From a breakfast burrito truck’s brick-and-mortar to a rustic Italian spot in Larchmont, here are three new restaurants you need to try in September.
Lincoln Carson’s all-day brasserie is yet another reason to eat in the Arts District. Canapés, like Uni Caviar Tartelette ($22) and Chicken Liver Gougère ($10), are a perfect start and showcase Carson’s pastry chops—he oversaw the bread and dessert program at the Mina Group. But mains, like a Jidori chicken with a salad inspired by San Francisco’s Zuni ($70, meant to be shared), also impress. 712 S. Santa Fe Ave., Arts District.https://www.instagram.com/p/Byg5a5Zh5q_/
Chi Spacca alum Chad Colby strikes out on his own with a rustic Italian spot in a strip mall. Start with the antipasti ($9 a person) featuring focaccia and cured meats made in-house, carb up on Colby’s superb pastas, and then share the Antico steak ($44). Find room for fresh strawberry ice cream topped with farmers’ market fave Harry’s Berries. 4653 Beverly Blvd., Larchmont.https://www.instagram.com/p/B1eRHlKBWCg/
The beloved breakfast burrito truck now has a cheery brick-and-mortar location. The Rico Suave ($10), with eggs, bacon, tater tots, two cheeses, salsa, cilantro crema, and avocado, is the classic move, but there’s also a breakfast sandwich, a burger, and tacos if you prefer to start your day in a different way. 8809 W. Pico Blvd., Pico-Robertson.
