THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES Flores Restaurant Review

: Opening Flores in LA's Westside Little Tokyo marks a sort of homecoming for Amal Flores. His father, artist Gene Flores, had exhibited at 2024 Sawtelle Boulevard back in the 1960s. Amal Flores improved a lot of the former Sawtelle Kitchen space himself, including the walnut wood paneling. Other features include a horseshoe-shaped counter, bar, two patios and free Wi-Fi. Flores banded with an ├╝ber restaurant team to deliver comforting and creative New American cuisine. Dishes like Texas Caviar (black-eyed peas, poached egg and smoked ham hock) are executed by the Texan husband-and-wife team of Angela Hernandez and Rob Lawson. Combined they have held positions at restaurants such as Corton, L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon and Gordon Ramsay at The London in New York, as well as The Bazaar by Jose Andres, and Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air. The menu offers snacks (housemade pickles, pig cheek croquetas), cold items (oysters, ocean trout crudo), charcuterie (jamon Serrano, salami di Varzi), cheeses, small plates (chicken liver bruschetta, Spanish meatballs) and large plates (soft shell crab sandwich, hanger steak). Pastry chef Cesar Bermudez Cifuentes, who hails from Barcelona, turns out desserts such as strawberries with vinegar caramel and yogurt espuma, and Meyer lemon posset with almond in Cognac. A limited beer and wine list is available.
