Garrett is an incredible waiter/bartender. Very attentive, down to Earth. It was like having a friend host a fancy dinner party.

Even though it was a very busy night, and service was a bit slower than we would have liked, our waitress kept us informed and never looked like she didn't have it together. As the back area got more crowded, it looked like the owner and a couple other employees came out to help the one waitress who was back there. All in all, they handled the crowd quite well

the foundry is a fun place, led by superchef eric greenspan, whose enthusiasm permeates the atmosphere. his re-imagining of the grilled-cheese sandwich ( toasted raisin-walnut bread, taleggio cheese and tender short ribs) makes for a truly unique dish, and the gnocchi and the potato. soup (with a perfect egg crucially floating thereon) were outstanding. the spot's friendly feeling makes happy conversation a staple.

From Our Editors

Executive Chef Eric Greenspan—who cut his teeth at restaurants such as Patina and Meson G—instills traditional American cuisine with a modern flair at The Foundry on Melrose, so named for its use of industrial designs to accent its art-deco décor. Featured in publications such as LA Weekly, the constantly evolving menu melds upscale dishes such as shellfish chowder with whimsical renditions of diner classics, including the signature burger stuffed between Hawaiian bread and onion-ring hula skirts. Often echoing with live music, the lavish dining room culls elements from the Machine Age to warm its space with antique light fixtures, sconces crafted from vintage heat registers, and colorful artwork. Outdoors, heat lamps protect diners from obnoxiously loud snowmen, and wicker chairs juxtapose the classic look of candles and white linens.
