Opening today just steps from Sunset Junction, George Abou-Daoud (The Bowery, Delancey, Mission Cantina) is launching his first venture into the charming part of Silver Lake with Bowery Bungalow, which takes over a former Thai restaurant along Santa Monica Blvd. With his typical infusion of Middle Eastern flavors, the farm-to-table cottage belies the rustic fare Abou-Daoud has planned for the plate.

Inside, find plenty of old-time materials and furniture, with the plush banquettes placed at just the right hue of light blue. The tasteful interior will host dishes like chicken musakhan with Yorkshire pudding or "shishkatori," a playful blend of kabobs and yakitori. Also consider slow-cooked lamb with Moroccan spices or roasted cauliflower with nuts and Egyptian spices. To finish, try the cardamom rice pudding, laced with persimmon and local honey. Open daily from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
