American and Mediterranean food made with a twist.

By Paulo Murillo

Every so often a neighborhood restaurant comes along that friends of friends rave about to all their other friends, and right now friends are raving about Continental Kitchen WeHo (under new management), located at 8205 Santa Monica Blvd., on the corner of Havenhurst Drive and Santa Monica Blvd.—walking distance from West Hollywood City Hall.

Continental Kitchen is American and Mediterranean food made with a twist. Simply put, the food they serve is fresh and delicious—period. Don’t believe it? Look them up on, where happy customers consistently give them 5-star reviews for their regular use of fresh ingredients, grass fed meats, free range poultry, sustainable seafood, and organic produce that they purchase from local farmers markets. The portions are more than generous and the friendly service is superb.



Be sure to check out their amazing hummus (homemade from scratch daily), their burger patties (made by hand) and their “ribbon fries.” Even their ketchup has a surprising kick to it. Also, their salads, homemade soups and sandwiches are absolutely amazing. On top of all that, they offer natural smoothies, organic coffee and a vast selection of desserts to sweeten the palate.
