About

Nestled in the heart of Silverlake at Sunset Junction, Bowery Bungalow is a charming cottage with indoor & outdoor seating, and a bar housing craft beer and select wine.

Bowery Bungalow’s menu is a modern homage to the cuisine of the Levantine, North Africa, Anatolia & the Mediterranean.

It is the first of this concept to enter into the culinary playground of Los Angeles. George Abou- Daoud's creative menu revolves around farm-to-table modern Mideast cuisine focused on the rich traditional flavors of the region and its environs.

Loved this place! Every item we ordered was excellent and unique, a California twist to middle eastern food, so healthy and tasty. The ambiance was superb, super cute outdoor patio, comfy lounge area and booth/table seating in a small converted CA bungalow dropped in Morocco. A new favorite.

We arrived at 9:20 on a Sunday night a little concerned that their dinner service would be ending at 9:45, but the waitstaff was really friendly and helpful in making sure we got our food order in while not making us feel rushed. Excellent food that's full of unique, intense flavors. The four of us got the coffee rubbed ribs, the fried branzino, slow cooked lamb, turmeric fried rice, babaganoush, and potatoes in yogurt feta cream.

Beyond rude staff from the second you enter. Service at Denny's is better. Average food at best. One acceptable appetizer, bruschetta. DO NOT ORDER THE RIBS!! The noise level is defining.
Don't waste your time or money at Bowery Bungalow!!

A local gem! Longtime LA restaurateur George Abou-Daoud has nailed it, with an incredibly creative and delicious menu of truly unique dishes reflecting his and the area's rich cultural heritage, in a wonderfully home-style setting. Great value, too, with a very reasonably priced wine list, and the service excels as well. My wife and I went there with another couple that had never gone and all four of us can't wait to return.

We were celebrating a milestone. Six people, three meat eaters, one vegetarian, two pescatarians. Plenty for everyone. The fish eaters LOVED the fish that came in a little glass jar. The cauliflower was fantastic and the spicy potatoes were delicious. Our waiter, Tim, was the best. A really wonderful evening.

What a little gem. Drive by this restaurant almost everyday and always wanted to try it. Finally, decided to go with friends before going to a show. From the time you walk in you are met with pure warmth. The host and servers were very friendly and knowledgable. Simply quaint with an eclectic flair. The outdoor patio was a surprise since it made you forgot that you were in bustling Silver Lake. The food was absolutely wonderful and flavorful. Everything we had was exceptional. The couscous was huge and could be shared with at least six people. The beef cheek was so tender, it melted in your mouth. The saffron Mussels fantastic. Will I be back? Most definitely.

The food and service were exceptional! The only drawback was the noise level. Hard to have conversation between the four of us...often needed to ask someone to repeat what they said or to speak up.

Our first visit to the little gem around the corner from our house- The blue crab poached eggs were superb and we especially enjoyed the goats cheese French toast. Our server was very helpful and friendly and we loved the eclectic ambiance and music playing. Will be retuning, for sure.

Yum! I had given up thinking I could get a really good glass of wine with my food in Sunset Junction until I FINALLY made it to Bowery this week. The food was solid (had a tasty though slightly cloying beef cheek gnocchi dish) and a DELICIOUS lamb "sandwich". Baba ganoush was tasty and made more interesting with a refreshingly piquant/spicy-ish addition of shishito peppers (NOM!). Bartender was super friendly, knew the menu items, and let us taste a few wines. We got one sip of a very tasty Cab they'd run out of (Sparkman from Columbia Valley) and tasted an interesting Pinot Noir (La Follette). A Malbec was good w/ the beef tongue, and a bordeaux was big and yummy with the lamb sando. WILL GO BACK.

The bad-Table was not ready for about 10 minutes beyond our reservation time, and booth seats were super uncomfy. The good-service was great. Food was good, interesting with some local ingredients. Funky atmosphere. Only wine and beer, not a full bar. Family style ordering. Cool Silver Lake spot.

Loved the ambience. Very cute. The blue crab benedict was divine. The salad that came with it had a weird dressing on it, though. Too sour/salty for me.

Bowery Bungalow is one of my favorite restaurants in Silverlake. I am a BIG Mediterranean food lover, and I can say, without hesitation, that their baba ganoush is the best I have had anywhere. I adore their fried cauliflower with dukkah so much that I have attempted to replicate it at home. Service is great, and you will get a lovely lentil soup starter just for sitting down. Big props to this small neighborhood gem of a restaurant!
