Little Bear, Los Angeles, CA

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. 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 feature Belgian fries with Parmesan and truffle oil, and a Sriracha mac n’ cheese. Mains are bold, from tender ale-braised short rib to Alaska pot caught cod with lemon rémoulade. Finish with a smooth hazelnut pot de crème. There’s a sprawling, rotating list of high-end Belgian beers, and also a roster of rarer American craft brews.
