Did you know that you can have a wonderful meal on Sunset Boulevard and feel like you're dining in a secluded hillside cabin? I didn't until we visited Eveleigh. It was love at first sight and bite.
Is your mouth watering yet? Even with those tragically dark photos? Believe it or not, the other pictures that night were worse. Be glad I spared you from more unjust representations of Eveleigh's fabulous food!
Fear not, though! Here are the dishes from our earlier and better lit dinner.
Housemade ginger beer with housemade candied ginger
Baby Brussels sprouts, in-house bacon, soft hen egg ($12).
Black Tuscan kale, coriander, yogurt-tahini, fried onions ($12).
Eveleigh does its veggies right. This was no exception.
Barcelona bun -- brioche, chorizo, Manchego ($6).
Grilled octopus, crushed fingerlings, arugula, harissa crème fraîche ($14).
Pot-roasted mussels, chorizo, lemon, chili, parsley, aioli ($12).
French fries, truffled aioli ($8).
Sonoma lamb meatballs, crunchy breadcrumb salsa, lamb chopper gouda ($16).
Confit duck leg, buttered beluga lentils, sour savoy cabbage ($18).
Large press coffee ($10).
Warm doughnuts, spiced sugar, citrus curd, whipped cream ($10).
Pavlova, California berries, dried lime and rose syrup, cream ($9).
Dessert of the day -- S'mores pot de crème.
Eveleigh is a delight. It's a great place for groups to eat, drink, and eat some more.
