THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Flints Restaurant Review

: If the velvet curtains to the private room are drawn, it’s likely there’s a card game going on back there, not a dinner---Flints is that kind of place. Cigar-store maven Dodd Harris (of The Big Easy in Westwood and Studio City) opened this atmospheric bar and restaurant in a space that was once a speakeasy, which explains why during remodeling he found gleaming maple under the Formica covering the bar. You can order a Flintini---the house drink made with Absolut Kurant, Chambord, lime and cranberry juice and a touch of cinnamon---before choosing from a menu of mostly retro comfort food with a few over-the-top dishes like challah french toast with grilled turkey sausage and warm maple syrup. We’ve enjoyed the yellowfin tuna tartare or the spinach salad with warm apple-bacon dressing to start, followed by a hearty osso buco or juicy steak.
