Where to Eat in Highland Park This Month

This is our list of restaurants you should check out for September. Can you try them all?

Finding a new spot to eat is hard. That’s why we take care of all the research, so you don’t have to!

Here are our picks for places you should try out this month:


Spanish cuisine is noticeably missing from the LA food scene. Otoño, however, has staked its claim as a premier locale for tasty tapas and an overall unique dining experience.

Known as a progressive-Spanish establishment, the menu at Otoño gently fuses cultures and cuisines seamlessly into the Spanish cooking tradition. Mexican, Italian, and even Japanese influences can be noticed in some dishes.

We recommend trying the Jamon Iberico, Pan con Tomate, and the Paella specials on Sundays.

Otoño is located at 5715 N Figueroa St. Dinner service on Tues, Wed, Thurs and Sun from 5:30 pm – 10 pm. Fri and Sat 5:30 pm – 11 pm.

Triple Beam Pizza

PIzza is simple. It’s just a few ingredients layered together and baked over a fresh mound of dough. At Triple Beam Pizza they take simplicity to heart.

You walk right up to the counter, hold up your hands to show how big you want your piece, they warm it up, then you grab a seat and enjoy.

We think you should give the Sausage and Margherita pizza’s a try. But we wouldn’t blame you if you try a bit of each!

Triple Beam Pizza can be found in Highland Park at 5918 Figueroa St and in Echo Park at 1818 Sunset Blvd.

Naughty Boy Sushi

Pop-up eateries are all the rage in Highland Park. Inevitably, there will be vendors who provide unique offerings for the masses to try.

Enter Naughty Boy Sushi, a vegan sushi pop-up in front of Johnny’s Bar every Tuesday and Friday.

They serve up specialty baked rolls, citrus baked tofu rolls, and spicy jackfruit avocado rolls. We definitely recommend trying them all!

Find Naughty Boy Sushi outside of Johnny’s Bar at 5006 York Blvd. They’re open all evening on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Mid East Tacos

Sometimes fusion food just makes sense. That’s exactly the case with this one-of-a-kind pop-up taco spot.

Mid East Tacos provides hungry customers with the kind of unique fusion you only see in cities as diverse as Los Angeles. Bringing in Armenian spices and cooking techniques with Mexican influences creates a new, yet somewhat familiar flavor profile.

The must-try items off the menu are the steak kabob burrito, and chicken kabob tacos.

Mid East Tacos can be found at 5300 York Blvd. They’re open Thursday through Sunday from 7 pm to Midnight.
