Sunny Spot is a place that is stretching to find a flavor that doesn't exist yet.

We are a restaurant just blocks from the sands of the Pacific finding ourselves on a road through the Caribbean islands.

You can't really say that we are one thing or that we are authentically one island.

But what you can find out is that we are filled with fruits and spices, music and love. 

I call it a cookshop. A place where we can experiment with tropical ingredients like papaya, plantain, mango, ackee, spiny lobster, passionfruit, yellow rice, oxtail, and vinegars in the city of Los Angeles. 

A place where imagination takes precedent over authenticity.
Chopped and mixed. Not exactly the West Indies, but the West Coast Indies, all with a deep bow to the cultures from which these foods came.....

Colorful, funky, modern Caribbean joint from Roy Choi, crafting inventive cocktails & jerk wings.- Google
"Instead we got the banana french toast which were great!"
"Could get a little spendy if you arrive after happy hour but not too crazy."

I'm not a huge fan of other Roy Choi's establishments to begin with so I'm not surprised that I didn't find Sunny Spot to be spectacular either. I would recommend this place for drinks but not the food. You pretty much seat yourself here. You get a choice of either the bar area tables or the patio outside. The ambiance is actually really nice inside. It would be the perfect place for date except for the fact that it's extremely loud inside. I enjoyed their cocktails. I had the rum punch and it was tasty but not too sweet. They also have a little bit of a wine selection. I tried a glass of the malbec and it was disappointing. The food was the most confusing. We had the mofongo and heirloom tomato salad for appetizers. The heirloom tomato salad was quite good. It has a spicy kick and the goat cheese was delicious. The mofongo, however, was almost soupy. I didn't enjoy the texture or the flavor. My cuban torta was also disappointing. It was definitely not one of the best cuban sandwich I've ever had. It's served with a flavorless sour slaw and yucca fries. The yucca came with this dipping sauce that I quite liked. Unfortunately the dipping sauce was the best part of the dish. The service was pretty good. Our waitress was extremely friendly. They have valet parking for $3.

Great bottomless bloodies. Savory, spicy, and just perfectly balanced flavor. Vegetarian omelet and the plantains were also very good. Sunny outdoor seating, as the name implies.

Fun, lively ambience for catching up with friends. This is a great spot for happy hour - which goes ALL night Mon thru Thurs - or for brunch with bottomless mimosas and eggs and fried plantains. The menu can be hit or miss, but stick with the fries, jerk chicken, shrimp and anything with plantains and you'll be happy. Taking a tune from its Caribbean roots, service is slowwwwwww.

Great ambiance and friendly wait staff. Loved the vibe on the patio. If I liked rum more this would be my go to local.

Drinks are bottomless and strong - not watered down. The food is phenomenal and unique. It was busy but the entire staff was still attentive, friendly and informative. Definitely a great place to go!!

A friend and I met up here on a warm Sunday evening and was able to enjoy their happy hour and patio, which is probably the best way to experience this place. I love the decor here--kitschy-cute as most other reviews have mentioned, but not obnoxiously so. We ended up sharing a bunch of different plates (salmon ceviche, spicy chicken wings, tostones) over some $5 Stella drafts and it was a really lovely time. We enjoyed all the dishes we got and the service was great. Could get a little spendy if you arrive after happy hour but not too crazy. Also, I did valet parking for expendiency's sake but there does appear to be some street parking to be had. Would love to come back sometime this summer.

Great spot for brunch. Tiki cocktails are paired with reggae and hip hop. Funky vibe and seating. A great burger, with yuca fries that kill it. Jamaican inspired menu with some traditional west coast classics. Did I mention brunch was great?

This a great place for dinner, but even better for BRUNCH! Mimosas or bloody mary's make sundays amazing!
