This sort-of-Austrian spot on Sunset in Silver Lake is all over the place - in the best way possible. They serve tiny, buttery tuna and kanpachi melt sandwiches, grilled chicken wings doused salsa macha, and glazed cod with roasted turnips and a scallion oil you’ll be licking off the plate. Despite packing a lot of seats into a small space, it’s still nice and quiet inside, which makes it ideal for a date. It might seem like the kind of place where you’d grab some wine (they’ve got a mostly Austrian list) and a couple small plates, but the food is so good that we recommend sticking around for the whole meal. And don’t leave without getting the knödel - a potato dumpling dessert, covered in brown butter and stuffed with an entire poached pluot. It’s a unique dish that’s perfect for anyone who doesn’t like overly sweet desserts.
