HIGHLAND PARK — Cafe Birdie is the sort of “trendy, New American, cocktail-heavy restaurant” that one normally associates with Hollywood or downtown, according to LA Weekly. Except it’s in Highland Park — the latest trendy restaurant to pop up in a neighborhood that was once given over mainly to Mexican food.
Run by Friends & Family Hospitality Group (which also owns Horse Thief BBQ), the new Figueroa Street restaurant is a “Cal-Med neighborhood bistro,” with menu items such as Moroccan-spiced fried chicken with harissa, mint and lime; Manila clams with chorizo, crispy garbanzo beans and green garlic, served with toasted ciabatta; house-made pasta including passatelli with squid ink, Dungeness crab, uni butter, cherry tomatoes and basil; and butcher’s pasta with veal, lamb, ricotta, cavatelli, mint and parsley.
More details in the LA Weekly .
Cafe Birdie will be open 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, and 5 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday. It’s located on the 5600 block of N. Figueroa in Highland Park.
