SmithHouse Opens in Century City, With Angelo Sosa's Bone Marrow Burger

Last night, Curtis Nysmith's SmithHouse opened in the desolate nightlife zone of mall-bound zombies known as Century City. Besides the new zip code, what's new here is a menu by Top Chef vet and suddenly ubiquitous L.A. menu-designer Angelo Sosa. For those content to avoid Century City after dark, Sosa's SmithHouse burger, topped with bone marrow and a parmesan crust, as well as the presence of over 120 draft beers (a seriously staggering assortment), with that whole table-top brew system we met at City Tavern, just might sway you.

Meanwhile, cocktails have been crafted by a trio of killer barman, including seasonal selections from Roger Room's Jason Bran, Damien "Suck It San Francisco" Windsor, and Simon "When Achatz Attacks" Ford. The idea appears to be somewhere in between a beer lover's dream pub and an innovative grill concept, with plenty of suds and lots of attractive pig-out options (edamame burgers, spiced steak banh mi). Check out the full dinner and cocktail menus, below.

SmithHouse, 10351 Santa Monica Blvd. Century City.
