Sawtelle continues to evolve into a culinary super-strip thanks to this sexy small-plates sanctum. Creamy pork cheek croquetas come with fat-cutting pickle slices. Chicken liver bruschetta turns naughty with the addition of juicy halved cherries. The artful finesse behind such dishes as a salad of symmetrically sliced nectarines and beets hints at the husband-and-wife chef team’s impressive résumé (L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon, the Bazaar). Cornmeal-crusted softshell crab fills out a hearty sandwich better than the lifeless brisket, but the fire-lit patio (and Mouton Cadet rosé) casts an even glow on the whole place. » 2024 Sawtelle Blvd., 424-273-6469 or floreslosangeles.com.
