Charcoal, A Kansas City BBQ Smoking Up Silver Lake in January

It's replacing the former Lago D'argento on Hyperion

2014 had plenty of new barbecue places open, from Max City in Eagle Rock and Brick Smokehouse in Venice to Barrel & Ashes in Studio City. The trend isn't stopping soon, but instead of the typical Texas-style barbecue that's been happening around town, Charcoal is bringing the Kansas City-style to Silver Lake in the former Lago D'Argento space. The longtime confused space (which seemed to switch concepts every few years) is being transformed by chef Jeremy Zimmerman, with a debut slated for January along Hyperion.

The modern Kansas City 'cue will come on a dry-rub base, slow-smoked over hard woods, and then covered with a tomato and molasses based sauce. It's a definite change of pace from the Texas-heavy barbecue that tends to surface around Los Angeles. Along with smoked meats, expect a decent lineup of craft beers, and bourbon-heavy cocktails.

When it opens, Charcoal will be open from 4 p.m. to late, plus daily happy hour and Sunday brunch commencing at 10 a.m.
