Tips

  • So glad I finally tried this place. I had the steak, and my friends had the chicken and trout. We also had apps desserts and wine, all were great. Ambience/environment was super nice as well. A must.
  • The mushroom soup appetizer is heavenly.
  • The food is so flavorful and the waitstaff super friendly. Get the rainbow trout!!
  • Featured in LA Weekly's 99 Essential Restaurants!
  • Try the kumquat gimlet its so good.
  • The jidori chicken is the poultry equivalent of wagyu. The bed of vegetables make for an incredible dish.
  • The service was fantastic
  • Chef Nyesha Arrington eats here on her nights off. She loves the Roasted organic beet salad.
