50 Los Angeles Spots the Cast Has Dined – The Hollywood Reporter

19 Min Read


If you’ve ever been curious about the dining establishments visited by the agents of Netflix’s hit docusoap Selling Sunset, you’re in for a treat. The Hollywood Reporter has painstakingly made a list of all the show’s restaurants, starting back with season one, all the way up to the newest, season seven, dropped on Nov. 3. (A few places that are missing are the restaurants that didn’t make it through the pandemic and a few mystery locales that don’t give enough clues.)

We all know that Sunset has some of the hottest mansion porn in television and for the past few seasons, the show has also firmly established itself as a fashion voyeur’s obsession. But apart from the lavish real estate, intense outfits, and of course, the agents and the particular brand of drama each of them brings, there’s another thing that has a notable presence on the show — that would be, the restaurants. 

Insta-worthy and busy seem to be the prerequisites for most of the eateries that appear on Selling Sunset. Special occasion celebrations, significant-other intros, gossip fests and clear-the-air chit-chats, usually take place at a dining hotspot with tons of aesthetic appeal and customers milling in the background, many in or around West Hollywood, home to the headquarters of the Oppenheim Group. There are many aspects of the show that resonate with viewers, but Los Angeles’ gorgeous, buzzing restaurants are a key component to building the allure of the agents and the show.

“I really make a point with the showrunners and the producers to get my favorite [restaurants] on the show,” says Selling Sunset star and Oppenheim Group founder Jason Oppenheim. “It makes sense that, if we’d go there, let’s film there.” (He recently revealed to THR that the show has been renewed for season 8.)

So, for all the Selling Sunset stans and true foodies who’d like to live like an O-Group agent for a few hours when next they visit the L.A. area, here’s a comprehensive list of where your favorite television real estate agents dine on the show.

Season Seven

Episode one

Lavo: Coastal Italian restaurant from Tao Group. “We filmed a girls’ dinner at Lavo. It’s a fabulous L.A. restaurant where I love to go,” Emma Hernan tells THR. “We actually went there to celebrate Chrishell’s and Mary’s birthdays this year — off camera — so it is definitely a good place to visit if fans of the Selling Sunset want to run into us!” 9201 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood

I often go to the hotel for lunch or dinner, it is just a classic Los Angeles hotspot that’s always special to visit.” 9500 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills
