Had dinner here last night. The place, in Sherman Oaks, was easy to find and had the usual $10 LA valet available. Once inside, it was like a scene straight out of Paris, or at least Balthazar in NYC.
The baguettes were wonderful, crusty outside and warm and soft inside and served with French extra fatty salted butter. We ended up having four orders over the course of the meal.
We shared a frisee lardon typical French salad. I was impressed that, although there were only a few ingredients, it was delicious. The crispy lardons were amazing.
For mains we shared a perfect French cheese omelet, declared by our group’s eggspert to be “the best omelet I’ve ever had.” I can’t argue. The steak frites came with a cognac peppercorn cream sauce and a mound of skinny, crisp and not oily at all fries. The best was the burger, called a Big Mec and touted as one of the most decadent burgers in the world. It’s nice when things live up to the hype. The bordelaise sauce alone was perfection.
Desserts were two chocolate souffles and an apple tart for two. We finished every bite.
Make this place a stop if you ever visit LA. One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time.
