As Eater has been hearing for nearly a year now, Karen and Quinn Hatfield are looking to kick around on La Brea a little bit longer with the arrival of their third venture, Odys + Penelope. Just up the street from their popular daytime spot The Sycamore Kitchen (and fresh on the heels of the demise of their eponymous high-end dinner destination), the Hatfields have plans to power the place with fire, thanks to a Brazilian-style churrasco, dual grills and adjacent smoker.
Early photos didn’t do the place justice, so here’s a slew of new looks to really showcase the beauty of the new space. Stacked wood and an open view into the grilling area — complete with almost half-a-dozen up close and personal seats — really drive home the classic, simple approach to fiery cooking, while the rest of the room dons a modern approach thanks to sleek wooden tables, low black booths and lots of bare brick.
As we saw yesterday, the menu will be a mix of small plates like charred squid and roasted beet salad, meant to complement the larger mains like grilled fish, a churrasco porchetta (what new restaurant isn’t doing porchetta right now?) and a housemade pappardelle. Of course, one should expect a wide array of sweets to match the savory, from goat milk custard brulee to a lemon snow copetta.
Odys + Penelope will be open daily for dinner next week, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. during the week, with extended hours on the weekends (closed Sundays, at least for now).
