Small Town is an American place in a bungalow space in Silver Lake. It’s set back from Rowena, with hard-to-spot signage - but once you find it, you’ll see a patio full of mostly Silver Lake residents eating good American-ish food. The food is all fresh and simple, and it’s hard to go wrong with anything from the short menu. Start with the sesame dinner rolls and one of the salads, and go from there. Next time you have a date or a catch-up meal with friends on the Eastside, this is a great place to do it.

Commerson is a generic-looking seafood restaurant on La Brea with food that’s actually pretty interesting.
Big, bustling, and once a gamechanger for DTLA. Unfortunately, unlike most of LA’s residents, Bottega Louie is not aging well.
Suggested by our writers
Little Pine is seemingly the most stereotypical LA restaurant in history. Except one thing - they aren't worried about it.
