Le Pain Quotidien, West Hollywood

Went in for dinner this weekend... I was amazed and shocked to see this same restaurant that I had breakfast in a few days earlier transformed into a cool dinner patio.

They had a small trio playing sot instrumental music which complemented the meal (tapas and a couple of bottles of wine) perfectly...

We had a hazelnut flute topped with blue cheese and cranberry, a brioche bun with fig and goat cheese, and shrimp and chorizo skillet as well as bread, lovely bread... with spreads.... HEAVEN!

This place does mostly everything right... my one issue is that there are too many menus... a little confusing and not very environmental....

But i'll be back Le Pain Quotidien....! I will be back....

that was a great article... i had no idea!

although I am not a vegan fanatic... I do beleive that increasing the amount of farm fresh items in our diet is a win win for everyone....

Le Pain QUotidien is my new favorite place... i looked on the web site and saw that they have alot of stores in Los Angeles....

I am planning on going back tonight to the one in WeHo to have dinner, the server told me that they just started a tapas style menu which they serve after 4pm....

thanks for the article!

maybe I'm the last person on earth to discover this restaurant.... but I met friends there this morning for breakfast and was BLOWN AWAY!

Seemed very busy for a thursday morning.

I usually go to the Urth Cafe a few doors down, but have grown tired of the food there lately... so when we were looking for a place to meet... my friend suggested Le Pain ....

Finally figured out what quotidien means... (the whole thing means the daily bread)...

I was most impressed with the wide selection of Organic offerings (everything?)

Has anyone else "discovered" this little place? has it been there long? I can hardly wait to go back to try them out for lunch or even dinner....

Which steakhouse gets it "right" regarding how the beef is cooked?

You know where I ate recently was Shula's steakhouse by the airport. they get it right... temperatures are right on and even verified witha little description by the servers.. ie MR they say back to you "that it will have a cool pink center,."

Ford's Filling Station - $16 for THAT burger?

Had the fish and chips there yesterday... I thought that they were pretty good, as well as the battered asparagus... delicious... though all was over priced, and service was non-existant.

Help Need Salad Bar Place Quick!

I recently checked out The Dressing Room on Ventura in Sherman Oaks. It was quite wonderful. It wasn't exactly a salad bar, but a salad restaurant as they prepared the salad for me. But they had everything laid out like a salad bar.

The Dressing Room - salads in Sherman Oaks (long)

I went there today for lunch, I just got back to the office. It was a REALLY great salad... I am very impressed. I asked about bread, they warmed a sun-dried tomato flat bread for me, I guess that you have to ask.

I had the napa delight, it was amazing how the tanginess of the dressing went so well with the mango's and (goat cheese)? it may have been some other soft cheese, but either way it went very well together. Great job!

beechwood on venice

I think that this place is great, it represents everything good about Venice. The people, the weather, the food, the deisgn all come to gether to form a unique and exciting restaurant without all of the west side upityness (sp). Check this place out!

The Dressing Room - salads in Sherman Oaks (long)

Really, this sounds GREAT to me, and as I recall, isn't their a huge parking lot behind this mall (with FREE parking), this reminds me of the amazing salad deli's that are abundant in NYC, it's about time someone figured out how to make it work in LA, we deserve this.
