A-Frame, Los Angeles, CA

A-Frame Restaurant Review

: David Reiss, owner of the Alibi Room, continues his reign on Washington Boulevard with the help of chef Roy Choi of the Kogi Korean BBQ-To-Go truck brigade. As the name suggests, it’s relatively easy to find A-Frame just from the architecture alone. Within the former shell of an IHOP, Choi has updated his restaurant with Hawaiian décor, and chef Johnny Yoo has revamped the menu. Food offerings are heavy on Hawaiian twists, as in taro hushpuppies, poke, chili rice cakes with cheddar and pineapple, and a "Loco Moco" hamburger steak with a sunny side up egg and Japanese curry. The "Chu Don't Know Mang" is a plate of pound cake churros that are made more decadent when dipped in chocolate malted ice cream. Tiki-inspired cocktails include the "Zombie Isle" made with fancy rums, lime, apricot and absinthe.
