The December Hit List: Lulu, Bridgetown Roti, Tokki, and More

By

It feels downright festive in L.A. right now. Dining rooms are packed, drinks are flowing, dishes are being shared, there’s actually laughter and conversation, and…hugs. Things feel like they’re getting back to normal, even if a few mandates (masks, proof of vaccination) are in place. No complaints: it’s all we can do to keep things moving in the right direction.

Winter months bring a new crop of seasonal ingredients on menus and more heat lamps on the patios — neither of which is a bad thing — plus a slew of newcomers to add to your dining roster. That could mean Roman-style al dente pastas at Bacetti in Silver Lake; Lulu, a David Tanis-Alice Waters joint at The Hammer; or Bridgetown Roti, a Caribbean pop-up that’s worth following around town. Read about those and more in this month’s Hit List.
