A guide to one of the largest neighborhoods in LA County
Despite the proliferation of attention-getting restaurants in West LA, Downtown, and Silver Lake, there is truly no shortage of great places to dine at the fringes of Los Angeles’ urban core. That includes more sprawling mega-neighborhoods like the Valley and, in this instance, greater South Los Angeles, a giant cultural cross-section loosely defined as that area below the 10 Freeway, inland from the South Bay, and ending north of Long Beach and west of the 710.
While that’s not a definitive outline, it does include many of the key neighborhoods and cities (including Inglewood, Compton, Lynwood, West Adams, Leimert Park) that are traditionally associated with South LA. And within those communities, it is entirely possible to dine very well from dozens of different cuisine types. You’ll find Southern American barbecue, true soul food, Caribbean restaurants, Spanish tapas, and at least one genre-defining fast food start-up backed by a couple of celebrity chefs. Here now, presented in alphabetical order, are the best places to drink and dine in greater South LA.
