After a quick turnaround, it seems that Little Tart is now operating inside the former Saint Martha strip mall space in Koreatown. An even more casual offshoot of the Fairfax Tart Restaurant, which is part of the Farmers Daughter hotel complex, Little Tart looks to be a quick spot to grab a drink and a bite in the neighborhood, or possibly before a show at the Wiltern nearby.
Much like fellow strip mall spot Southland Beer, Little Tart will carry a variety of craft drinking options at a reasonable price point, though oddly enough both wine and beer are only available by the can, apparently. There will also be food, of course, with nothing over $14. There are sausages, fries, fried chicken, and a variety of burgers available, as well as a pie of the week
for $7 flat. (Little Tart writes in to say that, despite the signage, the pie is actually only $4).
No word at the moment as to who’s doing the cooking inside. Meanwhile, former Saint Martha lead Erven has just announced his tenure at Fundamental LA, where he’ll be paring back his grander cooking for something more neighborhood-friendly out in Westwood. Little Tart is now soft open, doing evening-only hours from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. weeknights, and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
