The popularity of the “gastropub” restaurant concept has exploded in recent years, and in some LA neighborhoods it is tough to find a block that doesn’t have a burger-and-beer joint or a restaurant serving upscale comfort food. But even if the trend is starting to feel a little played-out, many of the city’s gastropubs transcend the label and serve really great food paired with the best in craft beer.
The list is based on an open thread that was run on the Eater Los Angeles site last week, and it’s tough to argue with the final 16. The resulting round-up post features a clickable map and brief blurbs on all 16 of their picks.
Beer of Tomorrow favorites The Village Idiot, Mohawk Bend, Beer Belly, and of course Father’s Office get nods; check out the post for the full list of favorites.
