La Cienega in Beverly Hills, north of Wilshire Boulevard, is known as Restaurant Row because it features many upscale restaurants. From Wilshire in Beverly Hills traveling north the best known establishments include Benihana, The Stinking Rose, Darioush, the original Lawry’s the Prime Rib, Hakobe, Tokyo Table – Tokyo City Cuisine, Matsuhisa, Fogo de Chão, Gyu-Kaku, Woo Lae Oak, The Bazaar by José Andrés, and Morton’s.

La Cienega Boulevard is named after Rancho Las Cienegas Mexican land grant roughly in the region now called “West Los Angeles.” The Spanish phrase la ciénaga translates into English as “the swamp” and the area named “Las Ciénegas” was a continual marshland due to the course of the Los Angeles River through that area prior to a massive southerly shift in 1825 to roughly its present course. The difference in spelling between the Spanish word ciénaga and the name of the thoroughfare originated with the name of the rancho.
