Speaking of Atwater Crossing...

cls | Nov 5, 2011 12:04 PM

Well it's likely no one was speaking of Atwater Crossing, it's a neighborhood a mile or so from me that I never even knew existed. Between Glendale and Fletcher, just south of San Fernando, but not accessible from San Fernando is a little neighborhood with two community theaters, a loft development, lots of industry looking offices, and a restaurant called Atwater Crossing that just started dinner service this week.

They have a Mediterranean menu with mostly flatbreads, a couple of sides (we had cous cows) and a "Kobe" burger on a flatbread bun. The space is huge with a stage, a large outdoor patio, two covered patios, two bars, and an indoor counter. Decently put together, although a bit uneven and a little sparse, I guess that's to be expected from what looks like a first venture in a large space.

We ate with a view of the wood burning oven and saw the freshly prepared flatbreads being made. A nice combination of flavors on everything we tried, although the two flatbreads and the cous cous all suffered from a bit too much. A little too much garlic, a little too tart, a bit too much dried spice.

Besides some minor adjustments that I think could be made to the food, the staff was great and accommodating, the place looks like a lot of fun later on, and we had a good meal with some good beer and wine.
