Adorable kids? (Three cherubic offspring.) Delish restaurants? (Six, plus a string of ice creameries.) A flair for sweets? We’re in—Zoe Nathan’s Insta account is everything we could ever want and more.

Suzanne Goin

The mastermind behind the dishes at a.o.c., Lucques and Tavern is so major, she made Spanish fried chicken with buttermilk biscuits for Jimmy Kimmel’s Oscar after-party.

Jessica Koslow

Sqirl chef Jessica Koslow’s ’Gram is all about hyper-local produce and fermentation. That’s why hipsters line up for her signature dish of sweet potatoes, lentils, oil-cured olives and pickled onions.

Valerie Gordon

Gordon’s First Street confections boutique has just been remodeled to include a café, and her beloved tea cakes, pictured here, are back on the menu. (You know, just in case you needed an excuse to stop by.)

Jessica Largey

Want to watch the city’s most anticipated fine dining spot open? Follow award-winning young chef Jessica Largey as she debuts Simone in the Arts District.

Sarah Hymanson

Nyesha Arrington

At her restaurant Native, Cali-born chef and Top Chef alum Nyesha Arrington has a way with everything from Santa Monica farmers’ market produce to Santa Barbara prawns.

Nancy Silverton

Karen Hatfield

This decadent buttermilk pie and more mouth-watering desserts are waiting for you in the Insta feed for The Sycamore Kitchen.

Marge Manzke

For the uninitiated, Manzke is the creator of the bread program and desserts at Republique. (They're beyond, so save room.)
