Landscape worked with founders at Botanica to define their brand language and digital experience in advance of their opening. Wonderful to find that LA Magazine has named Botanica as one of the 10 Best New Restaurants of 2017.
Botanica Named Top 10 in LA
The sunlight-dappled patio at Botanica has served as backdrop for an untold number of fabulous Instagram posts. You could probably spend hours people-watching at the aspirational all-day restaurant and marketplace that Heather Sperling and Emily Fiffer opened in a remodeled Silver Lake liquor store, but better to focus on the vibrant, produce-driven artistry happening in the kitchen. Like that stylish party-throwing friend who also happens to be an amazing cook, the two food-writing veterans excel at creating dishes that are both effortless and craveable. Soft-roasted kuri squash, luxuriant in brown butter and fried sage, arrives boosted with a dollop of burrata and a nest of lemony chicories. Ground lamb kabobs seasoned with Aleppo pepper ballast a salad of sharp raw herbs, but it’s the perky sumac yogurt that steals the show. A slim percentage of us have the leisure time (or budget) to linger over an Aperol spritz and soft-scrambled eggs with caramelized leeks each morning, but at Botanica that lifestyle feels nearly within reach.
