Father’s Office has reopened in Downtown Los Angeles, more than 18 months after first closing at the start of the ongoing pandemic. The Sang Yoon restaurant, with locations in Culver City and Santa Monica, had been in the works for the Arts District for years before coming online in January 2020, just two short months before closing again.

Like the other, longer-running locations, this Arts District outpost is for the over-21 crowd only and comes with the same no-modifications, no-ketchup policies that Yoon has become famous for. The restaurant does offer more than just the famous Office Burger, though, with new options like a fried chicken sandwich and chorizo fritters to go along with all that craft beer and those baskets of fries. Expect dinner hours only to start, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, with an extension to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights (closed Sunday and Monday). Yoon’s finer dining Lukshon in Culver City remains closed for the time being.
