Eva: 99 Essential Restaurants 2013 

Thursday, Feb 28 2013
Comments

Eva is the sort of restaurant you never want to leave, not only in the sense that you want to linger over the plates of Wagyu beef and charred leeks, the bowls of fennel soup with raw spot prawns and toasted buckwheat, the perfectly ripe melon that chef-owner Mark Gold might suddenly decide to slice on the table before you for your dessert. You want to stay and admire the black-and-white Hans Gissinger photographs on the pale gray walls, the enormous bouquets of foraged herbs that spill out of the kitchen, the books and whatnot that decorate the stunningly gorgeous little restaurant. (You might feel like you've wandered into the last, best curio workshop on Beverly Boulevard.) Gold can add to this unwillingness to go home, as he's wont to emerge (cowboy hat, red espadrilles) from his kitchen, pull up a chair and start conversations between tables. Let him. It may be the most fun you've had at a fine-dining restaurant in a long time. You'll get your bill — pressed inside a vintage book like a wayward bookmark — soon enough. 7458 Beverly Blvd., W. Hlywd.; (323) 634-0700, evarestaurantla.com. Wed.-Sat., 6-9 p.m.; Sun., 11 a.m.-2 p.m. & 5-9 p.m. Entrees $24-$39. Full bar.
