The Best New School Diners in Los Angeles



Beachwood Cafe

Patti Peck revamped Village Coffee Shop, the last stop for sustenance on the rise to the Hollywood sign, in 2012. Architect Barbara Bestor spearheaded the design for Beachwood Café, which includes pine beams, marble counter and tables, and colorful blue and yellow tiles. Signature Geoff McFetridge wallpaper sports panels of mod flowers, diamonds, and surfboards. Signs pronounce “GOOD FOOD GOOD MOOD,” which may have something to do with the case of pastries and pies by the register. The menu at breakfast, lunch, and dinner is teeming with global touches. Breakfast builds on scrambles and griddled “morning glory” with quinoa Muesli. Lunch revolves around salads, sandwiches, and bowls. Dinner is Beachwood Café’s most ambitious meal, spanning from French coq au vin Provencal to Japanese somen with seared yellowtail and chile vinaigrette.
