Bar Caló Restaurant Review

: Husband and wife duo Jaime Turrey and Brooke Fruchtman (Ostrich Farm) are behind this chic new all-day neighborhood spot in Echo Park. A Mexican-inspired California menu features poblano-corn pancakes with poached egg and salsa ranchera, chilaquiles mole with fried egg, ocean trout with chipotle mayo, salt roasted spot prawns, and market oysters with a trio of mignonettes. Look for sophisticated craft cocktails from Jeremy Simpson (Good Housekeeping, Bestia), a broad mezcal and tequila list, and a select wine and beer list with Mexican choices.
