Middle Eastern Flavor with California Freshness at Kismet
There are no set meal hours at Kismet—only "daytime," "dinner," and "snack time." Instead, diners come in all day between 10 a.m. and 11 p.m. for the family-style Middle Eastern food, which has ingredients sourced from local farmers whenever possible. Must-try staples include flaky bread with labneh, lemon, and honey; the lemony chicken and pine nut pie; and the cucumber and labneh salad. Snack time, which runs between 3 and 5 p.m., is the unofficial happy hour, with $5 beers, $10 glasses of wine, and small plates of olives and other bite-sized edibles for under $15. If you don't want to wait in line, especially around peak dinner hours, reservations are a must—plan early, though, because this is a place that books up weeks in advance.
