Executive chef and partner Greg Daniels of Haven Gastropub +Brewery is storming into the Fall season.
“Even though we live in Southern California, where the changing of the seasons is less pronounced than most places, some of the leaves still change colors and the temperatures do drop, and we look to foods that provide a sense of warmth and comfort.”
Some of Haven’s seasonal dishes are pumpkin gratin, curried goat stew, red pepper and walnut bisque, beef tongue poutine, and warm kale salad. Seasonal flatbread has toasted almonds, mission figs, arugula, brie, caramelized onions, and guanciale. Roasted cauliflower is made with toasted almonds, house-made harissa, pepper-raisin gastrique, and marjoram. For later this week when temperatures are dipping into the fifties around dinnertime, the red wine braised lamb shanks with mushroom polenta, parmesan, and jus sounds divine.
Haven carries beers on draught and 100 bottled craft beers, as well as 50 specialty single-malt whiskeys, scotches, and bourbons. They have 50 wines that they sell by the glass and for almost every dish on their menu, they suggest a beer or wine to go along with it—for those of us who are admirers of drink, but who are nonetheless ignorant of particulars, this is a welcomed deed.
Haven is open daily with a lunchtime pop-up, Burger Haven, open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome.
