Thankful for coming to Los Angeles prepared to get in my workouts, I set out to discover this much talked about gem completely guilt free.
Jolee and I got seats toward the end of one of two community tables and quickly fell into conversation with three ladies out for GNO (Girl's Night Out). Remember the buzz I felt from yoga? This restaurant was that personified.
Our night started with a tomato and burrata salad
Marinated Beet & Avocado with Hazelnuts & Sherry
Hen of the Woods Mushroom Toast with Creme Fraiche & Truffle Oil
Grilled Monterey Bay Squid with a White Bean Salad & Salsa Verde
And ended on a very high note with Strawberry/Rhubarb/Cornmeal Crisp with Toasted Almond Gelato
And probably the best Pot de Creme I have ever had: Butterscotch Pot de Crème with Salted Caramel & Crème Fraiche. I'm usually a "take a bite of dessert and pass it on" kind of girl but not that night. I was beyond territorial with the Pot de Creme!
