I had one for my first time ever in San Fransisco at a place called Absynthe and it was amazing they made theres with
Gin
lemon juice
simple syrup
champagne
a lemon curl
and the best of all was a little spear of real brandied cherries it was amazing I do not drink Gin and would never taint my champagne with even a drop of OJ but my golly this was amazing I want one now

15 Restaurant in Echo Park

I've been there at least a doz times and it's great for a local spot. I'm sick of Edendale grill and Masa just SUCKs (how many Panini's can you eat with a 12$ glass of wine) At 15 I've had the Risotto special several times and it's A+ The Kobe burger is very good (just don't ask for it rare or the inside will be raw) the lavender fries are PERFECT! Dessert of the day is always very good they usually incorporate Mexican chocolate. The male waiters are a bit weird, I had a very good waitress once. The owner is super nice and friendly the acoustics do suck it gets load very quick. I think it's funny when they ask us if we would like a window seat as if we are overlooking Echo Park river instead it's the old gross Pioneer Chicken. For Echo Park I think it's an A+ I just wish I could walk to dinner.

15 Scores High in Echo Park

I really like this place for a local spot we used to go to the Edendale for local but I'm over it. I've eaten there about 12 times and the food is very good the male wait staff can be weird I had a great female waitress once. Deserts are very good the chocolate bread pudding is so yummy and I don't even like bread pudding. It's a little loud and the location is not great, I love when they ask us if we want a window seat and I say why so I can look at the hobo sleeping at the Pioneer chicken? The burger is very good just don't ask for rare it comes out RAW the fries are the best I've had in a long long time. It's better than Masa!
