Consistently regarded as one of the best restaurants in town, this flagship of Joachim Splichal's Pinot-based hot spots is located inside the Walt Disney Concert Hall. It will not disappoint you. It is a favorite of the executives at neighboring Paramount Studios, so chances are good for celebrity sightings. The seasonal roasted white asparagus is wonderful as is the poached Maine lobster with spring peas, young alliums and lemon thyme. Be sure to ask about the special dishes that change nightly. The wine list is outstanding, but if you choose to bring your own, there is a corkage fee.
Both the rustic, homey interior and the dainty outdoor seating evoke the vibe of an inviting Parisian café on a lively street.

Figaro's coffees occupy a special place in the hearts of many enchanted locals, who have adopted Figaro as their caffeine mecca. Happy hour at Figaro is a great boon with most prices slashed in half.
Renowned chef Ludovic Lefebvre's first non-pop-up opened to wild anticipation from city foodies and die-hard fans. Trois Mec steers clear of the traditional restaurant concepts and is almost a secretive and exclusive place to dine. The restaurant signage belongs to the old establishment and there's no attempt to change that. There are no walk-ins, and diners are required to reserve by way of tickets for the evening. On offer is a regularly changing five-course set menu featuring the chef's cutting-edge preparations. The wood-dominated interiors, seating just 24 diners, are an elegant affair. Reservations are offered two weeks in advance and are highly recommended.

French classics like the chicken and beef dishes are consistently well-prepared and the pastas and nightly specials will ensure that there is something for everyone. If you have been wishing that you could rendezvous in Europe with the one you love, this place might just tide you over until you can get there. Late-night dining is available.
