Experiencing food from Los Angeles’ top trending chefs. The Los Angeles food scene is astir.

Restaurant hopping around Los Angeles

Here are a few examples of chefs who have risen to the top of the heap in Los Angeles. You can’t go wrong if you dine at any of their restaurants. In fact, you’d be missing out if you didn’t.

The rockin’ trio

Chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo have created a refined food culture across their four Los Angeles restaurants. Their cooking style is brazen to say the least. Before opening their first restaurant, they cut their teeth (pun intended) by founding a successful catering company, landing a show on The Food Network, and penning a popular cookbook.

When they opened Animal in West Los Angeles, bold offerings such as crispy pig ear, rich bone marrow, chicken liver toast, and veal tongue incited a foodie revelation for Angelenos. The menu helped broaden palates to welcome new ingredients. Animal is no place for timid eaters or dieters, but if you’re adventuresome, it’s worth a try. Be sure to make a reservation or come right at opening hours to get a place at the bar.

Viewfinder Tip: Because Los Angeles traffic can be unpredictable, allow yourself plenty of travel-time to get to dinner reservations on time.

With their second spot, Son of A Gun, the Shook/Dotolo duo provided another opportunity for diners to experience some truly innovative cuisine, this time with an emphasis on seafood. The lobster roll and the shrimp toast are things of beauty.
