Arts District2121 East 7th Place, Los Angeles, CA 90021

The perpetually packed Bestia arguably led the charge for a neighborhood restaurant revival when it opened in the Arts District in 2012. Over a decade later, Ori Menashe and Genevieve Gergis’s original hit still delivers delicious Italian by way of California cooking, including some of the city’s best pizza and pasta, in an understated, industrial chic dining room. The bustling, open space warmed by the glow of edison bulbs is arguably part of the draw, but groups can still enjoy a taste of the convivial atmosphere in semi-seclusion from the patio, which comfortably seats up to 25 guests.
