SLAB, the brainchild of Bakman and the h.wood Group, was born in 2015. The team agreed that whatever was to come would not only have to be dedicated to the best quality brisket and ribs, but would need to be faithful to the elbow-rubbing charm of Bakman’s backyard barbecue. After 3 years of perfecting the space, kitchen, and recipes, SLAB officially opened as a brick-and-mortar location on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 along a busy strip of West Third Street in Los Angeles.

When you sit down at SLAB and taste the marbled brisket for the first time or strike up a conversation over a shared plate of food, you’ll know this experience has been worth the wait.
