Voting Home / The Lazy Dog Cafe
Nominated for: BEST American Bistro
The extensive lunch and dinner menus feature items inspired by cultures from around the world. Guests will never be bored with the varied menu that includes influences from Italy, South America, China, France, and most importantly, classic Americana. Among the standout menu items are the unforgettable Wok-fired Calamari, the award-winning Trio of Hummus Dips, and a succulent serving of the classic Braised Lamb Shank. Demonstrating that they're serious about food, but don't take themselves too seriously, the team behind the Lazy Dog Café have included build-your-own pizzas for kids, a delicious chili-cheese dog, and even a spectacular dessert served in a dog bowl. A departure from other restaurants, each Lazy Dog Café boasts a complete bar that offers the full lunch and dinner menus in a dynamic, upbeat and energetic environment complete with high-definition plasma televisions for watching sporting events. Combine that with a vast selection of beers, including 16 draft selections, a full wine list and a wide range of specialty drinks, and it is no surprise that the Lazy Dog Café has become one of Southern California's favorite hang-outs.
