Nestled on Ventura Boulevard is Studio City's The Bellwether, a casual neighborhood spot from executive chef and co-owner Ted Hopson, along with beverage director and co-owner Ann-Marie Verdi. Whether you're stopping by for a solo drink while watching the game on one of the TVs above the bar, or sitting down with friends for a shared meal, you'll find plenty of gems to choose form on both the drink and dinner menU: tender charred octopus, a luxurious stewed chickpea dish, pork and beef meatballs, white negronis and more. A separate R&D section on the menu allows diners to try one of Hopson's work in progress.

The Bellwether aims to please and it is usually successful. Tried the restaurant for DineLA dinner and the selections give a lot of freedom and value to diners. The cooking is well executed and flavors are on point overall. The atmosphere feels like you're in New England - upscale casual and customers who seem like they are in a comfortable position in life. I would like to return to try their brunch one of these days.


No brainer. Best restaurants in the Valley. When food, drinks, hospitality and just good people blend in a perfect mix. Never change.


One of the best restaurants in the 818! Love this gastropub! Fresh ingredients and terrific servers. Our favorites: the tuna crudo, the tempura cauliflower, brussel sprouts, meatballs! French Fries!! The steak fries are works of art - soaked overnight in acidulated water, blanched, frozen, tossed with a bit of their own starch, fried & tossed with spicy salt - perfectly crisp on the outside & almost liquid within. Love the open kitchen & the bar selection awesome! Desserts outstanding! Definitely be back!!
