Messhall Kitchen has all the touchstones of a classic sleepaway camp: cabin-like décor, a menu full of comfort foods, and their logo, a cream-colored pine tree. However, the difference between this Los Feliz restaurant and the camp you formed your whole personality around from the age of 8 to 15 is the food. You’ll find childhood favorites like mac and cheese made with a sharp white Vermont cheddar and baby back ribs smothered in barbecue sauce. It’s pure nostalgia, served the way we like - present but not overpowering.

Food Rundown

Hot Wings Confit

Sweet and smoky. A great app, but a bit too much sweetness to make a meal of them.

Mac-n-Cheese

The best appetizer on the menu. Made with a sharp white Vermont Cheddar encased in shells. These are little bites of goodness.

Brussels Sprouts

Sure, at camp these would be the thing most likely to still be on your plate at the end of a meal. But with their perfect char and some added bacon, I’d bet even a kid might be able to give these a try.

Short Rib Poutine

The absolute lightest poutine I’ve ever tasted. The short ribs are so light and airy that they almost make you forget about the cheese and fries and gravy. How is that even possible?

Baby Backs

This dish is the standout of their hardwood grilled menu. A bit of a sweeter sauce than is generally our favorite, but the smoke from the wood gives it a nice contrast.
