The superior nibbles and libations at Freddy Smalls make for a destination-worthy gastropub. Located in West LA, Freddy’s serves superior small plates and beautifully crafted cocktails. Its low-key, welcoming vibe and décor are reminiscent of a bar in NYC. They serve what just might be the best Brussels sprouts in LA – halved and fried, their flavor is balanced with an apple cider glaze and a sprinkling of goat cheese. Another must-try is their Buffalo deviled eggs. At least as original and noteworthy as the sprouts, and with a tip of the hat to the humble Buffalo chicken wing, these eggs, enhanced with Point Reyes blue cheese, lounge in a wee bed of house-made hot sauce, and are speared with a heavenly bit of chicken skin. Other enjoyable “smalls”: chicken liver mousse on toast with caper berry marmalade, steamed Manila clams, and the Caesar-type salad composed of golden beets, gem lettuce, and white anchovies -- a welcome variation on the classic. If you’re looking for something a bit more hearty and wintry, the slow-roasted chicken panzanella (made with half a Mary’s chicken) in garden chimichurri, ricotta, apricot, and courgettes is highly satisfying. The well-edited cocktail list includes the excellent Buffalo Cup (bourbon, yellow chartreuse, clover honey, bitters, and lemongrass), the King’s Garden (a refreshing concoction of Scotch, Genever, lemon, cucumber, micro herbs and cane sugar), and the Porco Rosso (cognac, Aperol, dry vermouth, habanero, and grapefruit essence). For dessert, try the Belgian waffle topped with bacon butter and roasted strawberries.
