Son of A Gun, LA
finally! a new cool restaurant in LA that's name is just as awesome as their mellow hip vibe, amazing customer service, and killer (i mean, killer) food!! Son of A Gun in LA has to be the fireman & i's new favorite foodie spot... aside from their sister spot, Animal (near the Grove in LA). we were greeted at our seat with 'on the house' sparkling & flat water by a server that was energetic, optimistic, and super informative. (i mean, come on... nothing says amazing like free sparkling water! i'm serious.) once we sat down we felt like we were at a friend's house for dinner... like a friend that can really cook and has some serious interior design skills. the restaurant is small and quaint with awesome vintage treasures that are used as decor, jars that are used as cups, and a vibe that was authentically cool. these guys know exactly what they're doing... and they are really good at it. AND the food was kind of amazing too!! it was actually the best part. the menu is created daily with the freshest and most creative combinations of seafood (raw & cooked), farmers market fresh salads (the kale ceaser was awesome), and desserts that are full of fresh flavor. every single thing we ate had a unique zing! i don't even know how to describe it... a party in your mouth? let's just say these two chef's Vinny Dotolo & Jon Shook (who were recently guest judges on Top Chef) are a head of the curve and have some serious serious thinking out of the box, kinda skills. we will definitely be back.
*ps: Animal is like the meat version of Son of A Gun... and is just as yummy.
**Vinny Dotolo & Jon Shoot also just wrote a cook book together called Two Dudes One Pan, i got it for the fireman for Valentine's Day... it's one we'll for sure share.
