Dining room at Cooks County, Los Angeles, CA

Cooks County Restaurant Review

: Claudio and Adria Blotta, who also own Barbrix in Silver Lake, have created an unfussy, approachable dining room where only sheafs of dried wheat and a glass-ensconced wine cellar dress up a rustically minimalist décor. Stools fashioned from old tractor seats (available for walk-ins) line a counter with a view into the kitchen. A global wine list offers some values and a wide selection is poured by the glass. Among snacks, you’ll find chicken liver crostini topped with cornichons, octopus with preserved lemon aïoli, and beets with white peach and fennel. Larger plates include roasted half chicken with panzanella salad, fisherman’s stew, and grilled pork with Japanese white yam purée and sugar plum. Desserts feature chocolate olive oil cake and brown butter beignets.
