LA Weekly's Description

Top Chef winner Elan Hall has created a clean, industrial, effortlessly cool space inside the old Alexandria Hotel in which to showcase his critically acclaimed Scottish-Jewish fusion food offerings. (The place is named after the neighborhood in Glasgow where his parents grew up.) Most nights, the white-walled box of a room is filled with hip foodie types, but often, the atmosphere gets turned upside-down depending on what's going on in the building (The Mezz bar is upstairs) or downtown itself (good luck getting a table on Art Walk Thursday nights). Even if it is crowded, the front bar offers its own pleasures: chatty bartenders, a nice view of the room and Hall playing around in his open kitchen, and an array of eclectic drink options (try the Desperate Housewife). Occasional live music.

    The menu is small, but changes frequently. Try the Beef Bone Marrow, Cucumber Salad with Garbonzo, and Potato Latkes. Chef Ilan Hall dreams up the dishes has a young and well-trained staff.

    The chef is best known as the kid who won the second season of "Top Chef." He builds dishes from the flavor up. These are not intellectual exercises.
