Gourmet Grill Masters became famous in Los Angeles for its rotisserie-chicken truck. This is its first restaurant, one frequented by blue-collar stiffs and office drones alike, all lining up for that wonderful rotisserie bird, a full or half-order of free-range beauty. But Gourmet Grill Masters has also boldly ventured into further experimentations, with a menu that spans from the Mediterranean to the subcontinent, excelling at every step. The fowl also makes appearances as kebabs and tikka: more savory in the former, wonderfully spiced in the latter. It takes a different spin in the shawerma, shaved off into almost-translucent petals. Combo plates arrive on a flatbread that’s thicker than a pita, puffier and slightly fried—the better to soak up all the meat juices. Wraps are as fat as a wine bottle. Indian touches also include samosas and naan, while the Pakistani influence includes luscious seekh kebabs and Peshwari naan, an alluring version containing dried fruits and nuts.
