|This corner neighborhood restaurant comes from a former L.A. sommelier, and it's reflected in its eclectic wine list. The food on the menu is designed to pair with the wines - which is a good concept, but also lends to food that doesn't quite live up to the wines. There are old wooden floors, old fashioned wallpaper on the walls, and rough wooden tables and chairs. They replaced their two-group Nuova Simonelli at the end of the open kitchen with a single-group La Marzocco Linea in 2014. With it, they pull large (formerly modest) shots of Ritual coffee that partially fill their large, Front of the House coffee cups. It has a rather even but thin medium brown crema with a flavor of some pepper and spice that manages to be a little concentrated despite the large volume. A once-good restaurant espresso that notched down a little due to size. It comes at a price that's less modest than their wine selections.
