Rooftop restaurants are the rage right now, and it's about time. WeHo is the epicenter of dining under and among the stars, and Catch L.A. in the design district is ground zero for the best convergence of atmosphere and aliment. The design masterpiece under a retractable roof is officially an outdoor restaurant, offering views from the Hollywood Hills to downtown. The interior is warm and rustic, with tables, booths and alcoves perfect for stargazing and hiding out. Get yourself a cozy spot and settle in for seafood that's as spectacular as the view. Start with a One Too Many, strawberry-infused Absolut Elyx with Lillet Rose, coconut, avocado and lime, topped with an orchid garnish. Move on to the famed truffle sashimi made with tuna, hamachi, chili oil, ponzu, caviar and black truffle, served on its own, well-deserved little altar. The Japanese Miyazaki Wagyu beef is cooked tableside on Catch L.A.'s signature hot stone — a mouthwatering performance. It's served with yuzu soy, garlic oil, Maldon sea salt and sesame, and it melts in your mouth. And there are delightful vegan options, such as the hearts of palm "crab" cakes with jicama mango slaw, and non-fish options such as the mushroom spaghetti with wild mushrooms, snap peas, tomatoes and Parmesan, as well as the pillowy, crispy chicken bao buns. Good luck finding room for dessert, but if you do, I'd recommend the sticky coconut cake. —Michele Stueven
