One of LA's premiere names in kosher dining (and catering), La Gondola has been a staple of the kosher community for more than two decades. They've been known to FedEx their signature BBQ beef ribs across the country and flown out to Dubai to cook for royalty. Located on the same Wilshire block as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences building, celebrities of all sorts have been known to dine in with photos hanging along the walls to prove it. And the roster of dishes is just as impressive. The signature BBQ beef ribs ($38)—the two-day process includes brining, marinating and slow-braising—are a must and as the menu says "speak for themselves." Those in the mood for chicken, can order the pollo marsala with wild mushroom sauce ($23), while chocolate lovers should save room for the chocolate molten cake, spiced with cinnamon and topped with raspberry and mango sauce, parve whipped cream and strawberries ($10).
