Winsome is a beautiful, beloved Echo Park restaurant owned by partners Marc Rose and Med Abrous (who also own The Spare Room and Genghis Cohen). The newish boite features incredible custom tiles—from the deep green Heath Ceramics on the coffee bar to the white Fireclay Tiles on the lunch counter to the Tony Brown-created hand-tooled tiles for tables on the outdoor patio. And the restaurant’s menu is just as custom and crowd-pleasing with dishes like the shaved cauliflower salad, which is a must-order.
“The shaved cauliflower salad’s big bold flavors—from the nutritional yeast, lime, and Parmesan—combine with the crunch of the cauliflower and Lola Rosa to make this a really special dish,” says Abrous. “It has a clean, bright flavor that pops with every bite.” This versatile menu item is an all day offering, and it’s great for sharing or enjoying solo. “I think it's a hit because it's a creative way of serving a fresh salad that features serious flavor and seasoning.” And it’s pretty easy to replicate at home.
