The Bellwether


The Bellwether, a Studio City culinary destination from Ted Hopson and partner Ann-Marie Verdi, frequently riffs on comfort food standbys. For his patty melt, Hopson forms a patty with brisket, short rib, and shoulder meat and griddles in a cast-iron skillet before serving on buttery rye bread with Taleggio cheese and caramelized onions. Each melt comes with spicy Calabrian chile aioli, which is available to slather at your discretion.
