Craving fresh fish and sushi? K-Zo in Culver City is a great spot to visit. They have other non-sushi dishes on the menu for your friends who prefer to eat their food cooked. Try their “Purple Parfait” for dessert if you want to try something new.

Mo-Chica

Los Angeles, CA 90014
(213) 622-3744

The brain child of acclaimed chef, Ricardo Zarate, Mo-Chica has re-opened in a brand new location in Downtown LA. Their Peruvian food is robust and full of flavor. If you have never tried Alpaca meat (think smaller Llama), this is the place to have it for the first time.

Scarpetta

225 N Canon Dr
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
(866) 286-0213

Owned by Food Network star Chef Scott Conant, Scarpetta’s spaghetti is equally as famous. Although it is not on the Dine LA menu, it is a very simple dish that is a classic and a must try. Another must try? Their creamy polenta with truffled mushrooms. You will not regret it.

A brightly decorated restaurant in Venice serving Caribbean food, Sunny Spot, will definitely put you in a good mood. Drink some tropical punch while you devour that Jerk Chicken.
