Aron Habiger and Ashley Guzman are not only keeping it 100 at the North Left, they've upping the game. Every Thursday brings a farm-to-table night, where the two get items from the Santa Monica and SanTana's farmers' market and transform them into four-course masterpieces. They offer a wine-pairing men as well, but ustedes know me: I'm a true drunk. So I'm glad to report that not only does the North Left have new cocktails, they're all awesome--especially the Gin Fuego.
Gin, citrus, and harissa? HELL YA! It's tart, spicy, savory, and aromatic--the summer you want to spend. The garnish is a dried chile de árbol you should keep to enliven the dishes to come. So go every Thursday to the North Left, and tell Habiger and Guzman to go to 200!
