Reader Carp4Ever sent me a tip that the liquor license owned by recently-closed Sly’s Restaurant at 686 Linden Avenue in Carpinteria is being transferred to Little Dom’s Seafood for use at the same address. I confirmed this with a search of the ABC license query system. This appears to be a second location for owner Warner Ebbink who operates Little Dom’s in Los Feliz at 2128 Hillhurst Avenue in Los Angeles.
Ebbink is a native Angeleno whose passion for restaurants extends beyond cuisine into architectural restoration. Ebbink and chef Brandon Boudet opened Hollywood’s 101 Coffee Shop in 2001. In 2004, Boudet and Ebbink, both proud of their Italian heritage, purchased the historic Dominick’s in West Hollywood, originally established in 1948. They went on to establish Little Dom’s in Los Feliz. Boudet was born and raised in New Orleans, influenced by Louisiana and Italian cooking. He has refined his skills in simple Italian cuisine with California market influence.
The menu at Little Dom’s in the Los Feliz features fresh Italian-American fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Popular dishes include Homemade Linguine Carbonara, Crescenza and Burrata Agnolotti and Meatballs. For Breakfast they offer Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes, Scrambled Egg Bruschetta or Steak and Eggs with a Fennel Pollen Hollandaise sauce. Other favorite dishes include wood-oven Pizzas, the Meatball & Mozzarella Sandwich and Cedar Plank Salmon. Visit littledoms.com.
