Abbot Kinney in Venice Seaside is a busy road stuffed with vegan, natural, pure hipster-driven companies. However, tucked information a storefront between a mystic bookstore and customized jewellery boutique, Yours Really is actually a neighborhood restaurant, or as their web site states, “an earnest neighborhood restaurant.”
Positioned within the former Salt Air house, Yours Really serves a “trendy California” menu impressed by Chef Vartan Abgaryan’s roots as a local Angeleno, Armenian-American and classically-trained chef.
The house has an informal beachy really feel with whitewashed brick, contemporary greenery, gentle wooden tables with white chairs and vibrant orange banquettes.
Previous to Yours Really, Chef Abgaryan was at Cliff’s Edge in Silver Lake after which at 71Above in downtown LA. I’ve loved his meals at each earlier areas and Yours Really was no exception. At Yours Really, trendy California is exemplified by a menu that blends Center Japanese, Japanese, Italian and Mexican flavors in artistic, scrumptious plates.
Avocado Hummus is easy mix of avocados, tahini and garlic topped with salsa macha, peanuts and lime and served with heat za’atar flatbread.
Heirloom Tomatoes are thinly sliced and served with plums, a easy feta cream, pickled pearl onions, basil, grains of paradise and olive oil. This colourful plate is so contemporary and the candy tartness of the plums with the pickled onions and candy tomatoes make for an ideal summer season salad.
Zucchini Blossoms are tempura battered and stuffed with yuzu kosho, bagna cauda, lime and home made ricotta.
Fingerling Potatoes are like no others you may have had. Impressed by Italian cacio e pepe, as an alternative of pasta, the fingerling potatoes are delicate and gnocchi-like. Cooked in olive oil, they’re served with an egg yolk, black peppercorn, Pecorino and Parmesan. Clean and creamy, that is a unprecedented dish.
Kanpachi is served with rhubarb, daikon, verjus, lime, inexperienced tea, basil and mint. The broth is tart, bitter and contemporary.
BBQ Octopus is good and savory with plenty of taste. Meaty and crispy octopus is served with peach bbq, lebni, mustard seeds, watercress, aleppo pepper and lemon.
Mussels & Clams are in a broth of poblano, coconut, cilantro and lime and served with a inexperienced garlic baguette. I beloved the freshness of the coconut broth with a touch of warmth and particularly beloved the grapes that add sweetness.
Mild and contemporary and but a lot taste, Lemon Curd with creme fraiche, elederflower marinated strawberries, poppy seed crumble, strawberry granita, herbs and flowers make for an ideal summer season dessert.
Chef Abgaryan’s trendy California menu is filled with taste and creativity and Yours Really is a welcome gem on Abbot Kinney.
