Unfortunately Speranza restaurant was closed when we drove by, but I stole a shot through the fence. The place is owned and run by Jens Hommert, an Austrian architect formerly with Rem Koohass/OMA, and his wife/partner Hu. Bestor says it's a major hangout for local architects and artists. It also has a pavilion done by the artist Jorge Pardo and modern furniture from the local shop Amsterdam Modern.  An Architect's Guide to Silver Lake by Jaime Gillin
