Cecconi’s is power lunch central in West Hollywood, and has the kind of scene that goes along with that. There are plenty of agents, wannabe agents, and people with plenty of money but highly vague occupations, but the place feels fun rather than uptight. Oddly enough, the food here isn't half bad. The spaghetti with lobster might be $38, but it’s solid, and the $9 burger they do between 3pm and 6pm is one of our favorites in the city. Now you know.

The Polo Lounge
The Polo Lounge seems like one of those classic Old Hollywood spots, but the food and the scene are awful. There are better places for star sightings.
Craig’s is one of the most celebrity-packed restaurants in LA - and also one of the most boring.
