True Laurel

Opened in December, True Laurel is already a destination-worthy bar. Take the chef (David Barzelay) and bar director (Nicolas Torres) of two-Michelin-starred Lazy Bear, and open a sleek but casual bar serving food and cocktails, and you have what’s already one of the most exciting new bars in the country.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: The Top Dawg (rancio wine, fermented tonic and a rim of black sudachi and smoked salt) is one unique refresher, but the Golden Child is another Torres standout of mezcal, clarified golden beets, gentian wine reduction and black lime bitters.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: If you’re a Lazy Bear fan (or always wanted to go but couldn’t get in), some of Barzelay’s bites can be found here, like perfect hen of the woods mushrooms tempura fried in Kölsch beer and dipped in a sour cream and alliums dip.
