EDITORS TIPS

Look Good: There's no sign identifying the restaurant or its hours, save for a piece of 8-by-10 typing paper taped to the gate.

Where to Sit: Small groups in search of an away-from-the-rumpus space to eat and chat should request a table in the semiprivate loft.

Parking: No valet service is available. Look for street spaces along Abbot Kinney or around the block on Electric Avenue; there's also a small public lot off Palms.
