Crow Bar and Kitchen Review by Jesse Bluma

Crow Bar and Kitchen

  If you are looking for a new restaurant to explore, check out Crow Bar and Kitchen.  I've managed to pop into Crow Bar and Kitchen a few times this year.  It's more than a bar, offering an ample selection of spirits and British-American cuisine.  The hamburgers are probably the best choice on their menu.  Let me know what you think!

"It is called a GASTROPUB, a British term for a public house (pub) which specializes in high-quality food, steps above the more basic "pub grub”.  The name is a combination of pub and gastronomy and was coined in 1991 when David Eyre and Mike Belben opened a pub called ‘The Eagle’ in London.

Gastropubs typically have an atmosphere which is relaxed and a focus on offering cuisine prepared as well as it is in the best of restaurants.  Staying true to the format requires a menu that complements the assortment of beers and wines the gastropub offers.  Some describe gastropubs as the Anglo-equivalent of the French brasserie, Italian trattoria or the Japanese izakaya."

I attended the FG Magazine fashion show on Saturday, March 20 featuring the swimwear lines of ED HARDY, TRUE RELIGION, BEJEWELED, and ANDREW CHRISTIAN.  The show was well attended and gave a preview of men's and women's summer wear.  The venue was on the rooftop of a historic building, The Kress in Hollywood, California, featuring Art Deco style, neon lights, and city views.
