Farida, Los Angeles, CA

Farida Restaurant Review

: Restaurateur George Abou-Daoud's (Delancey, Bowery) Farida is a modernist Middle Eastern restaurant on Sunset Boulevard. Look for contemporary and traditional interpretations of regional Middle Eastern cuisine, with dishes like Mountain Prep Lamb Awarma, which follows a traditional mountainside preparation process and is served alongside hummus bi tahini, a nut and fig medley, lamb cracklings and a soft egg. Other dishes include stuffed squash with pistachio butter, olive oil cured eggplant and lavender crêpes. Cocktails such as the Arak Sazerac and the Fig Bourbon Fizz focus on the sweeter aspects of Mideast flavors with rosewater, mint, orange blossom, pomegranate and fig.
