Want to meet one of your favorite celebs? Well, these dining spots will be a step in the right direction. There are always celebs in these restaurants, making them the most popular restaurants in all of Los Angeles (plus more.. they are just coming in a later post:).
Make sure you come dressed to the nines at these places, because celebs don’t eat at normal restaurants.
The Ivy & Ivy at The Shore happens to be my two favorite restaurants in Los Angeles for lunch, as well as some of the biggest celebs in the business. You will always see a celeb walking in and out of The Ivy. They offer the best cocktails on the West Coast, hands down.. cough, cough the Sangria! When you walk up the steps and through the doors, they treat you like a celebrity instantly. The staff is top notch and so is the food. The floral decor, airy patio and dining rooms make this a must eat place when in LA. Get the Lobster Pasta with the Pink Sauce and the Sangria for me! Your taste buds will thank you. If you see me there, which most likely you will, flag me down , tell me you read this and I’ll buy you a drink. Read a article, get a free Ivy drink, sounds good to me! :)
The Polo Lounge is a hip hotel ultra luxe lounge with an art deco theme offering refined Californian fare, amazing cocktails & a lovely Sunday jazz brunch. The clientele just happen to be Hollywood’s biggest stars. Sip on the “Think Pink” cocktail while enjoying the tossed in front of you, delicious “McCarthy Salad.” They are open daily from 7 AM-1:30 AM at the Beverly Hills hotel! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Le Pain Quotidian means “Daily Bread” in French. They happily serve simple, elegant boulangerie fare along with freshly baked pastries & bread made with organic ingredients. It draws a huge crowd of organic food lovers & celebs alike! LPQ is mostly popular during the breakfast and brunch hours offering a healthy start to your day. Make sure to get the Avocado Bread while you’re dining there. It is simply delicious. Bon appetite!

Il Pastaio is the place to eat in Beverly Hills. Why, you ask? The food of course. If you don’t believe me, ask the A-list celebs sitting next to you while you’re dining, they’ll be straight up with you. It’s a cute upscale Italian restaurant, serving great specials daily along with great pasta and wine.
Palmeri Ristorante is located in the affluent neighborhood of Brentwood, serving high end clientele for many years (& it is 6 minutes walking distance from my house:) If you haven’t heard of Brentwood before, let me fill you in quickly.. OJ Simpson made it an infamous Los Angeles tourist stop for YEARS! But, some of the biggest names in the industry live here as well and are often seen perusing the streets and restaurants. Palmeri’s Chef is one of the best in the business. He is often at the restaurant, working hard in the kitchen, making the best Sicilian dishes in LA!
Tavern is also another Brentwood hot spot for celebs. They offer AMAZING breakfast items that draws the right crowd! The whos who of the celeb world eats at this quaint Brentwood eatery. The simple menu makes ordering a breeze. They also offer really good lunch and dinner as well!
