Little Bear Restaurant Review

: Little Bear is one of the better gastropubs in Los Angeles, upping the culinary cachet of the ever-gentrifying Arts District neighborhood (Church & State is just across the street). The lively crowd is eclectic; the old factory room, with airy two-story windows, is post-industrial but artsy. There’s a sprawling, rotating list of high-end Belgian beers, and also a roster of rarer American craft brews. Chef/co-owner Andre Guerrero’s menu transcends the usual pedestrian bar fare with a nod to Belgium, and has his own contemporary imprint, too. Starters like savory mushroom cakes are bound with cream and truffle oil, while gougère sliders combine crisp fried oysters, apple wood bacon and arugula. Mains are bold, from tender ale-braised short rib to a grilled smoked salmon offset with root vegetable brunoise, beluga lentils and lemon onion soubise. Finish with a smooth hazelnut pot de crème.
