And has impeccable taste in wine.
And really knows how to wood-fire some Bolognese.
So without further ado, here’s Kettle Black, a charming new Italian situation bursting with amaro, handmade pastas and wood-fired meats, now open in Silver Lake. Please, have a slideshow and a menu.
This comes from the same crew behind Sawyer next door. They’ve converted this old Sunset Boulevard bank into a charming haven for you to orchestrate your next date night under 120 dangling lightbulbs and a wall mural of native plants. Just how you like it.
Start off by drinking things at the towering satin brass bar. Maybe you’ll have a Mozza alum suggest some wine or proprietary vermouth. Or order a cocktail designed by a Roger Room heavy. That’s all personal.
Dinner will be enjoyed on the front patio. Or at the small counter abutting the open kitchen, where a former Petit Trois chef will make your meatball-and-sausage-covered pizzas and garganelli Bolognese in a wood-fired oven.
Or come by casually for a beer and a meatball sandwich at happy hour. It’s two hours every afternoon. And three late-night hours every Sunday through Wednesday.
It’s almost like it’s never not happy hour.
