THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sabor Restaurant Review

: Inheriting the space of a strategically located but thoroughly forgettable Italian joint is this restaurant with sleek lines, modern art and plasma screens above the bar creating a stylish, contemporary environment. Candles wink in the dim lighting as Cuban specialties like ropa vieja (a respectable version at that) and lechón asada are whisked over to red linen-topped tables. A trio of empanadas with a refreshing mojito is a good way to begin an evening here. Despite its self-described “Latin Fusion Cuisine," Sabor's menu is dominated by traditional Cuban cooking, with a few dishes from other Latin nations (e.g. Peruvian ceviche) thrown in for kicks, along with a couple of teriyaki-sauced dishes. For lunch, enjoy a hefty medianoche (pressed ham, pork and cheese sandwich) with plantain chips and herbed aïoli. For dessert, you’ll find torrejas (a sort of Cuban take on pain perdu not often found in L.A.), flan or bread pudding.
