    Tomato spice fries are the absolute best fries. Lamb meatballs also awesome. Drinks are strong. Super fun place.

    Everything is nomworthy, but the grilled "cheese course" and duck confit latke are the winners.

    This pairs well with the L.A. Art Walk (first Thursday of every month). Make sure to make a reservation if you do that though! Live music some nights. Bacon wrapped matzo balls!

    Get the Nueske's bacon-wrapped matzoh balls, a delightfully tasty paradox in food tradition. Happy hours yield half-off all bar items, which will prove useful at The Gorbals' full bar.

    Ilan Hall is one of two LA-based Top Chef champions, and his restaurant The Gorbals is just one place reality TV fans can see throughout Los Angeles.

    Best brunch EVER; bizarre bathroom situation.

    If you're willing to risk eternal perdition for a menu item, try the bacon matzo ball soup - the soft matzo infused with chicken soup contrast perfectly with the bacon. Read more

    Squid ink is a must but everything else is over seasoned and most things are overpowered by an ingredient.

    A must for the single diner. Two options for seating: bar + chefs station. It's a 'this isn't awkward spot' for the Table for 1 crowd

    Don't snap at the majordomo if the reservation for 12 is seated with a party of 8 at a table made for 18. I did & I was served last of the party of 12, which is either karma or wait staff vengeance.

    Sticky toffee pudding is a great way to end your meal! Loved that they add just the right amount of salt to counteract the sweet. The super creamy banana-cinammon ice cream hides a surprise.
