Taking your pup with you to dine is a great incentive for many Angelenos who don’t go anywhere without their best friends. Others like to give their furry companions the chance to accompany their humans when a repast means getting out of the house to a place where the serving is done by a staff member. That said, following are five places in which dog and family are welcome to book a meal in this part of the sunny Southland otherwise known as The City of Angels.
