Hidden Gems in West Hollywood

While West Hollywood flourishes as a tight-knit community and neighborhood, its official status goes beyond that as a city in its own right. Famous for passing legislation such as same-gender domestic partner benefits for city employees, and bans on fur sales and declawing of cats, West Hollywood represents not only much of LA’s entertainment history but also a beacon of social justice.

The legendary Sunset Strip has been undergoing a revival of sorts as the home of go-to music venues, and many of LA’s top destination restaurants lie within West Hollywood’s borders, but there are other spots that fly under the radar. Whether you're a longtime resident, or are visiting this bustling city beneath the hills for the first time, there's always something new to discover in WeHo. Take advantage of its rich, creative history and vibrant culture by going off the beaten path.

Measuring just under two square miles, West Hollywood (aka WeHo to locals) is one of L.A.’s most popular and vibrant districts. Several notable dining spots, including Lucques, Sweet Lady Jane and Madeo, fall just outside its boundaries. But WeHo proper is jam-packed with excellent restaurants: classics like Dan Tana’s, new kids like Connie & Ted’s, edgy hole-in-the-walls such as Night + Market and glossy lookers such as Fig & Olive. The West Hollywood dining scene has it all, and here are some of our favorite restaurants.
