My Silver Lake operative Kathy sent in this dispatch from Cafe Bravo, which has finally opened on Hyperion next to Hard Times Pizza. Here's what she had to say:
Initial report: Clean, well-lighted, chicken kebob cooked to order--well seasoned and moist. Choice of sides, comes with basmati rice and pita ($7.04). You have to ask for garlic sauce....50 cents extra. Hummus/tabbouleh were tasty and fresh. Lots of locals already. Cheerful countermen rather than the cranky ladies of Zankou or Moishe's. Beef kabobs and schwarma looked good -- nice sizzling meat aroma. Great addition to the neighborhood -- parking lot a pain, however and already packed.
