Cecconi's is a classic Italian restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as cicchetti (Italian tapas), seven days a week. We are located on the corner of Melrose Avenue and Robertson Boulevard in West Hollywood. Join us for a meal in the main restaurant, on the terrace, or at the bar with its wood-burning oven. Have a party in the Butterfly Room with seating for up to 40 people. The Butterfly Room private hire offers intimate fine dining, a private entrance is also available. We accept reservations two weeks in advance. The bar is open daily from 11am until close, serving the full menu and cicchetti. Reservations are not accepted for the bar. Our Midnight Menu is served Thursday through Saturday from 11pm to 1am and features a selection of cicchetti and dolci.

This James Beard Award winning restaurant with a clientele as diverse as San Francisco opened in 1979. A vibrant Parisian-style standing-only copper bar greets you as you enter on Rose Alley. Zuni's menu changes daily with dishes inspired by traditional Italian and French recipes. Nearly all of the produce, meat, and fish served at Zuni is farmed and harvested in a sustainable manner. Even without a reservation, bar tables are available on a first come, first served basis and the full menu is available. The bar also serves traditional cocktails made with top-shelf ingredients; refreshments at its best in an environment of effortless hospitality. Whether you dine early or prefer to dine after theater, Zuni is a welcoming haven. -Judy Rodgers, chef/co-owner -Gilbert Pilgram, co-owner

"Going to Zuni Cafe continues to be a yearly staple every Christmas holiday when coming up to San Francisco to celebrate. This time didn't disappoint at all. We were craving that ROASTED CHICKEN with BREAD SALAD that you share for 2. And We did and it was so good - AHHHH MAYYYYY ZING - love it love it love it. I have been going to ZUNI since it's first opening back in the ESPRIT years when I lived in SF in the 80's. We'd go there after 10PM to have the best burger in town and the best Caesar Salad. And this time - the Caesar was still flawless and that CHICKEN was seriously amazing. Thank you for making my holiday special. And make sure you order for dessert - the GATEAUX VICTOIRE! VICTORY CAKE! It was so good - and very memorable."

BLD IS NOW ACCEPTING RESERVATIONS FOR PARTIES OF FIVE OR MORE DURING BRUNCH.<br /><br />Within its sunny space BLD (breakfast, lunch, dinner) is both a popular neighborhood spot as well as a great destination restaurant. This latest venture of husband and wife team Neal and Amy Knoll Fraser with partner Richard Drapkin, is another successful collaboration of the talented team from Grace Restaurant just down the street. At BLD diners can remain comfortable all day long in a friendly, upscale café atmosphere. The enticing space and the service are approachable from the moment the doors open early in the morning until they finally close late at night. BLD has become the go-to spot for all day gourmet comfort food. House-made pastries, salads, sandwiches, and more feature seasonal ingredients. The all-day charcuterie and artisanal cheese section may just be LA’s answer to the ultimate bar food.

"Was on a quick time line to eat a good lunch. And Open Table showed me that there was a reservation open at the right time! So went there and food was great - TOMATO SOUP and then I had a TUNA SANDWICH WITH GREENS and the best was the YELLOW CAKE with some serious Chocolate Frosting. oh hello!"
