Megan Driscoll had been running a custom desserts catering company since 2006 until she found the perfect little storefront for her bakery, Eat Sweets Pastry on Gayley Avenue in Westwood Village, just a stone's throw from In-N-Out. The bakery quietly opened on June 2, replacing La Galetta. Students and faculty from UCLA are already knee-deep in lavender-honey baklava, brown-butter brownies, vanilla shortbread blueberry jam bars, cupcakes, chocolate-dipped marshmallow lollipops and more.

"I want people to feel special coming in, like they're really treating themselves. I love what I do and hope it makes my customers equally happy," says Driscoll, who has worked as a chef at Joe's Restaurant. The current menu is based on customer requests. Think dark chocolate truffles, gooey homemade chocolate chip cookies, tarts and other assortments. The signature shortbread cookie with almond frosting is a must.

    We've got so many restaurants, you could eat at a different joint every day of the year -- and probably the rest of your life -- and never go to the same place twice. It would be impossible (both physically and financially) to try them all, but luckily, you have us. Check out The Year in L.A. Food (So Far).

    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
