Cravings Menu - Updated 6/15/2012
Menu and pricing subject to change

Long before there were stylish patio seating and people watching on Sunset Plaza, Cravings restaurant has been setting up the stage for outdoor sitting. The hard work of this family-owned business has stood the test of time for two and a half decades and has remained unmoved. The secret is simple: make every customer feel at home. Always unique, Cravings prides itself on originality; from serving wholesome Italo-Mediterranean dishes made only from the freshest ingredients, to its lush restaurant décor, to warm and friendly service with no pretense.

While Cravings constantly redefines itself with changing times, the quality of the food has remained the same. Recently, a management change initiated a renovation of both the patio and indoor sitting rooms. The result, a sophisticated blend of city chic and relaxing Mediterranean coastal attitude. The outside patio has opened up even more with the elevated skylight shaded with drapes of neutral color. Lavish sidewalk sitting, linen covered tables, and imported century-old Turkish pottery with Geraniums embellish the patio. Perfect for private parties and gatherings are the 2-in-1 VIP dining rooms which boost dazzling crystal chandeliers, chiffon curtains, low back sofas, and comfortable chairs. In addition, the seasonal special has taken a bold turn away from the main theme of the menu. On any given day, the chef can venture into a regional dish from anywhere in Europe.

Cravings invites you to enjoy a fantastic culinary experience and unequalled view of Sunset Plaza and the city of West Hollywood.
