Peek Inside Farida, the New Middle Eastern Restaurant in Hollywood From Bowery Bungalow's Chef

Farida, the new restaurant from Bowery Bungalow's George Abou-Daoud, is named for his Lebanese-Palestinian-Egyptian grandmother, and it aims to honor her legacy with food that nods to that broad heritage. We need people like Abou-Daoud to remind us of the origins of this food, to care as much as he does, to keep pointing out the complexity of the region. And Hollywood needs a smart, fun, colorful place to eat, one that's not too expensive but not too down-and-out, a quality neighborhood option to counter all the glam and grime and tourist bait surrounding it.
