Ate here with my wife on a trip to LA. Place was packed on a Monday night. Seemed to be the cool place to be.
Menu has focus on locally-sourced products. The menu, and the waiter, for that matter, were a bit pretentious. Like in that "I'm too cool for you" hipster-y way. Dude, I grew up in a rural area, so we called "local-sourced" food just plain "food". But, the food was very good. Won't bother mentioning specifics, since the menu changes daily, but everything we had was tasty, surprising (in a good way), presented in a very aesthetic manner and portion sizes were appropriate--not too large nor small. Service was excellent!
As it turned out, this was the first of a number of meals out in the SoCal area. Many of the restaurants had similar style menus (ie house-made charcuterie, local/artisanal cheese plate, kale salad, etc.)--it was like these places took more-or-less the same menu, which made me wonder who was first w/ this trend. Rustic Canyon was probably the best of these similarly menu-ed places.
But, the food was good and we enjoyed ourselves.
