Anyone who lives near West Hollywood and drinks natural wine (see: me) knows you generally have to leave the neighborhood to buy it. The opening of Fellow Traveler in November changed that in a big way. Run by sommelier Rick Arlene (formerly of Auburn), the wines at Fellow Traveler are fresh, funky, and, frankly, unlike anything you can get for miles. That said, the food might be even better. On paper, Fellow Traveler’s menu reads mostly like snacks you’d eat while drinking wine (and to be sure, that is the goal here), but the fact is, this is food worthy of its own order. The charcuterie board is balanced and interesting, I could drink the truffle porcini dip from a Yeti, and the smoked paprika aioli burger is easily one of the best new burgers in town.
