Another gastropub has popped up down the street from Wurstkuche. When you want more than sausages and truffle-y fries, head to Eat. Drink. Americano for some cheese, small bites, or flatbreads with your drink.
The menu is divided into cured meats and cheeses, bites, and flatbreads. Since the place is new, the menu is still evolving. We focused on the "bites" portion and pretty much got the whole section, starting with the Duck and Pickles ($14)
Confit of duck, pickled vegetables, and baguettes. Simple and satisfying.
King Crab Canneloni and Cauliflower Foam ($15)
I was looking forward to trying their steak tartar with mustard ice cream that I read about, but they didn't have it the night I went. Oh, well, instead I found their Soft Shell Crab Sandwich ($13)!
Braised Angus Oxtail Burger ($15)
My second favorite, possibly. While oxtail burgers aren't really "new" in LA anymore, this is still one of the better renditions of it. A couple weeks ago they were running a happy hour special on this for $10, but do double check if they're still doing that.
Niman Pork Cheek, Mushrooms, Polenta ($13)
Mushrooms and Eggs with Bread ($12)
Black Cod Tempura and Romescu Sauce ($15)
Yellowtail Ceviche ($14)
