50 Must Try Restaurants in Greater Los Angeles

by / 7 months ago

So you’re planning a trip to L.A. and now you’re wondering where to eat? Over the past few years we’ve been cultivating a list of our favorite places to eat and things to do. I feel pretty lucky because as part of my husband’s job, he gets to drive around all over L.A. and try new restaurants. Doing so, he also gets to see lots of different areas and meet new people who play a huge role in inspiring our weekend adventures.

We grew up in a pretty typical suburban town filled with mass retailers and chain restaurants. Now that we are living in one of the biggest (and most awesome) cities in the U.S. we’ve been challenging ourselves to kick our comfort zones to the curb and try new things. It has been quite the adventure.
