Food & Drink

After the Run: Local Favorites

Palisades Garden Cafe Mediterranean sandwich and a taro frozen drink, or a chai frozen drink. So refreshing!
Chipotle Mexican Grill That new Queso hits the spot
The Pearl Dragon Everyone here is the best! Love you my pearl dragon family.
Beech Street Cafe Ask for Leigh! And if she's serving you, ask about the girls with the stuffed chicken and you will get a free cupcake.
Tivoli Cafe Cant go wrong with the penne alfredo with chicken and the caprese is the best in town
Cafe Vida - Pacific Palisades The Morning Wrap is wonderful
Ronny's Market, Liquor, Deli and Grill Avoid between 3 and 4 on weekdays. That's when the middle school/high school crowd rushes in
Gladstones Seafood is the true star at the Malibu institution along the Pacific Coast Highway, which draws celebs like Pink and Ryan Seacrest, who drop in for chowder or lobster – and Pacific Ocean views.
Vittorio's Garlic knots: ✔ Crushed ice in my diet coke: ✔ With the love of my life:✔
Taste at the Palisades Great diverse menu! Everything was delicious.
Reel Inn Adam went for the Pacific Halibut on his visit. As seen on Travel Channel’s Man v. Food Nation.
Cholada Thai French actress Elodie Bouchez doesn’t hesitate to take the drive out to this LA eatery and sit outside for lunch or dinner. Check out more spots in LA that she can’t loves at the LV Amble Site.
Casa Nostra Hands down the best food in the Palisades. And one of the best italian restaurants in LA.
The Country Kitchen Best burgers in town!
Cafe Mimosa Since the day it opened, this quaint little cafe has been a great spot to start the day.
Rocco's in the Canyon Rocco's combo is my recommendation. Although, the meat they use is like weird ground beef patty slices. Add chopped pepperoncinis and voila!!!
The Canyon Bistro & Wine Bar in Topanga The salmon burger!!!! And if course truffles fries ----
Inn of the Seventh Ray If I were to be planning a wedding this place would be on the list. The organic menu can not be forgotten about either. The foods good and the ambiance is one of the most memorable in the city
Topanga Living Cafe Some of the best Food in Topanga Canyon...
The Topanga Table Everything is wonderful here even the classic old vinyl played on the turntable. Try the toasts and don't miss the waffle or the Benedict! Excellent food just hidden in Topanga.
