OUR WMM CURATED GUIDE FOR YOUR VISIT
OUR (P)RESIDENT FOODIE BREAKS
DOWN HER FAVE SPOTS CLOSEBY
(6667 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, CA 90028)
Check out old school, Hollywood glamour at this famous
LA joint. Prices have definitely risen since they opened in
1919, so consider this place a bit of a splurge or
just swing by their bar for a classic martini.
(626 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004)
Get a taste of California cuisine at this casual, counter style restaurant then take a stroll down the super cute street of Larchmont and grab ice cream at Salt and Straw!
(240 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004)
This Portland, OR based ice cream shop has some of the most unique, seasonal flavors you’ve ever tried. They change every month but a couple past faves were Goat Cheese Marionberry Habanero and Birthday Cakes and Blackberries.
(5273 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90027)
(5210 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90038)
Hop in a quick Uber and check out this mid-range, Italian comfort food spot.
(3014 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90006)
A bit of a drive from The Broadwater but this is a great spot for authentic Oaxacan Mexican food!
WHERE YOU MIGHT SPOT
PROGRAMMING DIRECTOR WHIT SPURGEON
ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE FROM THE BROADWATER
Most evenings, the taco truck across the street by the gas station (we think it's called Chiquis) serves up the freshest, inexpensive selection of Mexican street eats.
(1123 Vine St # 11, Los Angeles, CA 90038)
Around the corner on Vine, Nat's lacks in ambiance, but the food is excellent and the prices are right.
(6547 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038)
Down the street on Santa Monica (heading west) is a good sandwich/coffee option with good pastries, too. Just next to the Hudson Theater.
(1006 Seward St, Los Angeles, CA 90038)
A piece of old NYC history (but the Hollywood location promises to be even tastier)! Not cheap, but not ridiculous
(6254 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90038)
Specializing in Korean Fried Chicken and cauliflower, but also offering vegetarian and vegan options. Greattakeout, just a block away from the fest!
Trejo's Tacos Hollywood
(1556 N Cahuenga Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90028)
Trejo's Coffee and Donuts
(6785 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90038)
Yes, THAT Trejo. Turns out the on-screen killer also makes killer tacos, donuts AND coffee! Both walking distance from the festival.
AND... A FEW MORE SPOTS TO EAT
BECAUSE WE LOVE FOOD AS MUCH AS WE LOVE FILM
(7205 Santa Monica Boulevard West Hollywood, CA 90046)
Classic American. Great bar. Lively Hollywood joint. Never fails.
(7156 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046)
Right across the street from Jones, is the remodeled Hollywood treasure
that is The Formosa Cafe, to cure a hankering for inventive Chinese food.
(6600 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028)
Trigger warning: Carnivores only. The restaurant is a pretty penny,
but the butcher shop within serves up affordable sandwiches
with deli cuts (and all the fixins) nowhere else to be found in the city.
(6290 Sunset Blvd Hollywood, CA 90028)
Yes, it's a chain, but sometimes you just want a big, dependable
salad (and olive loaf). There are many throughout the city,
but the closest one to the theater is on Vine and Sunset
(a few blocks north).
(8401 Santa Monica Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90069)
Extensive menu of super healthy eats from around the world,
with a leaning towards Latin cuisine.
(1155 N. Highland Ave Los Angeles, CA 90038)
Farm to table deliciousness that California does well. Open all day.
(8222 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048)
Authentic Indian food with a nice atmosphere.
Great for groups.
(4156 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029)
The restaurant sits at the end of the Santa Monica Blvd.
(just before Sunset Junction) and serves up really inventive takes on Mediterranean classics. Pricey, but so worth it!
(7119 Melrose Ave, Hollywood, CA 90046)
Healthy. Like macrobiotic diet healthy. Great grab and go items.
Next to Tatsu.
(7111 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046)
Ramen that is anything but the packaged, salty
treat you existed on in college.
(7181 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90046)
Farm to table Brazilian barbecue and then some.
Perfect for late night cravings.
(1040 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069)
Every single thing on this Provencal French menu is divine. Dine in only!
(603 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069)
Southeast Asian cuisine meets American lounge.
EP is the restaurant. LP is the rooftop bar that serves small
plates from the restaurant. Sort of a scene, but tasty all the same.
