Son's Addition—a new casual eatery and bar envisioned by Nick Cobarruvias and Anna Sager Cobarruvias—is poised to open on October 24th at 2990 24th St. (at Harrison) in the former Usulutan Restaurant space.

Cobarruvias, formerly chef de cuisine at Marlowe, will take the helm in the kitchen as co-owner and executive chef, while Sager Cobarruvias will serve as co-owner and the restaurant's general manager. Outside of their work partnership, they're also married to each other.

“We met working in the industry and have always worked for other people. We’re excited to build something together. It’s truly a family venture," Cobarruvias said.

The concept is described as "eclectic and hyper-seasonal," which means a revolving menu with shareable items like bacon-kimchee deviled eggs, poached chicken with coconut rice and fermented soybean salsa, and more.

For entrees, featured items include a five-spice braised lamb shank with goat cheese polenta and pan-roasted black cod with celery root and kimchee romesco. 

The duo plan to add brunch service once the spot is up and running, with signature cocktails and house-made kombucha to round things out. Outdoor seating for up to 24 guests is also in the works.

Sommelier Ryan Hess, owner of Vinotéque On Melrose in Los Angeles, will serve as the restaurant's beverage director. Wine will be served by the glass or the bottle as well as a six local brews on draft, like Standard Deviant and Barebottle Brewing Co

The restaurant is billed as family-friendly, with an eclectic kids menu. Similar to the regular menu, it will feature smaller portions and toned-down spice levels.

The familial theme is built into the namesake of the restaurant as well. 

“We have two beautiful daughters, and we’ve always wanted a son," Sager Cobarruvias said. "We thought about growing our family right when the lease came through for the space. It became clear that it wasn’t going to be possible to open a restaurant and have another baby."

“We decided to pour our energy into this project. Son’s Addition is our third baby, in very different form.”

The restaurant will be open for dinner service Sunday through Wednesday from 5–10pm and Thursday through Saturday from 5–11pm.
