“Where should we eat?”
Funny how a simple question can strike such terror. The subtext is really “What’s the newest, coolest, hardest-to-get-into place?”
Here’s your answer: Falcon.
A 4,000-square-foot space that promises to be all of the above (for a hot second, anyway). No one’s willing to say when it officially opens, but ballpark it for this weekend or early next week. Brought to you by Mike Garrett and Tommy Stoilkovich (of Lounge 217, Voda, and Pearl Dragon), Falcon has an outdoor patio, a dining room with walls of zebra wood, a Micarta bar with faux-alpaca ottomans, a DJ booth, a 22-person private dining room, even an herb garden out back. (Can we doggie-bag some basil?)
Oh, and the food’s supposed to be pretty spectacular, too. Chef Matthew Dickson (Rockenwagner, Vida) offers homey dishes like beef rib-eye with parsley sauce and potatoes; a seared rack of pork with braised leeks and turnips; and peach cobbler. Plus, Falcon also bakes its own bread, cures its own olives, and even sun-dries its own tomatoes. So you can enjoy your meal while you savor your in-the-know status.
At least, that is, until the next newest, coolest, hardest-to-get-into place opens.
Falcon, 7213 Sunset Boulevard, three blocks west of La Brea (323-850-5350).
