The festival’s schedule unfolds from 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with a matinee session from 12:30 pm to 3 pm on Sunday. Aligning with Frieze Week Los Angeles, which electrifies the city’s creative communities from February 26 to March 3, LAWFF promises to be a highlight for both food enthusiasts and all who love culture. 

Among the newly added participating restaurants are renowned establishments like Pizzana, Jitlada, Holbox, Donna’s, Bridgetown Roti, Chifa, Bé Ù, Love Hour, Crudo e Nudo, Isla, Camphor, Tavern on Main, Macheen, Holy Basil, Xuntos, Pasjoli, and Guerilla Tacos.

These esteemed additions join headliners such as Justin Pichetrungsi, Adam Perry Lang, Alvin Cailan, Duff Goldman, Claudette Zepeda, Andrew Zimmern, and Stephanie Izard.

Showcasing a commitment to diversity, LAWFF dedicates itself to highlighting female-owned restaurants in LA through its official non-profit partner, Regarding Her (RE: Her).
