eating: black market liquor bar

Over the last several months, Black Market Liquor Bar in Studio CIty has quickly become one of my favorite places to grab drinks and eats. It's a great place for a date, a great place to meet up with a group of friends, and on Friday and Saturday nights it buzzes with excitement. Oh, and the food and drinks are killer.

Usually when I'm there it's too dim to capture all the goodness, but this past weekend we stopped in while it was still light out, and I was able to get a few shots with my iphone.

There are staples on the menu, but other things change seasonally. I was sad to hear one of our favorite drinks can't be made right now because cumquots are no longer in season. Thankfully it was replaced with an equally delicious counterpart.

Here's what we enjoyed this weekend:

1) Red, Hot, and Blue

2) Basil Ray

3) Chicken Bao

4) Grilled Baby Octopus Salad

5) Himachi Tostada

6) Grilled corn

7) Peel & Eat Shrimp

8) Soft Shell Crab Po Boy
