The changes continue over at ~HI LO~. Opening Wednesday November 6th is a new 10-seat bar inside the dining room, plus 10 new cocktails from Michael Lazar and Saul Ranella (here’s the menu). An item of note: for the month of November, 100 percent of the proceeds from the Jalisco Heat cocktail will go to the Friends of Maverick Foundation, raising money for the neighbors displaced by the fire. Chef Robin Song has also launched a new menu, with additions like Duroc pork ribs (served both wet and dry), coal-roasted beet salad ($10), and winter squash cooked in the smoker’s firebox.
~LA URBANA~ has opened their annex bar, Garage Urbano, to handle spillover from the main bar, and has more of a hangout vibe (think folding chairs and table games like dominoes). There’s also a $5 honor bar with craft Mexican beers and agua de jamaica, or you can order cocktails from the main bar from servers in the garage as well. Open Thu-Sat 5pm-1am.
