From the couple that brought you Bestia and Bavel comes this Middle Eastern eatery with art deco flourishes on an unassuming corner in East Hollywood. The focus here is on traditional, home-style cooking, with plenty of dips, flatbreads, and skewers that don’t require utensils. Large plates include an herbaceous Red Snapper Tagine with ginger, turmeric, serrano, and cilantro over coconut rice, and a Wood-Fire Shawarma with lamb, beef, and all the fixings. Inventive cocktails make this a drinking destination on its own, with notables like a Mezcal Sour with passionfruit, carrot, pineapple, and habanero, plus beer and wine. During the day, Saffy’s operates as a coffee shop with fresh-baked pastries, coffee, and tea.
