The duo behind the Hollywood cocktail lounge, Spare Room, opened the Winsome in early 2016 on the ground floor of the towering Elysian building in Echo Park. The kitchen is run by chef Jeremy Strubel (formerly of Rustic Canyon) and pastry chef Leslie Mialma (formerly of République). The interior, which is a fun, sophisticated play on traditional diner aesthetic, was done by Wendy Haworth Design (who created the look of Gracias Madre and Cafe Gratitude, among others). Right now, they’re serving California fare for breakfast, brunch, and lunch—with dinner to come.
