My husband and I went to Bin 8945 on Santa Monica & Robertson and thought it was great! We sat at the bar and the bartender, Damian, was more knowledable than most servers we encounter. Every dish we had was good, which is rare in LA. We wanted to try a few different wines, so he split the glasses in 2 for us so we could both try them. Most bartenders don't want the extra work. The place was packed (after write-ups last Wed & Thurs in the LA Times).
