Being Monday, we simply refuse to do it to you.
So here’s Mixed Company, a new Sunset Boulevard corner from Black Cat’s owners that manages to merge all three with pastries, pizzas and fermented beverages in Silver Lake. It’s open now, and here’s the slideshow.
What you have here is a mural-streaked wedge of a former laundromat that’s now strapped with a wine bar, a wood-fired oven and windows looking out onto all the vehicular/perambulatory action outdoors.
Here’s how you’ll use it...
To start your day.
Hit the pastry case on your road to wherever. Grab a PB&J croissant or a Fruity Pebbles morning bun with some Wisconsin coffee and get on your way. Even if it’s just on your way to the patio.
To get the group back together.
Your regular brunch group, that is. For English muffins with smoked ham or chorizo. Or combined in one monstrously decadent “Hangover” sandwich. You love a good compromise.
To conduct a low-key dinner date.
The ghost-pepper-salumi-and-honey pizza will be hot. The pork shoulder will be smoked. The sherry will flow from taps. And your server will refuse tips.
Even your one about sunscreen.
