Valley Adventura: Black Market Liquor Bar

They've all got them. Those Valley-dwelling clients too "deep into their screenplay" to venture South of Ventura Blvd. Problem is, you have no idea what exists there, unless you're still living with mom and dad.

Fear not the seemingly bleak Valley abyss. When Boss is lost and in need of food guidance, Black Market holds its own over the hill.

Top Chef All-Star competitor Antonia Lofaso helms the kitchen, serving a full range of delicious tapas-style food.

Pablo Moix and Steve Livigni of Harvard & Stone & La Descarga collaborated on the killer cocktail menu.

Not pictured must-orders: BBQ short rib sliders, fried cauliflower with lemon aioli, roasted baby beet salad, and a Red Hot & Bothered to wash it down with.

Bonus: there's a hidden dining room for small parties. Boss has to walk into the kitchen, down a hallway and through a hidden door to get there. Now you know.
