The West Hollywood Takeout & Delivery Guide

30 great spots in West Hollywood where the food will come to you.

Whether you’re craving wood-fired pizza, big boxes of sushi, pad thai, or breakfast, West Hollywood is filled with a vast array of restaurants all currently doing takeout and delivery. Here are 29 of our favorite spots that’ll safely bring the food to you.

The Spots

Brandoni Pepperoni

There are a number of different pizza pop-ups around West Hollywood these days, but none are more experimental than Brandoni Pepperoni. Think toppings that include wild-caught pacific shrimp, triple crème brie, and Spanish octopus. There are 16 different pies on the menu, but our favorite is the “Straight Up Menace,” which comes topped with lamb sausage, arugula, and pickled bell peppers. Pickup only.

After accidentally drinking that second bottle of wine last night, making breakfast for yourself isn’t in the cards this morning. Breakfast By Salt’s Cure can handle that for you. The popular breakfast spot offers things like sausage patties and a very good breakfast sandwich, but the priority here will always be their oatmeal griddle cakes. They’re basically the best pancakes on the planet and will do the legwork when it comes to curing any lingering wine regret. Available for takeout and delivery.

This classic deli will always be at its best at 3am after running into your blackout landlord at Kibitz Room, but since that’s not in the cards right now, just get takeout or delivery instead. Whether you’re in the mood for a hot pastrami sandwich, matzo ball soup, or a slice of cheesecake, Canter’s always delivers. Literally.

The crew behind one of our favorite pasta bars has pivoted to pizza during the pandemic. Operating Thursday through Sunday out of the Tartine Sycamore space, the pop-up has a constantly-changing menu of delicious wood-fired pizzas that range from margherita to birria to potatoes and fontina. Pickup is available through their Instagram, with delivery available on most major apps.

Chao Krung has been a staple on Fairfax for decades, but it wasn’t until a recent revamp that it went from being a neighborhood standby to a place that everybody should be seeking out. The menu is full of standout dishes, particularly when it comes to the curries - the jungle curry and the kaeng hung-ley (sweet pork belly and pork shoulder) are two of our favorites. Call (323) 939-8361 for takeout, and get it for delivery through all major platforms.

Connie & Ted’s is still the place to go for a New England-style seafood feast complete with clam chowder, lobster rolls, and mussels. The paired-down menu is currently available for both takeout and delivery, and that includes some house cocktails as well.

Crossroads is one of our favorite all-vegetarian restaurants in the city with separate brunch, lunch, and dinner menus that feature everything from stuffed French toast to spicy meatball pizza. They’re also doing a separate taco menu right now on weekdays from 11am to 3:30pm. Available for both takeout and delivery.

Nothing in the world beats a wild, martini-drenched night at Dan Tana’s, but since that’s not possible right now, getting takeout and delivery is the next best thing. When it comes to dinner from a seminal Italian restaurant, over-ordering is the only way to do it. We recommend a caesar salad, chicken parm, and more side dishes of pasta than you ever thought imaginable. Call (310) 275-9444 to order.

Over the last few years, hot chicken has become so popular in Los Angeles that it’s hard to sort the great from the good. Dave’s is one of the greats. The new-ish location on Fairfax has both takeout and delivery, and stays open until midnight on the weekends.

El Compadre is one of LA’s most iconic Mexican restaurants, with a large menu full of every kind of combo plate and sizzling fajita platter you could want. That said, no one who drinks comes here without ordering their famous flaming margaritas. While they aren’t actually flaming for takeout (because, you know, car fires), they’re still some of the strongest in town. Open for takeout and delivery seven days a week.

The popular NYC ramen chain opened in the heart of Weho recently and immediately upgraded the neighborhood’s already good ramen options. While their tonkotsu is what brings the crowds, we love the small plates like the karaage and pork buns just as much. Available for takeout and delivery.

Jon & Vinny’s needs no introduction - the Italian restaurant is one of the most popular restaurants in LA, and for good reason. The pizza, pasta, little gem salad, and just about everything else on the menu is the kind of East Coast-style Italian food you can’t really find in LA. Available for takeout and delivery, but be sure to order early - wait times get unruly quickly.

We dream of the day when we’ll be able to cozy up to Jones’s bar with a basket of calamari and a gin martini again, but for now, we’ll happily take both at home. Pretty much the entire regular menu is available for both takeout and delivery right now, and that includes cocktails and their sizzling apple pie dessert.

This noodle soup specialist on La Cienega makes some of the only udon you’ll find in the neighborhood. We love the mentai cream with red caviar, but don’t pass up the broth-based bowls like the niku udon with beef and onions. Takeout and delivery available on all major apps.

La Sorted’s is one of several vendors at the West Hollywood Night Market, which pops-up every weekend next door to Employee’s Only. This tiny stall is cranking out excellent, wood-fired pizza with interesting toppings like pepperoni and honey and artichoke pesto with a perfectly bubbly crust on each pie. They also do focaccia sandwiches on select nights (get the mortadella with pistachio cream). Pickup only.

Madre is a fantastic Oaxacan restaurant that started in Torrance and recently opened a new location on Fairfax. The expansive menu features everything from mole bowls to pozole to chorizo memelas, plus fantastic cocktails to go. If you’re looking to feed the whole family, they also offer different meal kits and group packages. Available for takeout and delivery.

The neighborhood French bistro on Beverly is currently doing their regular dinner menu (the rigatoni bolognese and jamon toast are musts), as well as a “Marvito” menu, which features dishes like burgers, tacos, and even chicken tender baskets. And there’s plenty of to-go wine as well. Available for both takeout and delivery.

The landmark Thai restaurant on The Strip took a while to reopen during the pandemic, but they are finally back with their full menu available for takeout and delivery, plus an extensive list of to-go wine. No order is complete with the panang curry, crispy rice salad, or fried chicken sandwich.

Even after a full year of quarantine (deep breaths), finding a reason to celebrate is still possible. And if a splurge-y, big-meal-in is what’s going to help you most, then order from Norah. The upscale American restaurant on Santa Monica Blvd. is currently offering their regular to-go dinner menu featuring pizzas and big plates of meat, as well as a weekly prix-fixe menu for $65 a person. Available for takeout and delivery.

Noree, the sister restaurant to Hollywood’s iconic Luv2Eat, has the same great food as the original, plus takeout and delivery options as well. Delivery available through most major platforms, or call (323) 937-3100 to order.

This West Hollywood staple is cranking out classic, New York-style pizza that works for either feeding the whole family or a quick solo slice. Pies are 18 inches and come topped with everything from spicy arrabbiata sauce to BBQ chicken, but the sausage-kale is our favorite. Available for takeout and delivery.

LA is filled with excellent sandwich shops, and Potato Chips is one that doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Located on a side street by The Grove, this tiny counter has a tight menu of only ten sandwiches (plus the occasional special) and there isn’t a bad one in the bunch. That said, we always go for either the chicken milanese or turkey. Available for takeout and delivery.

This Italian restaurant on Melrose was one of our favorite new restaurants of 2019 with an excellent menu of wood-fired pizzas, big plates of meat, and a burrata dish that will make you forget about any other burrata you’ve ever eaten. Available for takeout and delivery, 10% off when doing curbside pickup.

Located on W. 3rd, Slab is home to the best BBQ in the neighborhood. The brisket is what most people are there to eat, but don’t ignore the spare ribs and sandwiches, either. Throw in some excellent mac and cheese and a frito pie, and your feast is set. Available for takeout and delivery.

This casual sushi standby has a fantastic daily specials board with affordable nigiri that was probably in the ocean that morning. Ordering can be slightly difficult (they don’t have a website and calling them can be hit or miss), but if you get a busy tone, just keep trying. A takeout box filled with daily nigiri and a moon roll will be worth the wait. Call (310) 855-0006 to order.

If you’re looking for a big splurge sushi moment, it doesn’t get any better than this iconic Sunset Strip sushi bar. And right now its takeout prices are far more reasonable than anything you could get dining in. There’s a 10-course omakase for $65, handroll sets, and “Peter’s Choice,” a package that includes a bento box and eight pieces of premium sushi for $100. Available only for pick-up.
