With an outpost in Atwater Village and another in Beverly Hills, Momed has both sides of LA covered. The focus here is on the zesty, refreshing North African and Mediterranean soups, salads, mezze, and mains that are so well suited to the soupy Los Angeles heat. We’re partial to the Beverly Hills location—super casual with small tables running the length of the deli-style bar—which is an ideal spot for a healthy lunch that doesn’t break the bank. The chicken souvlaki (a Greek word for anything grilled on a skewer) is doused in a citrusy sumac vinaigrette with tomatoes, a scattering of herbs, and some lavash to mop up the chickpea aioli.
