Literati Bar and Grill
High-end comfort food is what you’ll find at this Wilshire Blvd eatery that reopened in 2009 in a more laid-back incarnation. Formerly called Literati 2—deemed a “serious little restaurant” by Angeleno Magazine—Literati Bar and Grill still embraces farm fresh, organic foods inside its small dining room. Large wood shutter windows let in plenty of sun, but there's also a patio for warmer months. Dinner showcases California-inspired cuisine in dishes like the Mediterranean lamb burger, Thai chicken salad, and flat bread pizzas. Housemade desserts include churros with chocolate and sorbet.
