Long Island Ice Tea
We started by having a selection of drinks and my favorite was the Blueberry

outstanding. The bar
is very elegant and comfortable.
On the evening of our visit we were greeted by a great server, an
and skilled waiter who expertly
guided us through the ordering process.
Poached Egg Starter
A poached egg which was absolute delicicious. This was a fantastic complement
to our dish. You must go there and try for your self, I just can’t describe the
flavor and the
texture, it was simply a dream come true for food lovers.
Duck and Salmon Pate Appetizers
We followed our server recommendation and began with a selection of appetizers,
the daily dip appetizer was very light and great, it was a selection of 3 different
kind of dips, and it was very well with their amazing home made bread. We also had
a great selection of Pate in a Mousse format. Our choice was the Duck pate and the
Salmon. Though simple in name, this dish features creamy, melting chevre, which
was served along with a variety of breads. Robust yet refined, it was a smashing
Paprika Laced Calamari
Yellow Tail Tartare
We could not pass without having their Paprika Laced Calamari With Gallego Sauce,
it was absolutely divine, one of the best calamari’s in town. We loved this one!
The Yellow Tail Tartare with crushed avocado and white soy vinaigrette was also
one of the best appetizers of the evening! It was all spectacular, and the service
Young Lettuce Salad

When our server returned to our table, he delivered a stunning rendition
of an Olive
Oil Poached wild Salmon, on a delicious bed of vanilla
scented chinese black rice
and kumquats. The Salmon flavor
profile proved to be an absolute delight to the
Sauteed New Zealand Sea Bream
We also sampled a Sauteed New Zealand Sea Bream with charred romained
bing cherry. This dish was replete with European influence,
and was every bit as
flavorful as its description suggests.
Red Wine Braised Beef Short Rib
Our other entree succulent, sauteed was a real treat. Those who are unfamiliar
Wine Braised Beef Short Rib with garlic-quince aioli should really give
them a try.
The texture of this meat along with their dense,
earthy flavor paired exquisitely
with Txakolina wine.
Also another entrée you can’t miss is the Beef Rib-Eye,
the tenderness of
is really uncomparable, and you can not go wrong, absolutely fantastic.
Ice Cream Waffle Tostada
Our dessert, almost dainty in its elegance, proved the perfect conclusion to our
truly astounding meal. The Apple Shortcake with dried aprocots, candied pistachios,
chai latte ice cream on a cnnamon brandy sauce was simply divine; together, the
elements combined in gentle harmony, the quark infusing richness into the cake,
producing a delicate cake-like consistency. We’ve also tried the Ice Cream Waffle
trio of ice cream, maple caramel brown butter, candied almonds, vanilla
sel, a great ending as well. As we savored the light dessert we felt our
slowly cleared of the complex flavors we had been privileged to experience.
Alvear Solera 1927 Port
Having reached the end of our leisurely meal, we found our visit to have been filled
with graciousness, warmth and charm; the harmonious combination of atmosphere
cuisine working to transport us to another time and place. While we found ourselves
reluctant to return to reality, we were thrilled to have experienced
a magical establishment that for years has continued to offer
one of the most exquisite,
enjoyable, and evocative meals in Los Angeles.
