Journeymen, the Atwater Village restaurant in the space once occupied by the adored Canelé, is a neighborhood spot that's striving for more — and it's an exciting thing to see. Helmed by chef David Wilcox and general manager Guy Tabibian, who crossed paths at Venice's equally beloved Gjelina and Gjusta, Journeymen is an ambitious concept; the excellent house-made bread, for instance, is a testament to how much care and effort the kitchen can exert. It deservedly gets a lot of attention, served on its own with cultured butter or charred with a caponata-esque eggplant relish with plump golden raisins and crème fraîche–consistency Liwa goat cheese. As for the scene, everyone looks as if they're having a good time, whether tucked into a banquette or gazing out the window at the characters walking by on Glendale. Read our full review.
