It’s easy to make fun of Silver Lake. There are more doulas here than anywhere else in the country, and if you wanted to buy a homemade quilt woven with rare goat hair, we suspect there’s no place better place to get it. And while it seems like every great restaurant in the past 12 months has opened in this part of town, Botanica is absolute peak Silver Lake.
Sitting in the big and bright space on Silver Lake Blvd., you feel like you’re inside a very well curated social media feed. The walls are painted pink, there’s a market up front with perfectly styled arrangements of vegetables and expensive yogurt, and the string light-covered patio is ready for your girls’ night out needs. But aside from all the photo opportunities, Botanica is also a quality neighborhood restaurant – albeit one with hibiscus strawberry orange ginger spritzers, an advanced wine list, and giant piles of fresh greens on every plate.
