20 Los Angeles Restaurant Picks

Stay-cationing over Labor day weekend on the west coast? Nothing wrong with that! We thought we’d round up some great restaurants from “local” – actress Busy Philipps – that you must try this weekend if you haven’t been yet.

She may have played a cougar on television, but in real life Philipps is an uber chic, glowing Mom whose family is as adorable as they come. We hung out with Philipps at one of her favorite spots – LA’s Petty Cash Taqueria – for some shuffleboard and guacamole, and even had a chance to meet her beautiful daughter Cricket. Most importantly though (because we’re only thinking with our stomachs), we plugged her for food haunts.

A cheeseburger and fries at Chateau Marmont, a hot fudge sundae at Little Dom’s, a sweet latte at Sqirl…the list goes on. So peruse it above, because if you can’t eat your way through a stay-cation, what can you do?
