Australian restaurateurs Nick Mathers, Lincoln Pilcher, and Nick Hatsatouris may be responsible for NYC's famed eateries Kingswood and Ruby's, but it's their newest Hollywood hot spot, Eveleigh, that is really making a splash on the West Coast. This farm-to-table concept restaurant feels more like a chic country retreat than a hipster foodie haven, but the dishes and the clientele are anything but humdrum. Nestled inside the salvaged-wood indoor/outdoor space, you'll not only get top notch food but the people watching is unparalleled—we highly recommend sitting on the back patio where the sweeping views of L.A. will take your breath away. On our last visit, we spotted the city's hottest curator and art collectors, up-and-coming designers, and our fave stylist all throwing back artisan drinks, truffle fries, and homemade ice cream sandwiches. Of course, for such a cool crowd you'll need to bring your outfit A-game so make sure you opt for some killer skinny jeans, some hot-trot ankle boots, a striped sweater that would make Alexa Chung green with envy and a show-stopping ring and make your reservation for the hottest table in town.
