Restaurants

Triple Beam Pizza

calendar May 18 & 19

The Infatuation's #1 ranked pizza place in Los Angeles, this Highland Park spot is from the people behind Pizzeria Mozza and Everson Royce Bar.

Luv2Eat Thai Bistro

calendar May 18 & 19

There are a lot of legendary Thai restaurants in LA that have been open for years and years. Luv2Eat has only been open for five years, but it's already achieved legendary status.

Freedman's

calendar May 18 & 19

This Silverlake spot serves some incredible Jewish comfort food, and was one of Infatuation LA's Best New Restaurants Of 2018.

Bibi Ji

calendar May 18 & 19

Katy Perry might be Santa Barbara's most famous export, but our real SB M.V.P. is Indian restaurant Bibi Ji, which has a 9.0 Infatuation rating.

Tacos Y Birria La Unica

calendar May 18 & 19

This is a Boyle Heights truck making incredible goat and beef birria, and the weekend lines here can get intense. The people need their quesatacos (that's a quesadilla-taco mash-up that's as good as it sounds).

Ma'am Sir

calendar May 18 & 19

A couple bites in to the longganisa sandwich from Ma'am Sir and you'll probably start looking for real estate in Silver Lake just so you can live closer to this Filipino spot.

Mariscos Jalisco

calendar May 18

A taco truck that can usually be found on Olympic Blvd. in Boyle Heights, Mariscos Jalisco is a living legend. They're bringing their seafood tacos and tostadas to EEEEEATSCON for Saturday only.

SLAB

calendar May 18 & 19

What started as a guy smoking meat in his Studio City backyard has become SLAB, a BBQ spot on West 3rd. St with excellent brisket and ribs, plus sides that almost steal the show.

Salt & Straw Handmade Ice Cream

calendar May 18 & 19

This Portland-import puts stuff in ice cream that probably shouldn't be in ice cream. But somehow, it always works out, and is some of the best around.

Everson Royce Bar

calendar May 18 & 19

The Arts District's ERB has bar food worth driving from the Westside for. It's also home to The Infatuation's favorite burger in LA. For two days only, it'll be available in Santa Monica.

BBQ + Rice

calendar May 18 & 19

How interesting can an order-at-the-counter rice bowl place be? When it's BBQ + Rice's Korean bowls, extremely interesting.

Jame Enoteca

calendar May 18 & 19

A tiny shop in a strip mall in El Segundo, Jame Enoteca makes some of the best handmade pasta in the city.

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

calendar May 18 & 19

Founded in Columbus, Ohio, Jeni's makes some of America's best ice cream. Expect unusual flavors.

Sticky Rice

calendar May 18 & 19

Originally a small stall in Grand Central Market, Sticky Rice has since expanded to more space in the market, an Echo Park location, and has become one of LA's best spots for Thai street food.

The Beefsteaks

calendar May 18 & 19

The moment we tried The Beefsteaks' steak and chips at London street market two years ago, we began devising plans to bring them to EEEEEATSCON. We couldn't be more excited that those plans have come to fruition. Also, "chips" means fries, and they're some of the best you'll ever have.

BÄCOSHOP

calendar May 18 & 19

It's not every restaurant that invents a new kind of food. A bäco is a kind-of taco, kind-of pita sandwich, and kind of a thing we wish we'd thought of first.

Guelaguetza

calendar May 18 & 19

When a restaurant's url is ilovemole.com, they're doing something right. The mole at this classic Oaxacan spot lives up to the hype.

Shake Shack x Petit Trois

calendar May 18 & 19

Shake Shack and Petit Trois are kind of like the Power Rangers of burgers. Pretty great on their own, but when their powers combine, that's when things get really impressive. Get this collaboration exclusively at EEEEEATSCON.

Milk Bar

calendar May 18 & 19

Los Angeles got its first Milk Bar location last year, meaning we no longer have to fly across the country for birthday truffles, elaborate cakes, and crack pie.

L'Artusi

calendar May 18 & 19

As any recently-relocated New Yorker will tell you, Italian restaurants in NYC are something pretty special. One of Infatuation NYC's favorites, L'Artusi (rated a 9.5), is coming to EEEEEATSCON LA, and they'll be bringing a lot of pasta.

Philippe The Original

calendar May 18 & 19

Who cares who invented the French Dip? The one at Philippe is hands down the best. Our friends at Postmates are helping us bring this legendary sandwich to EEEEEATSCON.

HomeState

calendar May 19

Breakfast tacos are weirdly hard to find in this taco-filled city, but it doesn't really matter because we have HomeState. They're coming to EEEEEATSCON for Sunday only.

Trejo's Coffee & Donuts

calendar May 18 & 19

Some actors become writers or directors. Some actors open donut shops. We're glad Danny Trejo opened a donut shop.
