Subhead: 
Nestled between Silver Lake and DTLA, Echo Park has become a destination in its own right. Here, five stellar new spots.
Gingerly Witty prides itself in carrying American-made fashion
Body 1: 

BEACON | ECHO PARK Located alongside Echo Park Lake, chef Emmanuel Garcia’s Asian-influenced menu items include poke bowls, crab toast and a mouthwatering wagyu burger. 213.318.5193

Body 2: 

COSA BUONA Alimento chef Zach Pollack’s new hot spot shows off classic red-sauce Italian fare with a twist. Look out for updated versions of mozzarella sticks, eggplant Parmesan and wood-fired pizzas.

Body 3: 

YOU'RE SO BABY Tatum Kendrick turns a sophisticated, feminine lens on the concept of an inviting home, offering a unique mix of antique and new furniture, striking jewelry, delicate lingerie and standout ready-to-wear pieces. 

Body 4: 

HONEY HI Although this nutritionist-run breakfast and lunch spot may touch on all of the expected notes—bowls and tartines are gluten-, GMO- and refined sugar-free—the menu is elevated by an intriguing blend of flavors, coaxed from sustainably sourced meats and locally grown produce. 213.221.7810

Body 5: 

GINGERLY WITTY While sustainable and local are usually associated with food, those terms can also apply to fashion. Gingerly Witty is committed to consciously sourced clothing and accessories, featuring small-label American- and L.A.-designed and -made pieces like Jamie + The Jones dresses, Fable & Lore jewelry and Capri Blue candles.
