Sycamore Tavern recently opened in Hollywood, replacing 10-year-old Happy Ending and in the process elevating the neighborhood just a touch.
Owned by the same restaurant group (Happy to Serve You Hospitality Group) that operated Happy Ending, Sycamore Tavern will keep all the TVs (so it's still a sports bar), but a new focus on food could draw in a crowd more diverse than exclusively basic bros.

Antonia Lofaso, who came to food fame with a stint on Top Chef and now is beloved by fans of Scopa on the Westside and Black Market in the Valley, consulted on the menu at Sycamore Tavern, too. It's a bit of a grab-bag of elevated pub grub, from pimento cheese served with Ritz crackers to salmon ceviche to tempura broccoli, along with a burger, sandwiches and a "fish-o-filet" with American cheese, cabbage, pickles and tartar sauce.
And a full bar, of course.
7038 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood; (323) 467-7038, sycamoretavern.com. Open Mon.–Fri. 4 p.m.–2 a.m.; Sat. and Sun. 11 a.m.–2 a.m. (8 a.m. for select games).
