New dinner restaurants in Hollywood

Looking for new dinner restaurants in Hollywood? There are always new places to eat in the area around the Hollywood Hotel, so you’ll never go hungry.

Dave’s Hot Chicken

One exciting new place to have dinner is Dave’s Hot Chicken, the new permanent location of the parking lot pop-up. Dave’s gained a strong following for its Nashville-style hot chicken, French fries and kale coleslaw (very LA!). The new dinner restaurant is casual and is located in a strip mall at Western Avenue just below Santa Monica Boulevard, where Asava Thai used to be.

Hearth & Hound

Another new dinner restaurant in Hollywood is Hearth & Hound from lauded New York City chef April Bloomfield, who is also in the kitchens at The Breslin and The Spotted Pig in New York. Opened last month, Hearth & Hound is located in the old Cat & Fiddle space on Sunset Boulevard. The space has been completely transformed to be brighter and cozier, with a fireplace and U-shaped bar, as well as heating lamps and even blankets for diners on the famous patio. The tiled fountain has been restored, too. The menu is described as “wood-fired and produce-driven,” with meat and seafood featured as well. Fun fact: Mike D of hip hop group the Beastie Boys helped develop the wine list here.

Paloma Hollywood

Paloma Hollywood is a new late-night option from the mind of famed Hollywood restauranteur Adolfo Suaya, who also opened Osaka and The Phoenix, and Darren Crane of Crane’s Bar in downtown Los Angeles. Paloma calls itself a “tequileria” and has a cocktail list full of tequila and its smoky cousin mezcal. The food menu features elevated tacos, burritos and quesadillas.
