PINE & CRANE is a fast-casual Taiwanese-Chinese restaurant located in the heart of Silver Lake. Our goal is to bring you authentic, delicious Taiwanese-Chinese fare in a comfortable, modern setting. We are passionate about what we do, and take pride in preparing our food using simple, fresh ingredients. Whenever possible, we source seasonal produce from our family's local Asian vegetable farm: as a result, our vegetable dishes change frequently in order to showcase rare and freshly harvested items. 

In addition to Taiwanese staples like Three Cup Chicken and Beef Noodle Soup, we offer a variety of small plates, traditional cold appetizers, and vegetarian/vegan options, together with a curated selection of fine teas sourced from Taiwan and a rotating craft beer and wine list. 

Welcome to the PINE & CRANE family. We look forward to serving you!

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Can I make reservations?

A: We are very casual here at PINE & CRANE, and do not currently take reservations. Seating is first-come, first-serve--but feel free to give us a call before you arrive and we'll be happy to let you know how busy things are in the dining room. 

Q: Can I save a seat before placing my order?

A: We ask guests to kindly refrain from saving seats prior to placing their orders. This ensures that everyone gets seated on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Q: What if I can't find a seat after I've ordered? 

A: Not to worry! Grab a drink, relax by the bar, and our seater will keep an eye on your party and let you know as soon as an appropriate table opens up (at which point the kitchen will also be notified, so you won't start receiving food until you're good & settled). 

Q: Can we sit outside in the Sunset Triangle?

A: Absolutely! However, the Triangle is a public space, and we do not have the necessary permit to provide outside table service. This means we cannot serve alcohol or provide glassware for those who choose to sit outside--but we'll gladly pack up your food in to-go containers and provide you everything you need (napkins, utensils, extra sauces, etc) for a picnic!  Just be sure to let the cashier know that you wish to sit outside when you place your order.

Q: How can I contact you with further questions?

A: We'd love to hear from you! Our goal at PINE & CRANE is to offer guests a warm, welcoming, and comfortable experience--but we can't do it without your feedback. Please share your comments and suggestions with us via our CONTACT page, or simply stop by to say hello!
