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.

Of all the cities and suburbs throughout Los Angeles, West Hollywood can rightfully be named the most prominent area for brunch—and most definitely, the perfect place for a boozy brunch. The city limit extends as far east as La Brea and as far west as Doheny, with Beverly and Sunset Boulevards to the north and south.

For this brunch list, we’re sticking to a more condensed area affectionately called WeHo, with a list of ten restaurants that provide just a taste of what’s available—ranging from rooftops to southern comfort to a drag queen brunch. Cheers!

Venice Beach is patterned after Venice, Italy, and both places have a system of canals. That said, you wouldn’t find nearly as many skaters, street art, or palm trees in the Italian city. Venice Beach has developed four different zones that all have their draws, including trendy Abbot Kinney, funky Oceanfront Walk, a section south of the canals by Marina del Rey, and an increasingly vital stretch of long-gritty Lincoln Boulevard. Discover five of Venice’s best dishes that cover different cuisines and span the key neighborhoods.
