The Quick Pitch: Oprah-approved chef Govind Armstrong (of the shuttered Table 8 and 8oz in L.A.) teams with Brad Johnson, a former BLT Steak managing partner, to bring seasonal, farmer’s market-focused fare for the first time to Baldwin Hills, the upper-middle-class African-American neighborhood south of the 10 freeway that’s been woefully barren of progressively-minded sit-down restaurants.
The Insider’s Dish: The freestanding building was previously a Golden Bird fried-chicken outpost—exactly the sort of fast food joint that has until this point exclusively dominated the area’s commercial corridors.
The Must-Order Item: A starter of grilled octopus with garbanzo beans, preserved lemon and cracked olive.
The Best Table: No. 42, in the corner that faces out toward both the windows and the open kitchen. You’ll lean back against the mid-century-style handcrafted wood slat screen.
The Industry Neighbor: It’s only a short drive east from the Sony Pictures studio lot in adjacent Culver City.
