Perch’s monopoly on downtown’s rooftop dining scene is a thing of the past. While the view from the outdoor deck at Kitchen Table isn’t as soaring (you’re looking down on Bäco Mercat next door), the solid grub makes up for it. The entrées are categorized by generic headings like Cow, Pig, Bird, Fish, or Earth. On our visit Cow was a hefty hanger steak with a sultry pommes fondue and cipollini. Pig was represented by pork cheeks with spaetzle, green apple, and mustard. The Bird offering was quail, and Earth highlighted wild mushrooms. A butter lettuce salad was dressed with red grapes, Mahón cheese, and baby artichokes. » 410 S. Main St., 213-617-3000 or kitchentabledtla.com.
