An ambitious Middle Eastern restaurant in East Hollywood.
Kismet’s long, wood-paneled dining room is the bricks-and-mortar outgrowth of Madcapra; the lauded Central Market falafel joint that chefs Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson established after first relocating from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 2013. Kismet (the name means destiny) is a more ambitious venture: an all-day, sit-down restaurant which blends traditional Middle Eastern dishes with locally produced Californian staples. Located at the easternmost end of Hollywood Boulevard, the restaurant emphasizes vegetable-focused fusion food such as broccoli toasts with labneh, Persian frittatas with swiss chard and barberries, and kabocha squash with Aleppo peppers.
