The second Father's Office is undeniably pleasant, a gastronomically inclined bar fitted into the eastern flank of the old Helms Bakery building, crowded with people who know the difference between a lager and a double IPA. Flatscreens discreetly flash football scores in the corners, and long, lacquered-wood picnic tables stretch into the distance on the patio outside. You could spend a long Friday afternoon here, snacking on Spanish cheeses, glistening Spanish anchovies cured on the premises and dusted with lemon zest, and cumin-crusted skewers of lamb, which collapse in your mouth like a sigh. Chef-owner Sang Yoon is more or less the Los Angeles equivalent of David Chang, whose Ko in New York City sells out each day's seating in less time than it takes to crack an egg, and Yoon could probably get away with serving his goat-cheese gratiné in telephone booths if he felt like it. —Besha Rodell
