This great place has changed names and is now Cafe Noir but still has the same great food with a friendly French owner.

This place was a real find! Classical decor, excellent service and spectacular food! We had the beef cheeks whilst our son had the wild boar pappardelle. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to LA.
