The sophomore hit from the same team as Bestia, Bavel offers contemporary takes on Middle Eastern fare in the heart of the Arts District. The airy dining room features exposed brick and an open kitchen, with cascading vines adding a touch of greenery to the warehouse-like space. At Bavel, Chefs Ori Menashe and Genevieve Gergis offer an expansive menu of hot and cold mezzes, a rotating selection of spreads and freshly baked flatbreads, plus larger meat and fish dishes designed for sharing, alongside inventive cocktails and a winelist focused on Mediterranean and California varietals. The heated, covered patio accommodates groups of up to 26 in a semi-private space, offering seclusion while maintaining the convivial spirit of the interior. Larger groups are welcome to inquire about partial and full buyouts of the main dining room.
