It seems impossible to avoid Super Bowl LIII, since 103.4 million people watched the year’s biggest game in 2018. Tack on the Los Angeles Rams taking on the New England Patriots, and it’s a safe assumption that most of the city will be watching. There’s plenty of Southern California spots to watch LA’s first trip to the championship in many years, but for those wishing to go out and bypass the crowds and noise, there are options in this fair city.

Eater compiled a list of nine Los Angeles restaurants and one brewery dedicated to quiet meals, craft beer, and cocktails with no screaming fans, and no televisions.

These are featured north to south.

Head farmer Nathan Peitso runs his family farm and the Beverly Center’s Farmhouse, where the meals are as fresh as one would expect.

While the Atwater Village location will fully take on Super Bowl Sunday with the game on and a happy hour menu from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m., the Beverly Hills arm will be a haven of peaceful meals with wood-oven flatbreads, avocado hummus, and not a TV in sight.

Super Bowl Sunday might be the perfect almost genius time to head over to Howlin’ Rays. Wait times can typically run up to three hours, but with most of the city watching the local team fight for the championship, why not give it a try?
