Kismet brought Sarah Hymanson and Sara Kramer from NYC to LA, where they’ve forged a fledgling Middle Eastern empire. Its flagship is this Los Feliz storefront, clean, brightly lit and loud, with gleaming tables. Go for a sprawling assortment of mezze plates or, if you’re ambitious, the joint’s signature dish, rabbit, served with pickles, greens, flatbread and sauces. Kae Whalen’s wine list is natty by nature; wines like Bobinet’s chenin, Les Gruches, have a high-acid through line to penetrate all of the menu’s offerings.
