Eva: 99 Essential Restaurants 2011

"We only wanted to be loved," howled PiL's John Lydon. And there is almost nothing Eva's Mark Gold, a veteran of Joachim Splichal's haute cuisine armies of the night, will not resort to if he thinks it might make you love him, too. Fancy an all-you-can-eat fried chicken night? Done. Reasonably priced cocktails? Sure. Pork belly confit, chicken Milanese and halibut with smoked potatoes? You don't even have to ask. Sunday family dinners you might actually want to bring your family to? Sure. Eva is a cozy bistro friendly to kids and regulars, neither too loud nor too brightly lit, with a gently priced wine list and a market-driven seasonal Cal-Med menu at popular prices. Nobody will tell you, unless you ask, that the meats are cooked sous vide, that somebody shlepped to the farmers market at 7 a.m. to pick out the baby carrots or that the intricately carved fingerlings come from Weiser, the local god of potatoes, but if you've spent much time in better Los Angeles restaurants, you just know: Gold pays attention to the details. 7458 Beverly Blvd., L.A.
