Lollipop corn dogs at Eureka! Tasting Kitchen

Eureka’s most ambitious outpost yet just might be at Hawthorne Airport, where Paul Frederick, Justin Nedelman and Robert Suzuki’s gastropub is now neighbors with Space X. The dining room faces the tarmac of this private airport, and servers go by "flight attendant." Their Lollipop Corn Dogs appear as a bulbous quintet, where cross-sections of Polish sausage sport cornmeal coats that are sweetened with brown sugar and bronzed in canola oil. Burgers and gourmet salads have their place on the menu, too, as does Eureka's outstanding selection of craft beer.

Loved my Eureka experience, though the overall meal was a bit hit-and-miss. The place always succeeds when it comes to cocktails. Yes, they're pricey, but that's so typically L.A. that it doesn't even bother me anymore, especially when they're good. I had the Penicillin and can't remember what my friends had (one was a grapefruit and gin concoction and the other was literally smoke in a jar). It was everything I wanted from a cocktail, the perfect marriage of all my favorite flavors (whiskey and ginger). I also enjoyed the most delicious Brussel sprouts. They were crisp and sweet, in an Asian-inspired sauce. I will be going back just for those. On the flip side, I split the Fresno fig burger and Pearl Street Blues burger with my friend and neither of them impressed me. The bitter greens seemed to overwhelm the Fig and the blue cheese wasn't potent enough for me on the Pearl Street. In a town with so many great burger establishments, I expected much better offerings. Still, I can totally see adding this place to my local happy hour rotation.

The Fresno Fig Burger with Sweet Potato Fries from Eureka was a decent burger. A little overcooked but the flavor of the fig marmalade combined with the melted goat cheese was phenomenal! When I come back I'll make sure to order the burger medium as medium-well was a little too much for my taste.
