From chefs Brandon Sharp and Gustavo Rios of Solage’s Solbar, this neighborhood bistro is for those with a Creole soul. It might be the right place to break your foie gras fast (in California, at least) with a mouthwatering version accompanied by seasonal fruit and toasted brioche. Satisfying mains include expert versions of poulet grand-mère (that would be Grandma’s chicken) or braised pork shoulder. But to taste the true South, follow the rotating specials: shrimp étouffée, gumbo ya-ya—any of them even better with a side of fried pickles.
