Brand Blvd and north Glendale is a beautiful, comfortable place that is depressingly short on quality eateries (just how many Armenian markets do you need in a neighborhood? jesus christ...)\r
When I saw this place open up it seemed to be constructed with some actual taste and my interest was immediately piqued.\r
I went in to assess and had a really pleasant experience. The atmosphere and layout isn't giant, but comfortable and classy. The design is on par with a moderately fancy Hollywood/Beverly based eatery.\r
The service was friendly, helpful, and speedy. She explained they specialize in locally grown, fresh, and organic food which is why they don't have a freezer. Because of this commendable dependence, the fluctuation of ingredients and item availability is to be expected.\r
All the items are a reasonable $6-10 and were flavorful, a decent size, and fresh tasting. I particularly appreciated the fact it wasn't drowned in grease and oil.\r
Are there better places in LA? Sure. But this is by far one of the best options in the area and deserves business to not only encourage quality growth, but because the food and drinks are actually quite good!
Pros: Nice aesthetic, local/organic food, friendly service
Cons: Ocassionally limited offerings (but expected w/ fresh food)
