Plan Ahead and Book the Hottest Restaurants in Los Angeles

Summer is upon us, and the most popular restaurants in Los Angeles will certainly book up…some, even months in advance.  Keep in mind, unlike Las Vegas, New York, London, etc., Los Angeles isn’t that late of a city. Usually the preferred sit down time at hot restaurants is between 8PM-9PM.  By booking in advance, chances are you won’t be offered a corner table by the kitchen before 6PM, or after 1030PM. Depending on proximity between venues, we usually suggest arriving early at a nearby restaurant or bar and having a drink, then enjoying dinner under your reservation at another spot, and then perhaps a nightcap at one more location.  Phew!  Sounds like a lot, but it’s 3 birds with one
