Coach & Horses Reborn as The Pikey w/ Spotted Pig Chef

New, 23 comments

It has been almost two years since Eater announced the shutter of Ye Coach & Horses, Los Angeles' beloved 70+ year-old dive bar on Sunset Blvd forced to ends its run because of an increase in rent. Early speculation suggested that Jared Meisler and Sean MacPherson (Il Covo, Roger Room) planned to reinvent the space, and last month Eater heard that the venue was set to reopen in April.

On Friday came word that the reincarnation of Ye Coach & Horses was nearly complete and last night Meisler and MacPherson soft opened doors to The Pikey, Sunset's new British-themed restaurant and bar cheffed by Ralph Johnson, former executive chef at NYC's The Spotted Pig. And as far as accolades, twice during his tenure The Spotted Pig was awarded one Michelin star.

A concise menu is in place divided into "Bar Snacks," "Small Plates," Large Plates," "Sides," and "Desserts," with the most expensive dish on the menu, grilled flat iron steak with creamed spinach, coming in at $27. Potted chicken liver, crispy pig's ear salad with young kale and mustard, and Mary's vinegar chicken with thrice cooked chips all make an appearance.

A full bar is certainly in place and specialty cocktails created by Damian Windsor from The Roger Room (most cost $14) include The Sloane Ranger (Stoli Vanilla Vodka, crushed strawberries, Champagne), The Stanley (Starr African Rum, Pimm's No.1, lemon juice) and Laddie Dill (Svedka Vodka, crushed cucumber, dill, lime, salt, pepper).

The Pikey is soft open for the next week, until April 15, at which point the restaurant will debut to the public. Hours of operation run daily from 6PM-2AM, food served all night.
