The Nice Guy
The Nice Guy opened in 2014 and is one of the few LA clubstaurants that can rightfully claim to be just as popular now as it was back then. The tiny, bungalow-like space on La Cienega is constantly filled with eager, well-dressed 25-year-olds whose parents are definitely covering rent and the occasional celebrity there to promote a product line. The most surprising aspect about this Weho spot, however, is the food. The Italian-leaning menu isn’t redefining the cuisine, but the fact you’re served pizza that comes out nicely charred and the rigatoni arrives al dente is, in the world of clubstaurants, basically like getting past the door guy in flip flops—a rarity.
