The Eater LA heatmap has existed for more than 15 years as a place to answer the age-old question of “Where should I eat tonight?” Though the scene has gone through tremendous challenges in the past nearly two years, the city’s spirit of breaking ground and exploring new cuisines continues with every month of openings.
This month, everything from a stellar new sushi counter to a pasta aficionado’s studio have come to life, with a swanky Downtown Italian-American spot and a massive Hollywood property inspired by the recording industry debuting as well. It’s an exciting time to explore what LA has to offer in terms of new restaurants.
Typically places on this list are less than six months old, giving a sense of what’s new. For restaurants that have established themselves as one of the city’s essential places to eat, check out the Eater LA Essential 38. Restaurants are placed on the map in geographical order, from west to east.
