Tips from locals
Wolfgang Puck opened Chinois before he ever considered marketing frozen pizza. He is often on the premises.
Chef Rene Mata is served family style in a festive atmosphere that invites the sharing and tasting of a variety of exciting flavors. Crowded but fun place... one of Wolfgang Puck's shining stars.
It made Wolfgang Puck famous and remains one of the best, iconic restaurants in LA. Three blocks north on Main Street. Expensive but worth it for the experience and the food.
Sophisticated, iconic eatery owned by Wolfgang Puck, specializing in Asian-French fusion cuisine.
It's my favorite special occasion restaurant. Be sure o to order the warm curried oysters, whole deep fried cat fish, and rack of lamb.
