The more casual cousin of Los Feliz spot Kismet (which we love), Kismet Rotisserie serves roast chicken, pitas, and salads that you eat on the sidewalk along Hollywood. Which is good, because you’re probably not going to make it to your car before diving head-first into their crispy-skinned chicken. Focus on that chicken - and douse it with the accompanying garlic sauce and chili oil - and the vegetable sides, especially the cauliflower, cabbage, and roasted Schmaltzy Potatoes. Skip the pita sandwiches, though - there’s too much arugula, not enough chicken, and even less flavor.
