Netflix’s Nailed It! host Nicole Byer knows her way around LA dining. The show host recently spoke with New York Magazine about her favorite places to eat around the city, and it starts with a very simple Stumptown cold brew before heading to the gym.
Then Byer meets friends at Silver Lake’s Bowery Bungalow which she describes as a place to get, “turmeric fried rice, the baby back ribs, the bruschetta, and the fried cauliflower with tahini.” She calls the meal an 11 out of 10, though she thinks a place like Providence would be a 20 out of 10. Pity the restaurants that are only an 10 out of 10 in Byer’s rating system.
A few days later Byer orders in 25 Degrees, a burger spot in Hollywood, via Postmates and gets a bacon cheeseburger, fries, and milkshake. And she rates that meal a 10 out of 10. After a quick trip to Vegas, she returns to join friends at Night + Market, calling the fried chicken sandwich one of the best she’s ever had, rivaling the sandwich at Howlin’ Ray’s (which she says she once waited three hours for). She ends her LA tour with a lasagna dinner at Little Dom’s, which also came with some arugula salad and caprese. She rates Little Dom’s an 11 out of 10. Looks like on the whole, LA’s restaurants nailed it.
