Three Eastside restaurants made Eater LA’s list of “The 17 Hottest Restaurants in LA Right Now, 2017.” Good Measure in Silver Lake is good for the wine geeks and small bites. Mh Zh, also in Silver Lake, was included for its “flavor-forward” Middle Eastern dishes that don’t break the bank. Another Silver Lake restaurant, Freedman’s, was noted for bringing a bit of “new school” to Los Angeles’ accomplished Jewish deli scene. Good Measure is located in the 3200 block of Glendale Boulevard in Atwater Village. Mh Zh is located in the 3500 block of Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake. Freedman’s is located in the 2600 block of Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake.

Cosa Buena’s mozzarella sticks made Jonathan Gold’s top ten dish list of 2017, the Los Angeles Times reports. He says that chef Zach Pollack’s finger lickin’ creations are “stout, juicy and encased in a shaggy, ultra-crisp coat.” Cosa Buena is located in the 2100 block of W. Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

  1. Cosa Buona, not Cosa Buena. That’s an Italian restaurant.
