Similar to S.D.'s "The Lion's Share" in L.A.?...

Looking for a place here in L.A. that has a focus on Exotic Game without being too high-end (ie: Saddle Peak Lodge).

    Animal or Bestia.

    (And both are better than Lion's Share)

      I was going to recommend Animal, but I actually don't see that much exotic game on their menu, or on Bestia's for that matter. There's maybe "exotic" parts of ununusual animals (lamb hearts).

      There's lots of places serving sausages made with various exotic game (Wurstkuche, District 13, etc.) but nothing like kangaroo tartare on Lion's Share's menu: http://lionssharesd.com//menu/eats/.

        That's what I was getting at. We have lots of Offal-centric menus here in town, but (outside of K-Town or SGV) very little in the way of unusual Game Menus.

        Was actually hoping Ipsedixit might have some insight as he's a frequent presence on the SD boards...

          Phong Dinh, which was SE/Vietnamese, had a very game-centric, exotic meat focused menu. Alas, it shuttered.
