Our 99 Essential Restaurants issue came out earlier this month. In celebration, we're highlighting some of the spots for their special attributes. Today: Vegetarian-friendly restaurants. 

It's one thing to look through our list of the 99 Essential Restaurants in Los Angeles and plan a night (or two ... or 99) on the town. It's another thing altogether to try to do this with a vegetarian diner in tow. 

While none of the restaurants on our list are veggie-only, there are a ton of them that are great for vegetarian eaters. With this in mind, we thought we'd highlight the spots that are particularly great for meat-free eating.

Our 99 Essential Restaurants issue came out last week. In celebration, we're highlighting some of the spots for their special attributes. Today: Seafood. 

Is it worth telling you again that Los Angeles is currently going a seafood renaissance? We've certainly said it before. What's also true is that there are a bunch of seafood spots that have been around for quite some time that still deserve our love and respect. 

When browsing through the 99 Essentials list this year, we found a special abundance of seafood spots, a mix of places both shiny and new, tried and true, and somewhere in between. Here are five essential L.A. restaurants to get your fish fix.

Our 99 Essential Restaurants issue came out last week. In celebration, we're highlighting some of the spots for their special attributes. Today: Cheap eats!!

In many cities, the best food is also the most expensive. That is certainly not the case in Los Angeles, where you're just as likely to find food nirvana on a street corner as you are in an upscale restaurant. For this year's 99 Essential Restaurants list, there are plenty of spots highlighted that aren't much of a financial commitment at all - in fact, you ought to be able to get in, get out, and get fed for under $10. Here are ten of those spots.

Our 99 Essential Restaurants issue came out this week. In celebration, we're highlighting some of the spots for their special attributes. Today: restaurants that are good for kids. 

Even with wars brewing, a nation divided by politics, droughts and polar vortexes, one of the most contentious battles on the Internet continues to be this: kids in restaurants. There is no topic you can bring up (with tipping as a close second) that will get people more agitated. 

We here at The Weekly commiserate with both sides of this deep divide, and we'd like to help. There are places in Los Angeles that almost anyone would admit are perfectly acceptable to bring children, as long as those children aren't total monsters. And some of those places are also good enough to make it onto the 99 Essentials list. So here are five essential L.A. restaurants where kids should be perfectly welcome. (Yes, we're assuming your kids might be into stuff like udon and mole — if they aren't yet, it's high time you introduced them.)
