It's rare to see the dining room of this classy Westside staple empty. Local professionals out for casual business lunches dominate the place by day, while at dinnertime friends gather around the bar for cocktails and couples make a beeline for the cozy tables. Much of Bocado's reputation is wrapped up in its burger—two patties covered in cheese and housemade pickles—widely thought of as the city's best. Order a side of the garlic herbed fries. The lunch menu's roasted
cauliflower sandwich packs a punch with roasted eggplant and jalapeño mayo. At dinner lamb Bolognese accompanies hand-cut pappardelle, ricotta, mint, and chilies.
