Eataly

Perfect For: Impressing Out of Towners Lunch

This giant Italian market and food hall already in NYC and Chicago is finally in Los Angeles, even if though you have to deal with the Westfield Century City mall to get there.

There are three sit-down restaurants in Eataly, as well as a bunch of stalls specializing in one type of food. Il Pesce Cucina is run by the Providence chef, and has very solid Italian seafood. La Piazza seems is the most useful of the restaurants - it’s a counter-service one serving salumi plates, lasagna, meatballs, and various Italian comfort foods. The last sit-down restaurant option is La Pizza & La Pasta, which often has the longest waits and predictably, pizza and pasta.

At the counters throughout the market you can get Roman-style pizza by the slice, roast meats, salads, pastries, and some of the best bombolone we’ve ever had. We’d advise coming with a plan of what you want to hit, heading here during the week if you can to avoid the lines, and definitely saving room for those bombolone.
