New L.A. Restaurants, Bars and Updated Favorites for Fall 2017

Each week Variety’s Devour section adds a new spot to check out, or finds something fresh at an old favorite.

Italian Seafood is Always in Season at Cal Mare
Holiday shopping at the remodeled Beverly Center just got more delicious with the arrival of Cal Mare, from Michael Mina’s restaurant group. Combining coastal Italian cuisine with California’s seasonal ingredients, chef Adam Sobel’s accessible menu features handmade pastas, grilled wild fish, brick-oven pizzas and a caviar and housemade mozzarella section. Drinks include a selection of limoncellos,
an extensive amari list and coastal wines of Italy. 8500 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles

Native’s Soulful, Local Style

Chef Nyesha Arrington incorporates flavors from around the world seen through an Angeleno’s lens at her stylish new Santa Monica restaurant Native. Soulful dishes emphasizes the bounty of the nearby farmer’s market, like short rib rolled dumpling with brussels sprouts and roast duck with cabbage, pastrami jus and marble rye tuile. At brunch, try coconut brown butter pancakes or Tehachapi  grain porridge. Cocktails make winking references known to locals like Overcast ‘til 2 with gin and Ricard and the Palisades Park Swizzle with rum and amaro. 620 Santa Monica Blvd., Santa Monica

Century City Gets Whole Schmear With Wexler’s Deli
Part of Westfield Century City’s big update is the arrival of Wexler’s Deli, the nouveau-Jewish eatery that revolutionized the art of smoked fish and deli meats in L.A. Joining favorites from the downtown L.A. and Santa Monica locations like The O.G. (pastrami on rye), the corned beef reuben and bagels baked to chef-owner Micah Wexler’s specification are exclusive items like the chopped steak sandwich and a generous farmer’s market salad. For dessert, try a classic black-and-white cookie or chocolate babka. 10250 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles

Wine, Salumi Cheese and Chill at Good Measure
Atwater Village has become one of L.A.’s hottest neighborhoods, and its restaurant scene is heating up along with its real estate. Now Bar Covell and Augustine wine savant Matthew Kaner has opened Good Measure, his first solo venture, with a relaxed atmosphere, blessedly soft music and a versatile menu. Stick with cheese, charcuterie, olives, oysters and other vino-friendly snacks, or delve into main courses like sea bass with rosti or lamb belly with polenta. 3224 Glendale Blvd., Atwater Village

Winston Pies: Brentwood’s Flaky Flavors 
Just in time for holiday party planning, former attorney Brianna Abrams has opened Winston Pies, a gourmet pie shop along Brentwood’s buzzing San Vicente Boulevard in the old M Café space. The onetime ButterCrust Pies baker is making pies in traditional fall pumpkin and harvest apple varieties, along with creations like cranberry orange chess and chocolate cowgirl. Seasonal flavors will feature fresh fruits like orchard peach and nectarine, Blue Ridge blueberry and Dixie classic cherry. Most are also available gluten-free, and best of all, in addition to large 11” rounds, a range of sizes — like hand pies, 5” mini pies and petite pie bites — mean any size indulgence can be accommodated. 11678 San Vicente Blvd., Los Angeles
