After the Run: Local Favorites

Village Fish Market This restaurant has CLOSED its doors... sadly :-(
26791 Agoura Rd, Calabasas CA — (818) 871-0500
Jersey Mike's Subs Try the chipotle steaks sandwich quite good
Sushi Nishi Wow. Best bento box I've had. Get the sushi with spicy tuna maki. This is above average fish.
26799 Agoura Rd, Calabasas CA — (818) 878-9030
La Paz Mexican Restaurant Trying to get someone to refill your margarita on Sunday brunch is kinda hard especially if you're sitting in the back :/ Good food though! At least they offer refills on margaritas!
Salt Restaurant This place is a breath of fresh air, love it here!!!
Sharky's Woodfired Mexican Grill Pepperdine students get 10% off! #AyoWaves
26527 Agoura Rd, Calabasas CA — (818) 880-0885
Mediterranean Pita Grill The beef kebabs are the best
26527 Agoura Rd, Calabasas CA — (818) 871-0167
Hanami Sushi Lunch service is wicked fast.
26531 Agoura Rd, Calabasas CA — (818) 880-0073
The Old Place A hole in the wall with great food and a casual ambiance -Heidi Hamilton, That Sex Show
Tavern 101 Grill & Tap House Don't be fooled by the new name. This place is still just as good as before. The tri-tip is excellent, I'd recommend that.
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.
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
The Canyon Bistro & Wine Bar in Topanga The salmon burger!!!! And if course truffles fries ----
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!!!
Cafe Mimosa Since the day it opened, this quaint little cafe has been a great spot to start the day.
The Country Kitchen Best burgers in town!
Casa Nostra Hands down the best food in the Palisades. And one of the best italian restaurants in LA.
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.
