MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

In that eternal quest for that great neighborhood restaurant, Kismet fits the bill. Of course, that only works when your 'hood is Los Feliz and said restaurant sports a mélange of Middle Eastern influences. This kitchen offers all-day dining, but with the shakshuka, or poached eggs in tomato stew, this isn’t your pancake and French toast crowd.

Dishes hail from Israel, Turkey, Iran and elsewhere and create harmonies that make the United Nations green with envy. From barbari bread to chicken and pine nut pies wrapped in flaky phyllo, you’ll be scraping your plate for crumbs. Freekeh fritters with “pickley green” sauce are like a carnival treat with an elevated international twist. Come hungry and armed with a crowd, since this food is best shared.
