An LA-scene extraordinaire. You may well find sidewalk paparazzi stalking celebrity guests and a doorman to check your reservation, but all that's forgotten once you're up in this 3rd-floor rooftop restaurant/bar above WeHo. The Pacific Rim–inspired menu features super-creative cocktails and shared dishes such as truffle sashimi, black-cod lettuce wraps, and scallop and cauliflower with tamarind brown butter.
Add in multiple dining rooms and a wraparound deck with bang-on views of the Pacific Design Center and rooftops of LA, and you've got a first-class spot to preen and be seen. With these views and clientele, Catch could probably get away with pretension, but staff are friendly and professional, and it doesn't hurt that they're model-good-looking, too.
