American Restaurant

“The self-described “Community Pub” may seem like a typical neighborhood gastropub—unfussy cocktails and a selection of beers on tap alongside burgers and the like—but tucked away in Hyperion Public’s elevated backroom, a "hidden pub" provides the backdrop for weekly game and movie nights. Locals gather for happy hour (4-7pm daily) featuring $5 well cocktails, beer and wine, and get their Sunday brunch on with a breakfast egg sandwich and bottomless mimosas.”

Bar

“Edendale, whose name derives from the historical moniker of the Silverlake/Echo Park/Los Feliz region of Los Angeles, is restaurant based out of a former 1920s firehouse. It has an excellent bar and serves up some really great comfort food. ”

American Restaurant

“You’ve probably driven past this nondescript, redbrick building on a residential corner of Silver Lake a hundred times. The only thing that gives it away is a flashing arrow sign. Blair’s is the kind of neighborhood spot where the chef’s wife takes your order and the tables are taken up by locals. The menu is Italian-inspired, but you’d do well to scan it quickly and then just order the gnocchi. Also every meal here should end with the tiramisu. No need to reserve on weeknights—stroll in and take a seat at the dimly lit bar.”

American Restaurant

“Quaint, charming, unforgettable atmosphere with a unique blend of hipster LA, divey bar, and chill Atwater cafe all in one. The seating is plentiful; the parking, not so much but just a three block walk from your magical home away from home. Great brunch and leisurely wine sipping Sundays you won't need to rush to make it in time for brunch, (that ends at 4PM daily). Music and mingle at night on weekends. fun akways1”

“The challenge you to find something more delicious then there fried chicken shwarma. Ask for amba, garlic, and green sauce on the side.”

Dumpling Restaurant
$$
“If you are feeling like Dimsum or dumpling or some fine chinese cuisine, this is the nearest spot in Glendale I would recommend. For an authentic chinese spot, please head towards monterey park or Chinatown! Despite of it being franchise, it serves some of the most quality dimsum. Parking is free valet if you dine in, and they let you park momentarily for pick up. This spot is within walkable distance so please don't hesitate to stop here! It's usually crowded, beware of waiting line. ”

Vietnamese Restaurant

“This is the dish to get: turmeric fish with rice, pickled daikon and dill. Nothing fancy here, but yummy and a little different than your typical pho place, though they do have pho here (the broth is cleaner/lighter than some places.)”

Café

“This is the place to go if you want to bunch of instagrammers and their instagram-worthy brunches with fancy interior design. You will be lining up and will have to street park, but the food is truly delicious and you won't regret it. ”
