The Insider's Guide to Roadhouse LA's Global BarbecueBy Lesley Balla | February 3, 2014 By Lesley Balla | February 3, 2014
Chef Robbie Richter isn't joking around when it comes to meat, especially the whole hog's heads he serves at Roadhouse LA, the new restaurant at the Hollywood Improv. The barbecue king partnered with Adam Fleischman from the Umami Group, hauled his grilling skills to LA from New York - where he was smokin' at joints like Hill Country and Fatty Cue - and opened this globally inspired barbecue spot as the house restaurant for the comedy club. Think: barbecue that was born in America jet-setting through Southeast Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Roadhouse soft opens this week with a full debut set for Thursday, February 6. It'll be dinner-only for now, with lunch coming soon. Here's what you need to know before you go.
