If you've ever had a spectacular night at Hatfield's, but wish you could grub there every day sans the splurge (we have!), this bright La Brea haven will make your dining dreams come true! The owners behind the exquisite institution are delivering a more casual concept to their new cuisine, and your taste buds would never know the difference. We recommend the Double BTLA (bacon, pork belly, tomato, and avocado) topped off with a dense flourless chocolate brownie. (Of course, there's plenty of healthier options for those of you not looking to totally ditch the diet!). The airy courtyard is conducive to jovial mid-day chats and breezy summer wares like this dainty Funktional frock.
The Sycamore Kitchen, 143 South La Brea Avenue (between West 1st and West 2nd streets); 323-939-0151.
