Set in the former Brock & Company jewelry store, an old Hollywood mainstay favorited by the likes of Mary Pickford, is this ornate Los Angeles sister restaurant (replacing Mas Malo) to Stockholm’s “fast fine” dining destination 1889. Elements of the building’s lavish past are showcased throughout the sprawling space, including a jewelry counter-style front bar, gold accents and the original vault turned intimate seating area - set alongside colorful street art-influenced murals and palm trees.
The all-day eatery serves up Genovese-style sourdough pizza (think beet and arugula with roasted garlic and Gorgonzola); shareable dishes such as eggplant caponata with pork skins, fennel, honey and lemon oil; and craft cocktails.
