Your Guide to a Foodie Fourth of July

7
Yes, it’s that time again, when we celebrate all things American by grilling up burgers and dogs, knocking back a few domestic brews, and perhaps lighting off a few fireworks (legal ones, of course). If you prefer eating out to the backyard BBQ, however, we’ve compiled a list of L.A. restaurants seeking to make your Independence Day a memorable one.  

For A Presidential Picnic…

Brentwood’s Tavern, which recently played host to the POTUS during Obama’s recent L.A. trip, will be featuring a special July 4th take-away menu designed by chef Suzanne Goin. Slow-roasted salmon, St. Louis pork ribs, and buttermilk fried chicken will be on the menu as well as a selection of uncooked burger patties for the DIY grill master.

For A Patriotic Pool Party…

The W Hotel in Westwood will be hosting a poolside BBQ party with chef Dakota Weiss grilling up chicken sandwiches, smoked prawns, and of course, burgers. Just remember to wait 30 minutes after eating to go swimming.

For A Veggie-Friendly Fourth…

The macrobiotic friendly M Café is offering a special “4 for $4” menu for July 4th which includes some of its most popular items such as a The Big Macro Burger, Two Signature Salad Combo and the Madras Tempeh Wrap.

For Take Out and Fireworks…

For those en route to the Hollywood Bowl’s annual fireworks spectacular, a quick stop at Susan Feninger’s Street might be in order. A special menu of satay skewers, angus burger kits, and Berlinerwurst hot dogs will all be available to-go for those who chose to eat on the run.

For Burgers and Bands…

This Independence Day, Chaya Venice will pair live music from “The Gumbo Brothers” with an Americana-inspired menu from chef Shigefumi Tachibe which will include such hearty classics as a Kobe beef burger with truffle fries and an Angus rib-eye with creamed spinach.

For Colorful Cocktails…
The Napa Valley Grille will debut their newest cocktail, “The Firecracker,” a tribute to the childhood favorite red, white, and blue popsicle. The drink will go for $4 during their special July 4th happy hour, along with a duo of sliders served with a PBR for only $5.
