LA Weekly's Description

Chefly barbecue, of course, is supposed to be an oxymoron. Decent barbecue is the stuff of distant roadsides, lonely highways and the wrong side of town. Until recently, creative American chefs spent their time reinterpreting stuff like burgoo, tamales and macaroni and cheese, but left the barbecue, which tends to leave dining rooms rather fragrant, to the other guys. But Leonard Schwartz, who practically invented the idea of high-end American comfort food, left his well-regarded kitchen at Maple Drive to open Zeke's, a barbecue chain. Carolina-style pulled pork is showing up in upscale kitchens almost as often as goat cheese. And Aaron Robins, whose résumé includes a long stint with über-chef Charlie Trotter in Chicago, opened Boneyard Bistro, a full-fledged, beef-intensive barbecue restaurant with a strong side competency in things like pistachio-crusted baked Brie, whiskey-brined pork chops and pumpkin seed-crusted salmon. Does the barbecued brisket match up well with Woody's? It's not even close. But sometimes it is pleasant to eat spareribs and drink Chateauneuf du Pape.

    Quite possibly the best beer selection in town. A little pricey for certain brews though.

  • Shauna T. on 06/08/12

    California burger is kind of amazing...

    You must have the brisket. It's outrageous!

    A full-fledged, beef-intensive barbecue restaurant with gourmet dishes like pistachio-crusted baked Brie, whiskey-brined pork chops and pumpkin seed-crusted salmon. Happy hour Mon-Fri, 4:30-6:30pm!

    One of the best BBQ places in L.A., they also have the most extensive whiskey and drink selections in town. Definitely two thumbs up from a Texan.
