For today's "Here, There, and Everywhere" I'm keeping things local. So local, that it's just a hop, skip, and straight jump away on Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake. With a seafood-focused menu and an eclectically decorated interior straight out of Wes Anderson film set, comes Sawyer, a local eatery by
Beau Laughlin and partners Brett Cranston and Jay Milliken. The restaurant comes with unfinished charm - from the exposed brick wall, raw wood flooring throughout and an L-shaped bar covered in azure blue tile. Plus, there's a garden patio out back, adorned with rows of café lights of course - perfect for those upcoming warm LA nights.
Chef Alex McWilliams leads the culinary team, focusing on large format dishes and share plates alike, including a variety of raw seafood options and rethought staples like clam chowder and a house burger. You'll also find a weekend brunch, which my friend raves about, so there's that!
What I'd Wear:
While its plates scream upscale, I feel that Sawyer has the ambiance of a casual local haunt. And therefore, this feeling has greatly influenced what I'd opt to wear there. When I think casual and easy, I instantly think of our Folking About Dress. With its soft-to-the-touch linen material and utilitarian structure (hello pockets!), the dress is perfect for an intimate, low-key date. Pair it with the simple Emilia Necklace locket, a pair of black leather oxfords and the Tadesse bucket bag to pull together the simple, collected look. Plus, don't forget your jacket (this lovely Esby duster) in case it's chilly inside!
