The Churchill

8384 W. 3rd St.
Los Angeles, CA 90048
The Churchill on Third Street in the Fairfax District might be known for its mimosa-filled brunches, neighborhood-centric happy hours or its DJ-fueled Saturday night scene, but there's also really excellent cooking and cocktailing happening here. Chef Bruce Kalman is making his own pasta (including killer spicy spaghetti) and charcuterie (using duck, lamb and pork); the Brussels sprouts are addictive; and there are Manhattans on tap. They've added a walk-up juice bar/vegan sandwich shop -- an outpost of Clover Juice -- so if short rib hash feels a little heavy, you have a more virtuous option.
