Discover Los Angeles

The Sunset Strip, a stretch of Sunset Boulevard between Crescent Heights Boulevard and Doheny Drive, is one of LA’s most iconic neighborhoods.

The term gastropub, a portmanteau of "gastronomy" and "pub," was coined in 1991 when David Eyre and Mike Belben took over The Eagle pub in London.

Sang Yoon could easily be the poster child for gastropubs in the U.S. The chef and restaurateur took over Father's Office in Santa Monica over a decade ago, and installed a "definitive bar menu" with his now famous burger. Los Angeles gastropubs are opening their doors at a record clip, and an exciting new crop has emerged in the last year.
