American Comfort Food

  • 2016 Best Spirits Selection
Overview

Nestled in one of Los Feliz’s midcentury modern buildings is MessHall, an all-day restaurant and bar turning out reimagined American fare using local, sustainable ingredients in dishes like KC-style baby back ribs, smoked trout or short rib poutine, alongside sandwiches, burgers, salads and a raw bar. The industrial-chic dining room, bar and courtyard provide additional spaces to imbibe craft beers, artisanal spirits, a handful of barrel-aged drinks, flights and house cocktails like the Hans Gruber (rye, yellow Chartreuse, pimento dram, hopped grapefruit bitters).
