THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Fritzi Coop Restaurant Review

: If a meal at Redbird would bust your budget, check out Fritzi Coop for a more wallet-friendly way to try chef Neal Fraser's food. (This casual spot used to be called simply Fritzi, but the concept has shifted to be more like Fraser's fried chicken stand in the Original Farmers Market.) Fritzi Coop shares a building with Arts District Brewing Company in what’s become a fashionable part of downtown L.A. The brews are offered here, while Fritzi's food is also served next door via a window from the shared kitchen. Chicken is available in three different ways: rotisserie, "naked" fried (gluten-free and "guilt-free") and classic buttermilk fried. You'll also find generous salads, sandwiches and sides of vegetables and potatoes in various guises (mashed, fries, tots, waffles). We think the enameled metal dishes would be more at home at an army canteen or campsite rather than a restaurant, but, to each his own. Assorted cakes and cookies from Cake Monkey can satisfy your sweet tooth, but we'd suggest saving that stomach room for the savory part of the meal. Fritzi Coop may be a very informal place, but it does boast a cocktail menu that's worth a look.
