West Third Street’s newest restaurant tenant is Bacari, the popular casual offering with locations in Glendale, Playa del Rey, and University Park. This time the team has taken over one of LA’s most charming spaces, a hideaway patio hotspot that used to be home to one of the city’s oldest Greek restaurants.

The former Sofi has been entirely overhauled thanks to Matt Winter of M Winter Design, emerging with a stylish modern Mediterranean vibe set off with plenty of greenery, low lights, rustic wooden details, and splashes of gold. Most of the seating is meant for the patio, though there is a low-slung interior space with rough off-white walls and exposed wood beams.

Bacari West Third’s food comes from Israeli-born chef Lior Hillel, weaving from dishes like lamb-stuffed eggplant to roast vegetables to pizzas to oxtail, with a surely-to-be-popular brunch available on weekends. Beer and wine is also on offer, with hopes to expand into a full bar sometime next year. In the meantime, look for weekday happy hours from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and again post-10 p.m.

Bacari officially opens along West Third Street on Monday, September 24, joining new names like Jaffa and Winston Pies along one of the city’s busiest dining stretches. Hours run from 5 p.m. to late daily, with weekend brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Bacari West Third. 8030 34 W. Third St., Los Angeles, CA.
