in DTLA’s Arts District. Natural wine is the name of the game here, and this beautiful tasting room is the perfect place to kick back with a glass of orange or chilled while catching up with friends on the cozy patio. In addition to natural wines, Neighborhood Winery also serves an array of bites ranging from charcuterie boards to sandwiches and salads. End on a sweet note with an elevated ice cream cookie sandwich.

Prima Donna

  • 8801 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90036

Located on the bottom floor of The Shay in Culver City, Prima Donna serves wood-fired pizzas and hand-made pastas in a modern, warm and neighborhood-esque setting. Before diving into a Margherita pizza, start off on a lighter note with the fresh little gem salad that is tossed in a zesty robiola vinaigrette and topped with salty prosciutto. When it comes to pasta, the tortellini with smoked ricotta pairs perfectly with a glass of pinot noir. Other menu highlights include the dry-aged branzino and the $72 truffle and caviar-topped Prima Donna pizza.
