The Friend Restaurant Review

: Silver Lake's old watering hole on Hyperion Avenue, Barbarella, has partly morphed into The Friend, a fun, artsy bar featuring pinball, works by Kenny Scharf and an upscale bar menu from chef Eric Greenspan. Look for craft cocktails alongside dishes such as buckwheat, corn and artichoke blini with olive tapenade and basil pistou, charcuterie plate, steak frites skewers, avocado toast, a couscous bowl and profiteroles.
