Electric Owl is on a plot of land that was once the location of a train depot, and the building — designed by prolific design firm Spacecraft — pays homage to that history with a vintage-inspired interior that feels like an old train station. While the interior of the restaurant is incredibly appealing, it's the bricked-in outdoor patio/bar that gets most of the action, especially on these early summer evenings. It's a space that is almost perfectly geared toward the West Hollywood after-work drinks crowd, and that crowd is taking full advantage. The first section of the menu is dedicated to a short list of pizzas. The rest of the menu is far more ambitious. There's a lovely sweet pea salad with a tangy carrot romesco and creamy stracciatella cheese, and a young market lettuce salad with fruit and nuts and honey mustard, which is a touch too sweet but otherwise vibrant and fresh.
