Brisket Texas toast with vodka mac and cheese… oh the foodie adventures I miss with Angela.
Roadhouse LA, is a fortress of smoked meats and whiskey from the Umami brain trust and barbecue prodigy Robbie Richter.
Here you’ll find all the necessary elements of a postcard-perfect roadside juke joint. Walls of reclaimed barn wood and tin. A giant haylift chandelier. Antique gas pump. Chicken coops.
Pick a couple stools at the aluminum-sided bar. Order tequila-amaro-ginger cocktails from a Honeycut guy, or just go for one of the dozens of whiskeys. Consider the place’s name and toast to Swayze.
It’s all a prelude to the creative, internationally influenced barbecue you’ll have on the balcony or, when it’s nice, over by the garage windows opening to Melrose. Think brisket with Cheetos-infused cheddar or a patty melt with burnt ends in the middle. And sides like that vodka-doused mac and cheese.
