THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Susan Feniger's STREET Restaurant Review

: Susan Feniger has been writing Los Angeles culinary history since 1981 with City Café, City Restaurant, Border Grill and Ciudad with her partner Mary Sue Milliken. After training in France and regular travels to India, Thailand and Mexico, Feniger opened City Restaurant, her first concept of "street" food in 1985, before specializing in Mexican and Latin cuisines with the later places. Now with STREET, she went back to her cooking roots and spent more time in India, to introduce more exciting street-food dishes. They come not only from India but from many other parts of the world. From Singapore, try the kaya toast, a grilled toast filled with coconut jam to dip in a sunny side-up egg. Move to Japan with tatsutage fried chicken nuggets with yuzu kosho dipping sauce, and to China with Szechuan pot stickers. Potato samosas are paired with tamarind date chutney, cucumber chile and mint yogurt. As you can imagine reading these rather exotic dishes, the same treatment goes for the noodles, burgers and salads as well as the items baked in the wood oven --- yes, a wood oven on Highland Avenue --- like Moroccan spiced lamb belly. End the feast with Croatian apple fritters or chocolate pound cake. Whether you sit on the great outdoor patio or inside, you will definitely like the décor of upscale graffiti. There’s a short wine list as well as specialty cocktails. Brunch features a selection of unlimited small plates for $25, with the option to add bottomless sparkling cocktails for $15. Happy hour is offered Mon.-Fri. from 5 p.m.-7 p.m.
