This brasserie-bar combination sitting proudly under its green awning on Ventura oozes old-school French bistro luxury with dark, polished mahogany, soft, white tablecloths, and glitzy chandeliers. The food is no exception to its penchant for glamour: classically French dishes like chunky steaks sides with fluffy fries, tartare, rosemary- and garlic-roasted chickens, and wild grilled salmon showcase a penchant for culinary detail.
Since 1988, this classy French bistro has been winning loyal fans with its classic dishes, lengthy wine list, and sharp service. Thankfully not much has changed over the years, including the sparkling chandeliers, dark wood paneling, and vintage mirrored bar. Be sure to check out the reliable takes on essentials like Steak au Poivre, Roasted Chicken, and an excellent Chocolate Soufflé.
How to book: Don’t forget to make a reservation — it’s a classic place.
