Breeze Restaurant Review
The Breeze is a brilliant restaurant
located in Century City at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. I was surprised to see such a friendly place, not
so usual for a
hotel restaurant. But the service and the warming
atmosphere, makes Breeze a
place to not miss. My definition of Breeze is
unmistakable service quality, exceptionally crafted, brilliant food,
elegant and magic!
Breeze it's a smart, contemporary space with a gorgeous open bar area, and
the drinks are absolutely amazing.
The side patios are so gorgeous that makes you believe you are not in Los
Angeles, but in some Caribbean Island, and a riotous clamor of a scene. I
love that you can also stop in for a lunch business, or take your friends,
all at very moderate prices.
The dining room sparkles, our dinner was just spectacular, and since I live
in the area, I will make that my favorite restaurant from now on, and will
take all my family and close friends for another pleasant culinary
We started at the bar and greeted by their friendly bartender who did a
Mojito, it was truly one of the best in town! Also their wine list is
impressively large and affordable.
I could not wait for my dinner, my intuition told me that it was going to
be truly impressionable, and I was right on!
Our friendly waiter guided us, as per my request, on the appetizer's menu,
so we started with the Vegetable Dumpling, with micro sprouts, sweet
dipping chili sauce, very delicious and light, we liked very much, followed
by the Organic Baby Green Salad; with Roquefort crusted goat cheese on a
shallot vinaigrette dressing, that I really enjoyed because it was very
fresh and you just can't reproduce this dressing at home, it just does not
taste the same!

We could not miss their Blue Fin Tuna Tartar, the Jonah Crab Cake, and the
Porcini Crusted Scallops, all of them were not only presented beautifully
but the tasting was stunningly diverse from any other restaurant I've been.

There's more to come, much more. Tempted by the main course, from many
choices we had, delectable highlights include the Seafood lemon Risotto
with prawn, mussel and scallop and the Pecan Crusted Red Snapper on a
Sonoma Chardonnay sauce. Now, do I need to say that it was superb? Simply
the best choice, the fish was cooked perfectly and the risotto, reminded me
of my mother's homemade one... but this one was even better!

As far as
meat, we could not pass on the Roasted Lamb Rack and the Prime Filet Mignon
served with whipped potato, sautéed Bloomsdale spinach. When the steak
comes, it's just as we ordered -- charred medium rare. Tender and juicy, it
gets high marks for flavor. This is the best steak in the house. It's
rectangular, when I cut it, it's slippery soft. The texture is almost
liver-y." Also, the Lamb was very tender and the texture and flavor were
again, deliciously done.

Last Impression is the title of their dessert menu… and I was truly
impressed, Master Pastry chef Thomas Henzi, turns out sophisticated,
mannered desserts. Some of them are really, really good. I never tasted
such a delicious dessert that makes you not stop eating until you finally
see it is gone, the name; Fried Beignets, served with strawberry and Mango
Salsa, on Caramel Bananas with Peppered Strawberry Sorbet. Please, don’t
miss this one, I guarantee you there this is the best Beignets of your
entire life! We were also surprised by the Grand Marnier Crème Brulee,
with Fresh Raspberries, and Almond Financier Cake, again Fantastic and
different from any other crème Brule I’ve tasted.
Chef Felix Nappoly the Executive Sous Chef did prepared an amazing menu. I
wanted to thank you for your truly spectacular menu, we were absolutely
delighted and satisfied with the amazing service, presentation and taste of
your unforgettable menu.
