Snacks, wine in Atwater Village
Wine guru Matthew Kaner (co-owner of Bar Covell, Augustine and Dead or Alive Bar) has teamed with chef Mike Garber (formerly at the now-closed BLD and Ammo) to open Good Measure, in the former Ozu East Kitchen space in Atwater Village. And with Kaner behind the wine program, you know you’re in for a serious wine list. The dining menu mostly consists of “snacks” and “appetizers” to pair with all that wine, including crispy pork rillettes; mussels with grilled bread; charred padron peppers; and plenty of cheese and charcuterie. Garber is also making more substantial entrees, including lamb belly and polenta; and grilled bone-in pork chops, from San Francisco’s Flannery Beef, with peaches. Good Measure is now open for dinner and weekend brunch. Good Measure, 3224 Glendale Blvd., Los Angeles, www.goodmeasurela.com.
