AS FEATURED IN...
From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
Following its redesign by Andrée Putman, this once-demure French restaurant now looks like a whimsical art gallery. Chef Walter Manzke expertly prepares an international menu, ranging from Thai <em>tom kha</em> soup to Italian <em>burrata</em> and tomato salad. His wife, Margarita, is the pastry chef; her bacon brioche is sensational.
We loved: Roast duck with creamy potato gratin.
Insider tip: Request a table on the lavender-lined patio, one of the loveliest in L.A.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
