5 perfect patios in Los Angeles

1) Guisados

With locations across LA, this popular restaurant specializes in Mexican stews – guisados – meats or veggies braised with chilis and spices served on handmade corn tortillas. While the original mothership in Boyle Heights is a proper pilgrimage site (it supplies the masa for all other locations), the patio of this location, nestled into the surrounding hill, never fails to bring bliss.
