Ray Lasher and Chef Raquel Jubran, who collaborated together at Lasher's in Belmont Heights, have reunited at Lasher's Kitchen. Featuring a menu of small plates, classic dishes with contemporary twists, and some favorite signature items from the original Lasher's (including the famed meatloaf, fried green tomatoes and creamy clam chowder), Lasher's Kitchen serves lunch and dinner plus brunch on weekends. The thoughtful wine and beer list, coupled with Ray's hospitality, have made this a popular dining destination since it's opening in 2017.
Located in a small building near the corner of 3rd and Alamitos is this all vegetarian and vegan dining destination. Meals are prepared using steam, hence the name, to keep nutrition in while allowing flavors out. There is no grill, fryer or microwave on the premises at this clean eating café. Produce is procured from local farmers, menus printed on banana paper, paper goods are recyclable, silverware is upcycled and vintage, and the food is as fresh as you can get without growing and plucking yourself.
Great Society Cider & Mead
Great Society Cider & Mead is a modern-day social house where fine food, craft cider and mead (an time-honored process where wine is created by fermenting honey) set the stage for conversations. Boasting the largest selection of craft cider and meads in SoCal, this is where you can quench your thirst with 20 draughts and more in bottles plus an extensive cider and mead list showcasing craft producers from nearly every corner of the world. Whet your palate with flavors and profiles ranging from sweet to sour, still to sparkling, barrel-aged to hopped, rare to near-impossible to find. Complementing the beverage offerings is a menu that fuses seasonal fare with unexpected spicing to create dishes that don’t just taste great, but pair well with whatever profile you choose. Try a signature burger with an unfiltered whiskey barrel-aged cider from Michigan, or an artisanal cheese plate with a tart, lightly sparkling Sidra from the Basque region of Spain. You'll never leave hungry or thirsty - that's a promise.
