The new full-service Fellow opened among the fast casual territory of Westwood Village today. Chef Michael Bryant of Cliff’s Edge and The Churchill created a grown-up lunch menu with nods to his Southern roots with restaurant veterans and partners Philip Camino and Terry Tolba. And though Fellow’s delivery-only and catering service launched in February, the restaurant expanded to a full lunch menu today, with dinner hours by September.

There’s more than just salads and burgers. Bryant’s daytime menu includes black-eyed pea falafel and Virginia-style crab cakes, and a bowl filled with bamboo rice, edamame, roasted mushrooms, cashews, basil, and scallions. There’s a crispy chicken sandwich on a pretzel bun, a rock shrimp po’ boy, and vegetable dishes aplenty with grilled lemon dill cauliflower, and roasted baby carrots. There’s no full bar yet, but kombucha is on tap.

High ceilings and bright street view windows frame the room, with lounge seating towards the front. Camino and Tolba renovated the 4,680 square foot space, which seats 82 people. The historic 100-year-old building also housed one of LA’s most celebrated and old-school restaurants, The Moustache Cafe.

Camino and Tolba collaborated at The Hudson and former West Third gastropub, The Churchill. Camino is also a partner at Stout Burgers and Beers. Lunch is Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
