|Late night still means a full menu at Nightingale, now open on Lyndale|
After a successful and very hush-hush soft opening on Monday evening, Nightingale, a new late-night spot in Whittier focused on drinks and small plates, officially opened its doors to the public at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Here's a sneak peek at what's on the menu:
In addition to a small but respectable beer and wine program, the manageable menu is divided into small plates, salads, snacks, and bruschetta.
Snacks include spicy fried chickpeas, and a pickle plate with beets, green beans, and carrots. Bruschetta options rotate regularly, but Nightingale is starting out with a grilled mushroom version and one with smoked crab.
In the salad department, Nightingale has a grilled Caesar with anchovies and a seasonally inspired market salad with greens, figs, fennel, dry jack cheese, and walnut dressing. Small plates offer plenty to mix and match, such as deviled eggs, Brussels sprouts with bacon, steak tartare with sunchokes, and seared scallops with grapes and almond.
This menu is served daily from 4 p.m. until 1 a.m., and owners Carrie McCabe-Johnston and Jasha Johnston plan to start brunch service this Sunday at 10 a.m.
