Recently, great new restaurants have been hard to find on the Westside - especially near Abbot Kinney. But Yours Truly is an exception. Its menu might read like it was created using some sort of New Restaurant Algorithm - avocado hummus with salsa macha, Nashville hot shrimp - but the food’s pretty great. There are some things we liked a little less, like squid-ink pasta shells “carbonara” that could have used a lot more flavor, but overall, this is a place you need to check out if you’re looking for a new spot for an upscale date or business dinner on the Westside.
