Beautiful French place right down the street. Take a nice walk down to Sunset Junction and enjoy this magical spot for dinner and feel like you stepped into Paris, or have a drink at the uber hip bar off the front. Great for people watching or meeting.

There may be no more quintessentially Silver Lake restaurant at the moment than Mh Zh, where the vast majority of the seating is on a sloped sidewalk, throngs of the effortlessly trendy congregate at the front door, and the menu is handwritten daily on brown paper bags. Love it or hate it, the largely Israeli dishes are undeniably delicious and, shockingly, extremely affordable, with the entire menu running for just over one hundred bucks.

Burmese food has a special place in Silver Lake now, thanks to Daw Yee Myanmar Corner, a strip mall hit right next to Same Same off Sunset Boulevard.

Around the corner from Millie’s, things couldn’t be more different at Trois Familia. Pushing a menu of Mexican-French overlays, the food here is delicious and decadent and as colorful as you’ll find. It helps that Ludo himself stops in to make sure everyone’s cooking his eggs the right way.

George Abou-Daoud’s casual modern Middle Eastern restaurant doesn’t get the love it deserves.

El Cochinito is one of Silver Lake’s true success stories, having been in operation at their strip mall location since 1988. The restaurant has slowly been modernizing to fit the times, and even won a coveted national award for its Cubano sandwich, but mostly it’s still about family and lots of delicious porky flavor at this longstanding hit.

This neighborhood market—hosted Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings at Sunset Triangle Plaza—is the place to see and be seen while you peruse produce. The shoppers here have style, as evidenced by the many (rather pricey) vintage clothing racks and jewelry stands dominating a corner of the market. There are also used books and records for sale, fresh flowers, a lot of crystals, dried sage and other hip hippie wares. Of course, there’s a ton of good food, too.

This sprawling dive, formerly known as Spaceland, remains the area’s leading shrine to all things indie. The sound isn’t great and parking is a combat sport, but the venue hosts great lineups as well as an upstairs lounge with a less-crowded bar and a photo booth (that actually works, on good nights!). The Monday night program, which features free monthly residencies for buzzy local bands on their way up, is always worth a look.

The whiskey selection at this neighborhood mainstay is impressive: 100+ whiskeys and 60+ small-batch bourbons are on display behind a horseshoe-shaped bar. The only other view is brick walls through paned glass windows, while dim lights under sconces round out the room to give the bar a dramatic glow. At $12 a pop, cocktails here don’t run dive-bar cheap, but the happy hour (Mon-Sat 5-8pm; Sun 2-8pm) is one of the best in town, with a curated list of cocktails (Moscow mules, Manhattans, the oft-elusive dark and stormy) only $5 each.

It’s all about the back patio at this Silver Lake institution, a fixture since 1959. Current owner Aidas Mattis and his family still maintain the Bavarian connection with a beer stein-shaped sign out front; imagery of the Berlin bear; a mural of old-school, beer-toasting Germans, and wall-mounted promotional tins from classic German breweries like Warsteiner and Bitburger. Schnitzel and sausage are series regulars at Red Lion, as are German pilsners, hefeweizens and lagers. Also regulars? Large groups of friends who come to down pitchers (and boots) of the good stuff for hours on end.

Look, we know the big draw here is the fantastic Filipino food from Charles Olalia, but the cocktails are just as fun and colorful. Throw in a setting that feels like the tropics, complete with hanging plants and thatched walls, and you’ve got a recipe for transportive drinking. We always find ourselves coming back to the Manila by Night, made with Plantation pineapple rum, lemon, house-made coconut-banana shrub, orgeat and Xocolatl bitters, but it’s hard to go wrong with anything on the menu. Old World wines with local and Southeast Asian beers only add to the eclectic, something-for-everyone drink list.

Today, this glass-walled paragon of modern design overlooking the Silver Lake Reservoir is an active part of L.A.’s design community and home to occasional art installations.

This curious exhibit is often touted as a shrine to the man who inspired the Indiana Jones films. While stepping through this kitschy museum isn’t quite as swashbuckling as that association implies, it is a fascinating trip through Biblical ephemera from 20th-century explorer A.F. Futterer’s search for the Ark of the Covenant. Two-hour tours are offered daily by appointment only.
