A Little New York in Los Angeles

By Megan Mostyn-Brown for Chase Sapphire Preferred®

You may be an Angeleno by address, but you're a New Yorker at heart. And while living somewhere with constant sunshine and palm trees has its perks, sometimes you miss the little things that make the Big Apple, well, the Big Apple. No Metrocard or winter coat needed.

  1. Broome Street General Store

    Step inside this tiny Silverlake store/cafe and you'll swear you're in Cobble Hill. Yes, they have great coffee and a beautiful outdoor seating area, but it's their collection of sundries (hello, McClure's pickles) that'll make any former Brooklynite swoon. 2912 Rowena Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90039.

  2. Storefront Deli

    This no-fuss, pint-sized eatery was launched so East Siders would have a neighborhood spot to snag a great sandwich--just like the delis back in New York. The menu is stocked with upscale versions of bodega staples (egg and cheese and BLT), but also offers up slightly healthier fare (tuna salad, market salad). 4624 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90027.

  3. Sam's Bagels

    Throw a dime in New York and you can hit a great bagel joint. In Los Angeles the task of finding that perfect blend of crunchy and chewy is a little bit harder. Sam's Bagels fills the bill when you're craving an everything with a schmear. 150 N. Larchmont Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90004.

  4. IAMA Theatre Company

    This scrappy theater company started by NYU grads provides cutting-edge productions of first-rate new plays done by actors with major theater chops, proving what most die-hard theater goers already knew: often the bigger venues (ahem, Broadway) aren't where the most exciting work is being done. 6201 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90038.

  5. Rick's Tavern

    Don't let this saloon's proximity to the beach fool you, Rick's is Yankees territory. So grab a beer, indulge in a burger and root, root, root for your (former) home team. 2907 Main St., Santa Monica, CA 90405.

  6. Don't Tell Mama

    Musical theater obsessed? Rejoice! The legendary Midtown restaurant/cabaret has finally opened a West Hollywood outpost. Angelenos can catch Broadway-caliber singers, pianists and future cabaret stars all under one roof. 8279 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90046.

  7. Little Dom's

    This low-key, cozy Italian restaurant has a straight up Lower East Side vibe. That's probably why it's a hub for former New Yorkers to congregate and a place where celebs can nosh and imbibe unnoticed from the paps. 2128 Hillhurst Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90027.

  8. Grand Central Market

    A melting pot in the middle of downtown where (like a New Yorker) you can buy fresh produce, scour the 99 Cent Store and grab a kebab all without leaving the block. 317 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013.
