If you love food you have most likely heard of animal. The minimally designed and decorated restaurant opened to great acclaim in 2008 by Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo. It has received constant accolades since its 2008 debut including praises from multiple prestigious publications as well as appearing on The Layover with Anthony Bourdain. We found animal to live up to all of its press and hype providing creative, unconventional, and wonderfully tasty cuisine. Not to mention that they have a great non-Califonia-centric wine list. The menu reads like something out of a Louis L’Amour Wild West novel but with a refined and approachable sensibility. It is constantly changing and features many stars such as crab, barbequed octopus, rabbit, and bone marrow to name a few. animal is a buzz with creative energy, great beverages, wonderful food and atmosphere. animal is out right fantastic, but in the famous words of LaVar Burton ” But you don’t have to take my word for it,” try it for yourself.
