3 New L.A. Restaurants You Have to Try This December

Famously thick flapjacks, a playful pink ”neobistro,” and more

From praline flapjacks to cocktail hour bites, here’s what you should be eating this December.

Sibling Rival


The team from the phenomenally popular, awkwardly named New York brunch spot Sunday in Brooklyn has come to the Hoxton hotel. Thankfully it has brought its trademarked (really) Sunday Pancakes—delightfully thick flapjacks topped with hazelnut-maple praline and brown butter—with them.

Death & Co.


The NYC imports continue with the launch of this seminal cocktail den on the West Coast. The dimly lit basement-level establishment will have a casual area called the Standing Room in the front for quick drinks. The main bar, for seated guests only, will also serve snacks and larger dishes.

Bar Restaurant


Chef Douglas Rankin, who worked under Ludo Lefebvre for years, strikes out on his own with this charming, pale pink “neobistro” in the old Malo space in Sunset Junction. The menu features playful French fare, like curly fries and plump mussels dijon atop milk toast; classic cocktails; and funky wines.
