Brand new to The Westin Los Angeles Airport Hotel, Daily Grill serves fresh, seasonal American fare amidst an upscale, friendly atmosphere.  On our menu, you'll find steaks & chops, fresh seafood, salads, chicken potpie and homemade desserts, as well as our signature Martini menu. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 24-hour in-room dining are served daily.  Private dining and catering menus are also available for special events.  Call 310-665-0149 to make a reservation.

Starbucks Coffee Bar

Start your day with a cup of fresh Starbucks® coffee and a light snack.
Cuisine: Snacks

Carryout and Coffee Kiosks

We are arranging with the hotel to have a carrying and coffee kiosk, which will probably be in or near the exhibit hall in the main ballroom on the ground floor.

Dinner/Dining Out:

The Daily Grill in the hotel is a fine restaurant.  For alternative restaurants very close by, we recommend taking the inter-hotel shuttle if available or if necessary a short cab ride to these restaurants at area hotels:
  • Paparazzi and the Brasserie at the Sheraton Gateway Los Angeles Hotel, 6101 West Century Boulevard · Los Angeles, CA 90045. Phone: (310) 642-1111 for reservations or to check dining hours 
  • Champion Sports Bar in the Los Angeles Airport Marriott, 5855 W Century Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90045, (310) 337-5316
  • JW's Steakhouse at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott, 5855 W Century Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045, (310) 641-5700
Please DO NOT patronize the restaurants at the Los Angeles Airport Hilton until such time as it resolves its differences with the union representing its workers.  The Writers Guild of America-West supports the boycott of this hotel.  If we had found out about this union dispute in time, we never would have held the 2010 Screenwriting Expo there.

Restaurants A Seven-Minute Cab Ride Away: 

These fine restaurants on Rosecrans Avenue are about a seven-minute cab ride away:

  • Flemings Steakhouse and Wine Bar, 2301 Rosecrans Avenue, El Segundo, CA 90245, 310-643-6911,  website
  • McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant, 2101 Rosecrans Avenue #1280, El Segundo, CA 90245-4736 (310) 416-1123, website
  • Paul Martin's American Bistro, 2361 Rosecrans Ave., El Segundo, CA 90245, (310) 643-9300
  • P.F. Chang's China Bistro, 2041 Rosecrans Ave. Suite #120 #120, El Segundo, CA  90245 (310) 607-9062,

Culver City Restaurants A 13-Minute Cab Ride Away:

There are so many excellent moderate-to-haute cuisine restaurants in downtown Culver City  that it is difficult to make a recommendation.  Google "Culver City Restaurants," and you'll see a list that  includes Ford's Filling Station, Fraiche, Akasha, Rush Street, Tendergreens, Saint Amour, Mezza Mediteranean,  Ugo...the list goes on.  If you want to make the trip (and a return cab should be no problem), we recommend reservations, but you can always find a meal by taking a cab to the front of Tendergreens and just walking both sides of the street reading menus in the windows.
