Renzell Takes Hollywood

Hollywood has long been the home for movies and TV, yet most rely on sets and sound stages. Few tourists realize that many of the restaurants they dine at after they tour the studios are home to some of their favorite scenes. Check out the list of Renzell restaurants that have been featured on the screen. 

1. Little Dom’s — We Bought a Zoo


Benjamin (Matt Damon) avoids this 'cafe' as it became a constant reminder of his late wife; but *SPOILER* he is finally able to go at the end of the film with his kids.  

2. The Bazaar by José Andrés  Entourage


Toward the end of the series, Vince (Adrian Grenier) meets Vanity Fair writer Sophia (Alice Eve) at this restaurant. 

3. Nobu  Ferris Bueller’s Day Off


Although originally filmed at the L'Orangerie, the space now houses the infamous sushi house Nobu. And—lucky for us—the layout remains relatively similar to the scene shot in Ferris Bueller. 

4. WP24  Real Housewives of Beverly Hills


Brandi and Paul get into an epic screaming match in classic Real Housewives fashion—all while dining at the famous restaurant from Wolfgang Puck. 

5. n/naka  Chef’s Table


Chef Niki Nakayama has come to be seen as one of the only female masters of kaiseki in the world. Her episode on the Netflix documentary follows her story and the hard work that goes into her LA restaurant n/naka.
