There’s a very specific comfort in having a dependable all-day restaurant in the neighborhood. And fortunately for Los Feliz, Kismet does just this — and also makes out-of-towners feel like they’re at home. Chef-owners Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson have been at the helm innovating their vegetable-forward menu blending local California produce with Middle Eastern flavors since opening in 2017. The accolades show no signs of slowing, although there’s always evolution of the best sort.
A hip, understated, and airy nook trusted to delight. In other words, very Los Feliz.
With a menu that helpfully articulates various dishes by shareability, it’s easy to navigate with any party size. Split the impossibly good Persian Crispy Rice amongst your group, or turn your attention to the “Go Big” section — the rabbit for two with all the fixings is a must.
By the way
Just a few doors down you will find Kismet Rotisserie, the more casual (but oh-so-satisfying) offshoot that hones its focus on the craft of rotisserie chicken. With schmaltzy potatoes on the side, of course.
