Los Angeles boasts beautiful scenery, from shimmering downtown skylines to incredible coastal seascapes. Since we prefer a nice meal while enjoying our surroundings (let’s face it, we prefer a nice meal while doing anything), we set out to find the city’s best restaurants coupled with the most breathtaking views. Feast your eyes and your tastebuds on our top 5 picks:
WP24 by Wolfgang Puck, The Ritz-Carlton, DTLA: Sitting on the 24th floor of The Ritz-Carlton, W24 by Wolfgang Puck delivers upscale Asian Fusion fare along with an extensive wine list of more than 400 labels to quench any wine aficionado’s thirst. Not only does WP24 offer award-winning cuisine, the panoramic view of downtown los angeles is on display for all to see.
The Penthouse, The Huntley Hotel, Santa Monica: Huntley Santa Monica Beach’s crown jewel, without a question, is its striking Penthouse Restaurant and Lounge. Get a taste of the view to come with a ride in the all-glass elevator up to the restaurant on the 18th floor. Enjoy contemporary American cuisine with a front row seat to the beautiful Santa Monica coastline.
Yamashiro, Hollywood Hills: Head up into the Hollywood hills to the Japanese castle replica that is Yamashiro. Taste their Asian-inspired Californian dining options to go along with an unparalleled view of glamorous Hollywood. Executive Chef Brock Kleweno flawlessly combines influence from the Far East with sustainable California ingredients, creating a unique and exciting menu.
Geoffrey’s Restaurant, Malibu: Want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city? Geoffrey’s Restaurant is the place to do it. Relax in style, while taking in the sweeping views of the Pacific and enjoying that Malibu sunshine. Brunch at Geoffrey’s has become a Malibu hot spot, so get there early to indulge in their Ahi Tuna Tartar or Famous Bloody Mary.
The Sky Room, Long Beach: Staying true to its name, The Sky Room is perched on the top floor of the historic Breakers Hotel in Long Beach. Consistently winning Open Table’s Diners’ Choice Awards for Best Overall, Best Ambiance, Best Service, Most Romantic, and Best Scenic View, this crowd-pleasing establishment lives up to the acclaim.
