Jonathan Gold is the Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer for the LA Times. This week he reviews Birch, a stripped-down small-plates restaurant from chef Brendan Collins in the Cahuenga corridor of Hollywood.

What to order: the summer corn and truffle, sweetbreads with cauliflower and gnocchi, rabbit baklava, king salmon with asparagus, and the skillet toffee pudding.

Where is it? 1634 N Cahuenga Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90028, (323) 960-3369
