Jeremy Fox is one of those chefs whom other chefs gush about, and Rustic Canyon is the restaurant where you'll find many of those other chefs when there's cause for celebration or need for inspiration. Since Fox teamed with Rustic Canyon's owners Zoe Nathan and Josh Loeb in 2013, the restaurant has just gotten better and better, and Fox's ideas seem to be more distilled than ever. There are longtime favorite dishes, such as the bright shellfish pozole verde, which is both soothing and exciting. But with each new visit you're bound to find something that spends only a few days on the menu and is as delightful as it is fleeting. A recent porchetta with kumquats and bitter greens had us clutching our pearls in delight. If you don't believe us, check out Fox's gorgeous Instagram account for visual proof. —Besha Rodell
