LA Eats: Dining In 

We can now dine in at restaurants who are compliant with the rules of a safe reopening as we move into the next phase of Reopening California. Without further ado, there are many restaurants that are now open for dine-in customers! A true adventure (and a sigh of relief) for those of us who were getting tired of cooking/cleaning and ordering take out. 

We have rounded up a list of restaurants that are open for business, and have linked directly to where you can make a reservation via OpenTable. Happy eating!

Little Sister – Downtown LA 

Little Sister DTLA features East-meets-West inspired dishes served in a relaxed social environment that feels more residential than restaurant, as if you”re being invited into the Chef Tin’s home.

Dishes blend and balance the spices and flavors of Southeast Asia with French techniques and Dutch and British colonial influences. The menu is continually and progressively evolving, reflecting inspiration and the seasons. Scott Young along with Chef Tin curates the restaurant’s wine and beverage program with a focus on intriguing labels, both domestically and from around the world. Craft beer selection includes special batches from The Brewery at Abigaile, brewed only for the restaurant.
