Bar Avalon Brings Cozy Wine Bar and Dinner Spot to Echo Park

Echo Park got a new wine bar back in October with Bar Avalon, which came by way of Revelator Coffee. This intimate spot offers interesting wines and a small but solid dinner menu.

The wines here are listed by order of latitude and the list offers both old world and new world wines. The sommelier is always on hand to tell you about their more interesting offerings like Unti Segromigno from Dry Creek Valley.

The menu is divided into four sections including small plates, little bites like deviled eggs, and bigger entrees. We tried the Plancha Blue prawns, n'duja, preserved lemons ($14). Can never go wrong with blue prawns!

Pork Rillette ($14) from the "tasty bits" section

Slow cooked squash, basil ($12)

I randomly ordered this because I wanted some veggies, but this was actually excellent. It's a very savory and comforting dish.

Lamb braise, tomato, ras al hanout, cucumber ($29)
Bar Avalon
We really enjoyed the flavors of the lamb braise, but thought the meat could've been a little more tender.

Besides the squash, my favorite of the night ended up being the Pork chop, served with pickled green tomato relish ($28)
Bar Avalon
The pork chop was perfectly cooked. It was tender and juicy and the relish was a great complement. I would definitely order this again.

Their signature dessert seems to be the Carrot halwa ($10)

Carrot halwa is an Indian dessert and is basically a slow-cooked carrot pudding.

There is also a market tart on the dessert menu and the time I went it was a Lemon tart ($8)

Bar Avalon is a great neighborhood wine bar to have. It's a small and intimate place with an interesting wine selection and a good food menu. Echo Park is lucky to have them!
