A serious British invasion is hitting Echo Park thanks to The Lost Knight, the old school public house that took over the old Barragan's space on Sunset. Pending a few final permits and approvals, the British pub is just about ready to swing its doors open to Anglophiles and craft beer lovers alike.
The Lost Knight team includes owner Paul Moore of Potential Entertainment and Operations Director Mary Thompson, former GM and sommelier of Saint Martha, who wanted to build an approachable, unpretentious space with a litmus test of authenticity.
The menu is a celebration of no-nonsense pub fare, including patés, pies, sausages, and burgers. There will be the requisite fish and chips, with hand-cut fries and a Craftsman 1903 beer batter, and most notably, Stargazy Pie. The 16th century Cornish fish pie will feature a whole Idaho trout with roasted parsnip puree cooked in puff pastry, and will be adorned in the traditional manner with the trout's head.
The interior was designed to create an inviting pub feel. With décor sourced from antique shops throughout Britain and an expansive tap room and lounge bar, The Lost Knight is intended to be a place to socialize in a pleasantly raucous environment. Throw back a few British brews from small batch breweries like MacLeod, Craftsman, and Noble Aleworks, or cocktails made with London Dry and Old Tom gins, and you'll be sure to have quite the convivial evening.
