Favorite New Los Angeles Restaurants 2016

New restaurants continue to pop up throughout LA. Here are my favorite new Los Angeles restaurants for 2016.

Los Angeles continued to cycle through many new restaurant openings in 2016, as well as more than a few closures. Given my palate for healthier fare, I'm always happy to see the amount of spots with well sourced and veggie-centric dishes. In fact, Los Angeles magazine named Erven, a plant based restaurant, as their number one new restaurant for 2016.  Erven of course made my list as well with their unique vegan creations.

It wasn't all veggies though. There were also some meat-centric restaurant openings like Gwen and the Cannibal that made my list, but I liked that they served plant based sides as well. Luckily the arrival of the metro allowed for a little more convenient travel between Santa Monica and downtown LA, but I still have many more restaurants to try. It's nice to have some early goals for 2017! 

Looking forward to trying these new 2016 LA restaurants too: Destroyer, 71 Above, Shibumi, Wolf, PYT, Kali, Here's Looking at You and Kato for 2017. Stay tuned!

Here are my favorite restaurants on Main Street in Santa Monica.

And here are my favorite restaurant around the corner on Rose Avenue in Venice.
