THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED World Fare Bustaurant Restaurant Review

: The World Fare Bustaurant offers not only dynamic and upscale street food, but also, bless their hearts, a place to eat it that’s not on the edge of a curb. This converted English double-decker bus has a kitchen on the bottom and standing café tables on the top. It’s nice to have a view and a table other than your lap, and the stylish setting is matched by food created by executive chef Andi Van Willigan, a protégé of Gordon Ramsay (his sous chef on Hell’s Kitchen) and Michael Mina (at Stonehill Tavern). Accordingly, the dishes are sophisticated enough for a Beverly Hills eatery, but priced for the street. We recommend the signature “bunny chow”---a brioche roll filled with unctuous braised short rib and horseradish crème fraîche. It also comes in variations filled with organic Jidori chicken curry or barbecue pork. Other seductive must-have bites include truffle mac ‘n’ cheese balls, a dreamy butterscotch bread pudding, and house-made strawberry basil lemonade. Also look for daily blackboard specials.
