Local and Thirsty Crow Bar

Doesn’t that just look mouth-watering?

The Thirsty Crow is an old timey bar on West Sunset Blvd. The inside is dark lights and aged wood with barrels and character in ever corner. Their mascot is a cartoony crow that you can find here and there in nooks and crannies.

The most unique part of the setup is the food service. Right next door is a small crêpe restaurant called “Local.” There isn’t much to it, but the menu offers delectable options besides crêpes. There are also wraps and salads and burgers. Once you have ordered and paid, you get a number and head back over to the bar. Then you get to sip at your drink while waiting for your food to be delivered.

I ordered the Albóndigas Burger with spicy fries. This was exactly what I’d been craving in a burger for ages. It was moist, bursting with delicate flavors, and a delightful texture. The fries were crisp and had the slightest hint of heat. It was such a delightful meal.

To accompany the meal, I ordered a Sloe Gin and Tonic. I had no idea what Sloe Gin was, but cherry flavoured gin was not what I was expecting at all. The drink was quite nice though! Almost too sweet, but refreshing all the same. And at the bottom? Two black cherries!

Overall, I found this place quite fun and charming. If I were living in LA it would be one of my go-to places.
