For my sister’s birthday we decided on one of the “hottest” restaurants in LA right meow. Been wanting to try this place and found an excuse to go. This is not a review but I can tell you everything was delicious, from the seafood to the noodles and of course the bright and airy environment was beautiful yet simple. The seating is interesting as they have an outside patio, and indoor dining room, higher tables near the bar, the bar seating…basically any where you sit is a different angle, slightly different vibe. We had an earlier reservation so the restaurant was nice and empty. They had a decent tap list. We had a couple of my favorites: 21st Amendment’s Hell or High Watermelon and Modern Times Fruitlands Guava Gose.
