Son of a Gun is the best restaurant to hit L.A. in a long time.
The brand new seafood eatery from Animal chefs Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo has only been open four weeks, but it's already firing on all cylinders. On Sunday night, I hijacked the communal table with a coterie of friends (for a birthday celebration) and chowed down on some of the best food that I've tasted this year. As much as I adore Animal, they may have outdone themselves with this place.
While Son of a Gun, with its nautical themed interior, may be advertised as a seafood joint, what they're really serving up is thinly disguised comfort food -- lobster rolls with butter brioche and a sprinkling of potato chips, fried chicken sandwiches in the vein of dressed-up Chick-fil-A, a brandade dish that's essentially a bowl of salt cod infused mashed potatoes with a soft poached egg on top. This dish was hands down one of the favorites of the evening -- it had me licking the bowl by the end.

This is a must try dining destination. I loved my dinner so much, that I'm going back in a few days. And once they start lunch service, I'll be there even more...
