No restaurant feels quite as of the moment as this joint from Pitfire Pizza cofounder Paul Hibler, where chef Jason Neroni’s small plates change with the tides. A black garlic sauce accompanies a rustic campagnola terrine. Unusual salads sport such Asian touches as puffed rice and miso blue cheese. Fried chicken and a brazen duck egg take on papas bravas are among the “snacks.” Handmade pasta is a must-order, whether it’s the rare creste de gallo with mussels and chorizo or the casa-recce with crispy sardines and bottarga bread crumbs. Throwback desserts, like the banana split, are playful, if out of place. » 533 Rose Ave., 310-399-6400 or superbasnackbar.com.
