New Year, New Us: Five LA Restaurants We Can’t Wait to Try


In our new series, we explore the people, places, events, and things that we’re excited to try in the New Year. Hey, you’ve got to look forward to something, right? 

As the winter wears on, we can’t help but get excited about the prospect of more and more East Coast chains moving west to our glorious metropolis. With the announcement of a La Colombe Brewery and a Momofuku location, we’re already pretty stoked. But let’s get real: What’s holding up that Glendale Eggslut?!


Modern Times Brewery

The Olive Street bar specializes in craft beers of the finest variety–if the cute name didn’t get us, the beer would. The bar is slated to open in DTLA hopefully this winter.


Sweet Chick

In the mood for some chicken and waffles? Head over Sweet Chick on Fairfax when it opens this winter–the first LA location promises to bring all the flavor of the New York fried chicken joint, plus a fabulous West Coast feel.


Petit Trois

This Ludo Lefebvre-owned bistro is making a move toward the valley, and we couldn’t be more ready for it.


The Slanted Door

The much-hyped San Francisco eatery is about to be part of LA’s City Market South project, opening sometime this spring.

Beauty & Essex


This art deco-inspired restaurant is pure glamour– and it’s coming to Hollywood any minute now!
