Drake's Hollywood

Melrose in West Hollywood is full of expensive, over-the-top restaurants you can skip. Drake’s is one more you can add to the list. This tacky Italian and sushi clubstaurant hails from Dallas and goes all in on the Old Hollywood theme: big red booths, a horseshoe-shaped bar, and a giant mural of “famous” people that includes Joe Rogan. While there are a couple of standout dishes (like a wedge salad with champagne vinaigrette), there's no need to visit a Hollywood-inspired restaurant from Texas when Dan Tana’s, an actual Old Hollywood restaurant, is two blocks away.
