West Hollywood has one of the hippest vibes of all neighborhoods in Los Angeles and one of the most welcoming, too. Whether you're gluten-free, eat organic, crave meat or want something fattening and delicious, the various gay restaurants in Los Angeles will cater to your every foodie whim.
West Hollywood’s best restaurants have a modern feel and are great people-watching spots, frequent with double takes. While the city has many gay-specific restaurants on Santa Monica Boulevard, pretty much all restaurants are outrageously LGBT-friendly.
You never know who you will see in West Hollywood! Lady Gaga has been seen dining out at Lisa Vanderpump’s PUMP, which serves epic brunches and fine cocktails in a fairy-tale outdoor space. The restaurant, along with Vanderpump’s other project SUR were both featured in her reality TV show on E!
Fiesta Cantina is a favorite Mexican joint on Santa Monica Boulevard. You'll drool over the authentic food on the menu (and maybe over the hot waiters serving you). With cheap (and gigantic) margaritas, you might just have a new favorite spot. Hamburger Mary's West Hollywood is the place to go in the city for a bit of beef... with the campy vibe straight out of a John Waters flick.
Being so close to the ocean, one of the top gay restaurants in Los Angeles for seafood is Connie & Ted's. Owned by a couple who love food, you'll find everything from New England clam chowder to freshly-steamed fish on the menu.
On the East Side, Silver Lake’s The Black Cat gastropub serves classic American fare in the historical monument, preserving the site of one of the first queer riots in American LGBT history. Nearby, 33 Taps puts on the best RuPaul’s Drag Race viewing party and bingo in the city!
