A classic American bistro in the heart of Hollywood. Butchers and Barbers offers a causal and laid back dining experience, it’s more like being in a hip bar in central Manhattan than downtown Hollywood.

The atmosphere is friendly and busy with a hip crowd, good cocktails and lots of sharing plates. We joined in with the spirit and ordered the chicken for two. We were hoping the chicken would be brought out and carved at our table as a visual extravaganza.

However, the chicken was brought out as two separate portions so it wasn’t quite the sharing experience we had hoped for. This didn’t dampen our spirits, we had an enjoyable night and Butchers and Barbers is a must visit.

We began our evening with a couple of cocktails. I opted for the ‘Clara Bow’, which was mixed with Absolute Elyx Vodka, Thai Basil, Cucumber, St.Elder, Lemon and Strawberry Lambic. A smooth cocktail, very easy on the palate. My partner sampled the ‘Game Keeper’, equally as delicious and comprised of Bank Note Blended Scotch, Kronan Swedish Punsch, Don Ciccio and Figli Nocino, Blackstrap Bitters and Lemon Oils.

“An excellent evening of dining.”

After browsing their wine menu we settled on a bottle of Pinot Noir, Santa Maria Valley, Alta Maria Vineyards, 2012. A complex wine with a wide range of spices and herbs, one for the wine connoisseurs out there.

To begin we ordered Popped Corn, served with Roasted Garlic, Rosemary, Thyme Oil and Sugar. An interesting blend of flavours that worked perfectly. We also sampled a dish of Baby Kale and Arugula Salad, served with a Grain Mustard Dressing, Sourdough and Ricotta. The salad and fresh and crisp, and the dressing was superb. We also sampled a dish of Hamachi Crudo, served with Apple, Cucumber and Sunchoke.

For our main course we ordered their Roast Chicken for two, as mentioned this dish comes served as two separate dishes. It’s accompanied by Black Truffle, Foie Gras and Market Vegetables, I can honestly say this dish does not disappoint and was full of gorgeous flavours.

The combination of casual dining, great food and cocktails is a recipe for an excellent evening of dining. We’re sure you will not leave disappointed, we certainly didn’t.
