Fellow is a beautiful restaurant owned by Philip Camino, a former entertainment executive turned restaurateur and art broker. He also runs the adjoining art gallery, The Galerie at Fellow.
The restaurant originally opened as a gastropub. But when the pandemic hit, Camino closed the pub, redecorated and completely re-envisioned the concept, reopening in 2021 as a far more upscale yet laid-back restaurant. He brought in a new chef, Chris Flint (NoMad, Eleven Madison Park, Maude), to oversee the kitchen. The food’s very good, as one might expect. But this martini from Fournier steals the show.
Fellow, 1071 Glendon Ave., Los Angeles, 310-208-1071
