LA Weekly's Description

Here at 8 Oz., a side project of Govind Armstrong's that we may like better than we ever liked his Table 8, you can pick up a mug of microbrew, a perfect rye Manhattan and a plate of chicken-confit buffalo drummettes, little corn dogs made with Kobe-style cocktail franks and served with violet mustard, fried potato skins sprinkled with truffle oil, or a grilled cheese sandwich stuffed with braised short ribs - the kinds of things chefs like to make for themselves from the contents of the walk-in but which rarely make it onto restaurant menus. There is a tasting platter of sliders made with ground boar, ground lamb and something called ground triple-prime beef, all paired with small, matching pours of beer. And the burgers are really good, of the drippy, bloody school, especially a burger made with roasted mushrooms and grass-fed beef, which ranges just on the near side of gaminess. Is it a drag to pay a buck extra for catsup, no matter how organic and artisanal it may be? Kind of.

The burger was cooked to perfection on this really... More >>

    happy to say this place hits the mark. i have the feeling anything you order will be tasty. large beer selection (and they do food pairing), full bar. parking shouldn't be a problem, but there is valet. there is a patio, high top tables and booths. very cool spot (old table 8 space, same owner). truffled potatoes skins a must. tons of sauces that are house made, from heirloom...
