Father's Office • Santa Monica, CA

"This dish epitomizes the style of eating I love," says owner and chef Sang Yoon. "It's informal, easily shared and conducive to drinking and socializing because you just grab a skewer with your fingers." The grilled lamb and its luscious tapenade were inspired by Yoon's travels in southern Spain and North Africa.
