Eat with locals in Los Angeles

Home to one of the most dynamic dining scenes in the country, the city of angels offers everything from street food to Michelin-starred restaurants, from celebrity favorites to local hidden gems. Whether that's a delicious Thai taco, French toast, or breakfast burrito, the LA food scene is far more diverse than fried chicken, french fries, or the typical US hot dogs. We'll introduce you to the best Thai food a tasting menu has to offer, incredible Mexican food in the very best restaurants, or teach you how to replicate the great food from all over LA in your own dining room. Explore every corner with Eatwith, from Santa Monica to Long Beach and back, taking in West Hollywood and Venice Beach on the way. We'll introduce you to our warm, local hosts, as we look at where to eat in Los Angeles for the most authentic LA experience.

Tour Los Angeles restaurants like a local!

Brunch on Sundays? Angelenos—as the southern California L.A. locals call themselves—love it! From a one-of-a-kind dining experience with celebrity chefs to takeout dishes from a food truck, Los Angeles has endless food options that nobody would have their appetites left unsatisfied. Los Angeles does not need advertisements to get that vibrant restaurant scene out of your imagery. We'll help you explore every inch of this unique food city, from the LA fine dining experience to the humble neighborhood restaurant and the amazing highlights of Grand Central Market. Get a fresh cup of coffee by the beach, then breakfast tacos in Compton – just make sure you save room for the indulgent sweets and desserts from north, south, east, and west LA. We'll head to Downtown Los Angeles—or DTLA for short—for specialty meat dishes and natural wine at an open-roof bar or classic dining room. In LA, you can taste amazing dishes of every food trend before they go viral. Fine dining? We got it. Comfort food? That too. You want hot dogs and a good coffee on Thai taco Tuesday? Break the rules—you're in LA, after all—you can have it all. Book yourself a reservation at some of the world's most hyped restaurants: from BADMAASH, Eggslut, Ronan, BLVD, to Ori Menashe's Bestia. Alternatively, try a takeout meal from Chinatown or something more leisurely in the San Gabriel Valley. Get your one-of-a-kind dining experience here in Los Angeles. Uncover each of LA's neighborhood hidden gems from Sonoratown to Hollywood Hills. Our Eatwith hosts are more than ready to share with you all the recommendations, tips, places, dishes, and, of course, hospitality, to take your LA traveling experience to the next level. The restaurants in Los Angeles don't just make good food – they make great food, steeped in the best atmosphere and loaded with LA magic.
