Two new loves- Wirsthaus & Rosewood Tavern
Now I don’t have to drive all the way past downtown to get my German sausage & beer fix at Wurstküche!
Wirtshaus hopes to carve a niche for itself with a menu of updated German classics and a menu 30 German beers. Though the menu feature four kinds of wurst including weisswurst, bratwurst and a vegetarian sausage, it also includes potato pancakes with mascarpone applesauce, schnitzel, cheese spaetzle, pretzel rolls, three kinds of house-made mustard and “spaghettieis.”What are spaghettieis (pronounced “spa-getty-ice”)? A popular German dessert made with vanilla ice cream that’s shaped like spaghetti noodles and topped with cream, strawberry mousse, fresh strawberries, white chocolate or coconut shavings (to resemble Parmesan cheese) and chocolate flakes (black pepper).
Wirsthaus serves Californian and German wines, along with housemade pretzels, schnitzel, and knödel over lunch and dinner. Head over for a delicious and authentic German experience.
Wirtshaus: 345 N. La Brea Ave., LA. (323) 931-9291 www.wirtshausla.com
Shooting over from La Brea to Fairfax Ave my new favorite neighborhood spot:
Scotch. Draft Beer. Chops. Rustic. Classy. Sold.
Welcome to Rosewood Tavern, the next much-anticipated neighborhood spot from the owner of the Bowery, George Abou-Daoud. Like most of the owner’s places (District, Mercantile, Delancey), this one already feels well-worn and full of stories: a cavernous hall of concrete, high ceilings , open windows and exposed beams that gives you the sense everybody’s been sitting around the worn in communal table, sipping scotch and carving into steaks, for years.
Grab your friends, your lady and head in to the only tavern in the ‘hood, start off with the indian spiced chicken wings, order a scotch or whiskey from their premium selection and continue your journey from there.
Every man needs to know where to get a SHINE: Lonnie’s Farmers Market Shoe Shine
I completely adore the 3rd street Farmer’s Market, the history in it’s shops and the history of the people who still go there. Lonnie Keelen is the owner of Market Shoe Shine and has 14 years experience. In addition to regular shines, he offers spit shine and high shine service. Farmers Market Shoe Shine is open seven days a week from 9 am to 5 pm.
