Melisse Los Angeles

Mirroring the city’s vibe, the L.A. dining scene is relaxed but refined, ranging from farm-to-table eateries to seriously sophisticated culinary temples. Mapping out a good strategy is key to avoid spending more time in the car than at the table. West Hollywood, especially around Melrose Avenue and Third Street, and Venice are meccas of young, innovative chefs. For an abbreviated list of our favorite restaurants, read Top Tables Los Angeles.
