THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Butchers & Barbers Restaurant Review

: Butchers & Barbers inhabits a historic Hollywood building founded by two studio heads in 1917 as apartments for aspiring actors. (Charlie Chaplin and Clara Bow were among the famous former tenants.) What is now the ├╝ber-noisy bar and dining area was once a barbershop, and tools of that trade (including an old-fashioned barber chair) are positioned throughout. Meat hooks refashioned as light fixtures pay tribute to the other half of the restaurant's name, a reference to Sweeney Todd. There's also seating on the sidewalk patio, right on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This classic American bistro comes from the Houston brothers: Mark and Jonnie. You'll know them from Piano Bar, La Descarga, Harvard & Stone and other successful bars, speakeasies and lounges. It was time to get serious about food. The kitchen turns out platters of charcuterie; mussels with white wine, tomato conserva, dried chili and thyme; and flat-iron steak with bone marrow jus. In house tradition, there is a serious cocktail program. A suggestion for dessert, chase your meal with a visit to Dirty Laundry, their speakeasy around the corner, for an adult "Cherry Popper" slushy, or a burlesque show at No Vacancy, a lounge in a Victorian-style house. This would nicely round out your Hollywood night on the town.
