Chefs Roxana Jullapat and Daniel Mattern have enough shared experience to know precisely the kind of restaurant they want to call home. Since May, the L.A. culinary duo (Campanile, Lucques, A.O.C., Cooks County) has put down roots at Friends & Family, an East Hollywood space that’s all about getting back to basics—especially for Jullapat, whose dream was to helm a full-service bakery, marketplace and seasonally driven restaurant where she could revisit recipes she’s loved for years, and be closer to where she and Mattern live in Silver Lake. Plus, true to the name: “All my friends live in this area,” she says. 5150 Hollywood Blvd., L.A., 323-668-2000; friendsandfamilyla.com.
