Occupying what until recently housed Hatfield's, Eva is the creation of Mark Gold (no relation), a veteran of Joachim Splichal's armies of the night, who dreams of a new kind of neighborhood restaurant. Eva is an intimate bistro friendly to kids and regulars, neither too loud nor too brightly lit, with a gently priced wine list, and a market-driven seasonal menu of Cal-Med cooking at popular prices, nudged but not driven by advanced techniques: black cod with seawater glaze; burrata-stuffed ravioli; foie gras with summer melon. If the idea of linguine with clams reinterpreted as stretchy Japanese soba noodles tossed with sliced garlic, littlenecks and a generous handful of chunky bacon sounds good - and it should - you're probably in the right place. Sunday nights see not just family-style dinners but epic family dinners: braised brisket with frizzled broccoli rabe; sweet-corn risotto; and perhaps a spoonful of frisée salad in a lightened Green Goddess dressing, all for $39 ($20 for kids), including wine and a dessert or two. Last Sunday after dinner, Gold brought ripe musk melon to the table, whacked it apart with a big knife and scooped seeds onto the pristine tablecloth. Antonin Artaud might have approved; my 6-year-old certainly did.
Eva is the sort of restaurant you never want to leave, not only in the sense that you want to linger over the plates of Wagyu beef and charred leeks, the bowls of fennel soup with raw spot prawns and toasted buckwheat, the perfectly ripe melon... More »

I went with a large group of friends to Eva's Sunday Dinner and it was sumptuous. We had a great time savoring our entire experience at Eva. We had two main courses, veggies, salad, dessert and endless wine. Sundays are family style service at Eva's, but make no mistake about it, Chef Mark cooks up nothing but interesting gourmet fare. Chef Mark gave us the VIP treatment when he visited our table, making sure everything was top notch. I highly recommend this quaint little restaurant run by a husband wife team.
Back when 7458 Beverly Blvd. housed the previous incarnation of Hatfield's, it was one of the prettiest restaurants in Los Angeles. But since Mark Gold took over the space to open Eva Restaurant in September 2009, it has become hands-down the most gorgeous place to eat in this town -- so much so that it's a better value than a trip to nearby LACMA, if only because you get some pretty stunning food along with the scenery.
