The Morrison is a solid bar/restaurant in Atwater Village, and the kind of place you walk into once and leave as a regular. They’ve got an excellent craft beer list, good cocktails, a happy hour from 3pm - 7pm everyday, and a burger you’re definitely going to want to get involved with. Bonus - if you’re dining with your dog friend, they’ve got a great front patio and an entire “doggy menu” as well.

Hail Mary Pizza
Hail Mary is LA’s version of a NY slice shop or a Chicago deep dish tavern - an ideal neighborhood pizza spot built for this city.
All'acqua has solid, if slightly underwhelming cocktail and salad menus, but they set the course for some absolutely magical entrees. When taken as a whole, it makes for a more than solid meal.
Village Tavern’s not fine dining but if you pick your dish right, you can still have a good time. And even if you pick your food wrong, this place is just too damn likeable for you to get <i>too</i> upset.
