Where the Chefs Eat is an ongoing series in which we ask a local chef to give us his or her favorite dining options. This week we talk to Karen and Quinn Hatfield, chef/owners of Hatfield's and Sycamore Kitchen.

Chefs Karen and Quinn Hatfield's list of favorites reads like a who's who of hip Los Angeles restaurants, with a few lesser known spots thrown in. Here, in no particular order, are 10 of the power couple's favorite places to eat around town.

  • #10. Pailin Thai

    "We have been eating here for years. The Gai Lan with fried pork belly is so good."

  • #9. Malibu Seafood

    "This is a really charming place right on the PCH. We get the fried fish and sit on picnic benches with our BYOB beers."

  • #8. WP24

    "Amazing view. It's hard to find such a festive restaurant in L.A. They had one of the best foie gras dishes in town, prior to the ban. Now we need to go back and find a new favorite."

  • #7. Tar & Roses

    "We have been spreading the word about this place, as it's a really stand-out restaurant. If you are on the Westside, it's a must. They have a fantastic braised lamb belly."

  • #6. Littlefork

    "Jason Travi is one of L.A.'s great chefs, and littlefork is a really charming neighborhood joint. We like to sit at the bar and eat brisket and clam fritters."

  • #5. Bar Ama

    "The puffy fried taco is awesome. That's really all you need to know."

  • #4. Son Of A Gun

    "This is our favorite lunch spot in town. Great food and a fun vibe."

  • #3. Drago Centro

    "If we want a more sophisticated night out, this is the spot. We send people here all the time and they always come back raving. The food, beverage program and service are all exceptional."

  • #2. The Hungry Cat (Hollywood)

    "Now an institution, The Hungry Cat remains so simple and satisfying. I can't imagine a better Sunday morning than starting at the Hollywood farmers market and ending up at The Hungry Cat for cocktails and brunch."

  • #1. Red Medicine

    "It's rare to find this level of accessibility and ease at a restaurant that is creating such boundary pushing artistic food. I guess that's why we have eaten here more than most restaurants around town."
