  • New York-Based Restaurants in L.A.




Los Angeles greets its visitors with its easygoing vibes and a spirit of togetherness. New Yorkers, however, are a more fast-paced, driven crowd with a lone state of mind. This well-known and never-ending rivalry does not take away from both cities’ glory and prestige. If your heart belongs to LA, but you still want to have a taste of New York’s greatest, most popular cuisine – you are in luck! Alongside people’s favorite, NYC’s Shake Shack, which is no less popular here in LA, you can enjoy even more of New York-based restaurants. Check out these LA locations of some of the best New York’s eateries:

The Butcher’s Daughter, 1205 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, CA 90291

Originally located in West Village, The Butcher’s Daughter offers you a healthy choice of food and drinks. Going for that morning run? There you have wide range of cold-pressed juices, smoothies and other wellness drinks to energize.
