Looking for a place like Momofuku Saam Bar in Los Angeles
Having moved here from NYC in the last year or so, I am missing the restaurants desperately and my birthday is coming up next month. I was hoping for a spot that could be a casual place for a bunch of friends to share lots of amazing simple plates like you would find at a David Chang restaurant. Also, a killer cheese plate with options that aren't the norm is a must. If anyone out there has been to Casselulla in NYC, that's what I'm looking for. I was hoping for somewhere in Hollywood, but anywhere in the Los Angeles area would be great.
Not so simple but Bistro LQ offers lots of interesting plates, many in half portions, and has a terrific cheese cart with some unusual accompaniments. Other good options would include AOC, Bazaar (also far from simple but fun) and Cube.

hungry cat maybe? i believe they do a cheese plate. i've always thought it to be one of the more "nyc" feeling restaurants in town.
