Snapshot: Allston Yacht Club

Allstonyachtclub Last time we checked in with Allston Yacht Club, it was in the middle of changing its name from 15 to AYC. Now, it's officially rebranded itself and crafted a unique identity with small plates of eclectic international cuisine and a very cool back-lighted ocean wall. (Pictured here with a boisterous patron pretending to swim in it. AYC also has an intimate mini-neighborhood bar scene and some of the nicest bartenders in the area.) On Sundays, it offers a three-dish special for $16, so that's a good time to test the waters, so to speak.

Allston Yacht Club, 1320 Echo Park Ave., L.A. (213) 481-0454.
