Atwater Crossing Kitchen is quintessential LA. Future restaurateurs should take note because an outdoor restaurant concept like ATX is exactly what LA is lacking. My boyfriend and I had lunch at ATX over the weekend, and considering it is located adjacent to railroad tracks (hence, the name), we were pleasantly surprised at the sleek but comforting architecture and laid-back atmosphere. The communal tables, friendly staff, and easy-going mood was perfect for a Sunday lunch, and the food wasn't bad either. The flatbreads on the menu were very appealing, especially the Manchego-Jamón. But we gave the Zaatar a shot and surprisingly, my boyfriend, who is a harsh critic of Lebanese food, approved.
