The Place. A Classy, Casual Dining… Place
The place has the perfect blend of classy and casual. The brick walls, wooden floors, and spazzy design scheme show that there were definitely some professionals involved in creating this place. Actually, it felt distinctly American – like a typical, well funded Los Angeles diner. I felt at home.
You enter to a large open kitchen and are greeted by the smell of baking bread. Is there a better smell in the world? Then you walk past a small priced-by-weight salad bar. Seats are upstairs and you can order either downstairs or up.
Today we had a little salad, the Hot Bacon and Shrimp Panini, and the Apple Gorgonzola Pizza.
Hot Bacon and Shrimp Panini 7,200
The Hot Bacon and Shrimp Panini I’d only give a 6/10. The vegetables had a nice color and flavor and the shrimp was well seasoned and cooked right with a soft layer of coating. My main gripe though is that it was too sweet. There was just an overwhelming amount of honey mustard sauce that robbed the flavor from the shrimp and vegetables. Also, for 7,200 I expected a bit more substance and was left hungry. Thus, we had to order the pizza.
Apple Gorgonzola Pizza 7,900
The Apple Gorgonzola Pizza pretty much tasted exactly how it looks. Looks amazing right? Yeah, it was. I was a bit skeptical of combining cheese and apple, but the combo worked pretty well. The baking sucked a lot of the sweetness from the apple and overall it tasted very clean, with the gorgonzola cheese left to be the star. Well done. It was served with apple sauce, which the girlfriend loved, but like I said… I’m not a big fan of mixing salt and sweet.
