Foursquare Tips

  • Try the Spanish fried chicken with cumin, pappardelle with nettles and asparagus with lemongrass, and dont forget the glass of Sancerre.
  • If you dont have a reservation, try the bar.
  • With a new full bar and revamped California-style menu, the tastefully designed eatery is perfectly poised for drinks with friends at the bar up front or a quiet date in one of the back booths.
  • One of our professional reviers, LA weekly, says, "Suzanne Goin's pan-Mediterranean A.O.C. is a fantasy of a modern small-plates restaurant."
  • Boa tarde.
  • AOC is excellent. Sit by the charcuterie bar and ask the cheese person plenty of questions. -Alex Eusebio, Top Chef
  • Fabulous wine bar with great wines by the glass. Try the interesting tapas. -Merle Ginsberg, Launch My Line
  • Try the farmers plate
  • Come to sample AOC and others at this years Gold Standard on 3/6/11! http://bit.ly/iaPthT
  • Many tantalizing tapas and a great list of wines to try. Try the bacon wrapped dates, they're delicious!
  • Small plates of delicious food like rustic pts are the norm here. Make sure you book your table well in advance, as it is still hard to find a seat at this popular spot, five years after opening!
  • Try the pork cheeks and have the waitress select five cheese for you. Delish!
  • Supposedly a really good date spot
  • Always a good meal. Good wine. Best enjoyed with good company!
  • The stunning Spanish-style patio at the new location of AOC looks out onto a lemon tree-lined street, making you feel like you're a world away from the L.A. crazy. Brunch goes from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
  • Spanish fried chicken is so good. Just get this. You won't be disappointed.
  • A shot of Pappy 23 yr is $150.
  • Where the new AOC parts with the old is in its big platters, like the ones served at Lucques' family dinners, meant to be plunked in the middle of the table and shared by three or four people.
  • You could be happy here ordering nothing but vegetables: black rice and chewy farro with pine nuts; lightly curried cauliflower, or soft, almost soupy polenta with spears of charred asparagus.
  • Always astonishingly delicious.
