The team behind LA’s lauded Bestia has gone and knocked it out of the park again, this time opening Bavel to major acclaim in the Arts District. The fare at Bavel
, which opened in April 2018, draws on the chefs’ backgrounds from Israel, Morocco, Turkey and Egypt. It seems only natural that the place is a semifinalist on the James Beard award nominee list for Best New Restaurant, as it’s garnered infinite praise from various media outlets and diners alike. Private Dining
: There’s no private room, but groups of 9-14 diners can be seated at large communal tables in the main dining room. The covered and heated patio is another great option for groups of up to 22 guests. For something private, buyouts are available during lunch hours and some dinner occasions.
