I am such a foodie. I love to eat at new restaurants and experience new cuisines. But, I also love beautiful views the restaurants have to offer. I mean, who wouldn’t? Los Angeles provides breathtaking views almost everyday. I’m going to tell you about my five favorite views from a restaurant table, this month. I hope you enjoy. 🍽🍴
Cast & Plow: Cast & Plow is a cute, swanky, view-filled eatery in Marina Del Ray. It is in the hip Ritz Carlton hotel by the marina. It offers new American fare (I used to not know what that was, but “fare” means “food” :) and really good wine and cocktails. When you go in, ask for a table outside by the marina. Trust me, you’ll never want to leave. 📸
(Sorry the URL is so long, I had to go through the Ritz Carlton website to find their menu:)
Shutters at the Beach: Shutters on the Beach is another hotel with a awesome view. Located in Santa Monica, it offers outdoor seating with a beach view. It’s just as pretty during the day, as it is at night. It is a upscale hotel, with a laid back, beachy vibe. You can wear flip-flops or heels, no one cares. You can park your car at the hotel and go and enjoy the beautiful beach, or rent a bike and ride down to Venice Beach. The possibilities are endless at this cute hotel.
The Penthouse: Go 18 floors above Santa Monica and you will find this trendy American eatery. It is famed for its cocktails and its amazing panoramic city and beach views. It is perched atop the Huntley Hotel, and you can take a glass elevator all the way up! I always get the Bellini at the Beach and the homemade ice cream; it is to die for.
Yamashiro: Have you watched, “Memoirs of a Geisha,” “Sayonara,” “I Spy,” “Perry Mason,” “Gone in 60 Seconds,” “Leathal Weapon 4,” “Route 66,” honestly I could go for days. Yamashiro has been in SO MANY Hollywood films since the late 20’s. It is located right behind the Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. It has been a hot spot for the Hollywood elite since the early 20’s. It offers a sushi & Cal-Asian fare served overlooking the Hollywood Hills and a beautiful scenic garden with Koi ponds. Magical isn’t the word for this historic place.
Tower Bar, Sunset Towers: Some of the best food in Los Angeles is served in the hip WEHO area (West Hollywood:). Tower Bar is Los Angeles’ best kept secret. This famed art deco hotel eatery offers a great view of all of Los Angeles in a chic manner. Tower Bar has a chic clubby decor atmosphere, French-American fare and a great selection of jazz music. It offers nothing less than amazing food, wine and cocktails. Now I see why the A-Lister’s are always dining at this upscale Hollywood treasure. I always get the Southside cocktail, and the Cucumber Mojito. They are to die for. Bring a big pocketbook as well, Hollywood’s best kept secrets always come with a hefty price tag.
PS. They don’t allow pictures at all due to the celebrity clientele. Check out the website for more information.
