Living in Silverlake, I don't usually venture out too far beyond my own neighborhood for dinner. But when a dear friend suggested Black Market Liquor in Studio City, I jumped at the chance to go outside my bubble. The cavern-like restaurant is currently under construction on the outside, but the inside is just as lovely as ever. We ordered bunch of small plates to share, a glass of wine, and had some wonderful conversation. The meal's highlights were the kimchi chicken wings and the street corn, which comes with a chipotle aioli I'm still dreaming of.
