Faith & Flower



Edgy but not alienating, ambitious but not brash: It’s a tough line to walk but necessary for a 165-seat restaurant near the Staples Center. The team behind Faith & Flower—including chef Michael Hung, formerly of the Bay Area’s La Folie—is trying to pull it off with a menu that plunks pizzas and Jidori chicken among adventurous, globally inspired creations. Oxtail agnolotti with bone marrow butter, beef tendon chicharrónes, and tangerine salsa smack of guilty-pleasure Chinese takeout. Japanese-style egg noodles are tossed with Berkshire pork and a miso “bolognese.” The wine list is thoughtful for those who care, familiar for those who don’t, and the cocktails—among them a tiki-ish Milk Punch—are killer. » 705 W. 9th St., 213-239-0642.
