Erewhon Studio City
The first time we went to Erewhon in Studio City, we were convinced it was LA's premier location. The serene interior has no hot bar bottlenecks, and if you want some sunshine, you can eat your $21 sushi sandwich on one of the floating patio decks (yes) in the Sportsmen’s Lodge’s courtyard. The only reason it now lands at #4 is the current parking situation. As the Lodge’s redevelopment continues to bring in big-name brands, finding a parking spot now means battling it out with people who are determined to drop $700 on Parachute bath towels. Sorry, but we aren’t double parking our car and leaving keys with an overwhelmed attendant just to drink an almond-butter smoothie.
