LAS VEGAS: The former Sahara hotel and casino is now the SLS Las Vegas, which is making a run for all that trendy Cosmopolitan money. The property hopes to make LA locals comfortable with an outpost of 800 Degrees, which features a hip, nightclubby design. Other SLS restaurants include similar LA favorites like Cleo, Katsuya, and Griddle Cafe.
CULVER CITY: Speaking of pizza, WildCraft has ditched its casual pizzeria vibe and gone more formal following a renovation. The menu is now more focused on Northern Italian food and the dining room sports a more sophisticated vibe.
ALL OVER: We hear enough about Providence, Gjelina, and Animal, but what about the restaurants that don't get their due? Eater's list of the 20 most underrated restaurants includes worthy eateries like SaMo's Mercado, DTLA's Colori Kitchen, and Osteria Mamma near Larchmont.
