Studio City’s name was inspired by Mack Sennett’s thriving movie studio (now CBS Studio Center). The six-square-mile-plus expanse has added a number of neighboring studios over the years. Hollywood players splurge on good food, and not just at power lunches. Thankfully, Studio City has one of the highest concentrations of destination sushi bars in L.A., and has gained a wide variety of seasonal and international restaurants in recent years.

The Top 5 Dishes in North Hollywood

North Hollywood previously fell under the purview of Mission San Fernando Rey de España and became private farms after San Fernando Farm Homestead Association and Isaac Lankershim purchased the land. The area was rebranded as North Hollywood in 1927 in a marketing push to capitalize on rising Hollywood glamour. Since then, the city has become more residential. After the launch of the Red Line in 2000 and the opening of the connecting Orange Line in 2005, the city centered more on the NoHo Arts District, which has seen a restaurant boom. North Hollywood also houses L.A.’s unofficial second Thai Town near Wat Thai Temple, a community center for Thai-Americans. Discover five of North Hollywood’s best dishes across nearly six square miles.

Bob's Big Boy: The Story of an L.A. Icon

Architect Wayne McAllister was inspired by the Space Age, World's Fair pavilions and roadside dining culture when he designed the building. Large, curving windows contrast with sharp angles, incorporating elements of Streamline Moderne and Midcentury Modernism. McAllister also mixed the practical with the eye-popping. The 70-foot-tall neon sign, which made it easy for drivers to see the coffee shop from the road, was so distinctive it helped build the Bob's Big Boy brand. McAllister designed many popular restaurants including The Smoke House in Burbank and several circular drive-ins, all of which are now gone. He was also responsible for several early Las Vegas casinos including The Sands, The Desert Inn and The Fremont.
