I have lived two blocks from Electric Owl for many years but visited for the first time just recently. It was so much fun (and so delicious)! Located on the tip of West Hollywood at the corner of Sunset and Gardner, Electric Owl is nestled in an old train station (and has a very cool clock on the outside that is the first thing you see as you approach). With three separate patios and indoor dining, this place has got you covered. Owner Ernesto Uchimura (hailed as Chef of the Year: The Comfort Master by Los Angeles Magazine) promises “a modern take on California cuisine and specialty cocktails created with house-made tonics and bitters.” I’m not much of a drinker so I didn’t take advantage of the bar … but the food … that I can tell you about!
The menu, updated daily, features three different appetizers (Roasted Shishito Peppers, Spicy Shrimp Skewers, Pink Hummus); three salads (Watermelon Feta, Marinated Beets, Simply Dressed Lettuce); a Fried Chicken Sandwich (all natural chicken, cucumber ranch, ranch herbs, butter bun) served Not Hot, Hot, or Diablo Hot; three different burgers (House Double, Impossible, Spicy Ahi Tuna), and my personal favorite — Creamy Mac ’n’ Cheese. Some of the best I’ve ever had! Electric Owl is now open for dine-in and take-out Tuesday through Saturday from 3:30pm – 10pm! Credit card transactions only, and hours may change so check before you go. But definitely go!
