Everywhere you look in California, you’ll see influences of Mexican cuisine. For the best, head to Gracias Madre (graciasmadre.co). It’s 100% vegan but its ingredients would fool the fussiest of eaters.
E.P. & L.P. (eplosangeles.com) is the place to be on just about any night. Head up to the rooftop for the real deal. Overlooking the skyline, the drinks are strong, the beats are heavy and as the night goes on, the party gets louder.
