Button Mash, the stylish new arcade bar that's been built out for over a month but awaiting its final checkpoint, officially opens tonight in Echo Park. With a full-on Starry Kitchen menu comprising crispy tofu balls, garlic noodles, and even a double cheeseburger for under $10, expect a full wave of early adopters at this colorful hot spot.
This also might be one of the most expansive Starry Kitchen menus in recent memory, with the benefit of a full kitchen (they never had the real deal when they were at California Plaza in Downtown). If you're there late at night, feast on the nachos, which come loaded up with minced curry coconut beef and fresno chili. There's even dessert, with almond tofu and brick toast as fine companions to a few rounds on the pinball machines.
The drink menu boasts a slew of great draft beer like Modern Times Lomaland Saison or Firestone Velvet Merkin, an ideal companion to the colder, rainier days ahead in Los Angeles (unless El Niño decides to play nice this year). Brews aren't the only option though, as Button Mash aims high with a swell by-the-glass wine list featuring $7 glasses of rose and even $10 flutes of sparkling wine.
Hours run 5 p.m. to midnight on weeknights, and until 2 a.m. on weekends.
