Long Days Mean Happier Hours
Springing forward may suck for mornings but on the (literal) bright side, more sunlight on the pre-sunset side paves the way for bustling happy hours. Luckily, Los Angeles’ prime restaurants are heeding the call of the wild with daring new offerings.
It seems almost impossible that Petit Trois, Ludo Lefebvre’s happening French haunt, offers $9 steak tartare frites from 3-6pm on weekdays, but there it is. Not to mention: $8 seasonal cocktails like the Afternoon Reviver, garnished with dehydrated Meyer Lemon, and a Dandelion Gin and Tonic. At Eagle Rock’s glamorous new scene stealer, Red Herring, an English Pea salad tossed with goat cheese costs a mere $5 so why not wash it down with The Paramour, a refreshing cava libation laced with orange and Aperitivo Cappelletti? Gwen in West Hollywood is featuring a new champagne cocktail with guava and ginger and a tequila/port combo with pineapple and elderflower. The Pikey’s even paying a tribute to Prince with its new Raspberry Beret: part rum, part lime, part raspberry, part Coco-lada, and all soul.
