MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Lauded as the beating heart of Chef Josef Centeno’s expanding LA empire, this lively room can feel dressed up or down depending on the occasion—a snack at the long bar, an intimate corner date or a group celebration at the communal tables. Oscillating between Spanish, Middle Eastern and Italian accents, this food is big on flavor, fun and ideal for sharing. The menu centers around "bäcos" and "cocas"-types of flatbread sandwiches packed with quirky, yet satisfying fillings like oxtail hash, cheddar and horseradish yogurt. Small plates are also big stars here, from a creamy eggplant-fava dip with za'atar and mint, to buttermilk-fried quail over smoky and tart pea leaves. A dreamy disc of pistachio-and-crème fraiche cheesecake makes for a worthy finale.
