The Eat Sheet: Hot New Restaurant -- Black Hogg

THR’s pick of the week for industry dining brings of-the-moment gastropub grub to Silver Lake.

The Quick Pitch: Eric Park, who trained at Eleven Madison Park and the Spotted Pig, riffs on the neo-gastropub canon — chicken liver on toast with chicken cracklings, split marrow bones with radishes, oysters with spicy pickle juice — at his several-week-old Eastside boite, which is designed in modern-minimalist style by Brendan Ravenhill, the industrial architect previously responsible for Osteria La Buca’s latest look.

The Insider’s Dish: Park’s start-up money came out of savings from running a Togo’s chain sandwich shop near USC for nearly a decade straight out of college.

The Must-Order Item: Popcorn bacon with maple crema.

The Industry Neighbor: Indie label Dangerbird Records, whose roster runs from the Silversun Pickups to Fitz and the Tantrums.
