I highly recommend you try Nook. It is very aptly named. Tucked in the corner of a non-descript West Side strip mall just outside the 405 on Santa Monica, this is hidden gem. Parking can be a challenge. It is also exactly what a bistro should be --- French influenced comfort food, prepared in a unique way, in a stylish, sparse environment. Good service and also a neighborhood kind of place. I highly recommend the short ribs, the short ribs ragout, chicken paillard and shrimp and grits. I eat here 6 times a year and it is always great. Try the ginger beer too.
