This fabulous brasserie where hubby and I had a last-minute dinner should get more attention for its outstanding food but perhaps doesn't because it's right next to the Cedars Sinai complex. Don't let that keep you away! It's not as much of a see-and-be-seen place as The Ivy around the corner, but it should be!! Had a great roasted beet salad with golden and pink/red beets as well as candied walnuts and the best plums I have ever tasted: perfection. Turns out the chef goes to the Farmers Market daily. At the beginning of the meal the chef presented each of us with an amazing amuse bouche we had never seen and hadn't ordered, but were thrilled to try: heirloom tomato with blue cheese ice cream! Unbelieveable! The blue cheese flavor was distinctive but not overpowering. My husband had the unusual appetizer of grilled Monterey sardines, which included purple potatoes and cherry tomatoes, among other treats. For our entrees, we both chose the free range chicken Dijon. Each serving included a breast and a thigh. Superb. I opted for the included French fries; he chose to substitute broccolini. We left happy and satisfied but with no room for dessert!
