Entwistle Farms, A Definite Must-Eat!
The cold hard facts are these: people wanna eat at quality, unique restaurants with great food and even greater ambiance. They want to leave said quality establishments with a smile on their face and a few dollars left in their pockets. They want to be able to return at a later date and end up getting the same damn-good experience like the last time they were there.
Enter Entwistle Farms.
Hitting the pavement running just this week, Entwistle Farms is run by none other than Tom Entwistle -- a New York chef whose dreams of opening shop here in Los Angeles were finally realized in Downtown Los Angeles. With unique food creations and the friendliest staff around, getting into Entwistle Farms is already becoming a tough hurdle -- but with a little bit of patience and a lot of persistence, you too can enjoy Entwistle's amazing culinary delights.
Entwistle, himself, an Italian at heart has fashioned his menu around just that -- his unique Italian creations. Mixing traditional elements like pasta and meats with his unique and fruity hot and cold sauces (can you say melon, strawberry and legume?), Entwistle Farms offers up a wide array of pasta dishes, meat dishes, soups, salads and fishy creations from 5:30pm to 1:00am every evening.
But come the morning, Entwistle Farms embraces the farm culture -- an environment that Entwistle's family immersed him in while living the summer months in Chiusi, Italy. Entwistle has taken some of his favorite dishes and provided them to you, the consumer, starting every day at 7:30am until 3:30pm (they're closed between 3:30pm and 5:30pm to gear up for the dinner rush). Some of the great breakfast fare includes his Chiusi Egg Marmalade (three eggs, bits of chopped up marinated bread and a sweet marmalade sauce), Hot Bread & Egg Pudding (like a soup, but for breakfast) and his trademark Entwistle Scramble (sweet & sour salsa mixed in with eggs, sausage, peppers and croissant flakes).
On the whole, Entwistle Farms is indeed the next best place for your dining experience. Of course, the fact that it's out of the way (Downtown L.A.) and relatively unknown may cause some to scoff at the travel time and the prices (two can eat dinner for about $85.00) -- but when your taste buds have experienced all that is Entwistle, we here at LAist think you'll be happy with the results.
