This restaurant serves a hybrid or fusion of continental cuisine with Asian influences. The menu changes daily, but one thing that will never go off the list is the meatloaf, which was voted best in LA by Elmer Dills, a well-known restaurant reviewer in the LA area. There is an unusual item on their menu, rabbit. I have never had rabbit, but I wasn't adventurous enough to try it this time. I probably will next time.
I ordered a roasted beet salad to share with my friend. It had mission figs, walnuts, goat cheese, watercress, all with a white wine vinegar sauce over it. It was very good and flavorful. My friend decided to go with the Alakan Halibut. I tasted it, and it was very nicely done. I went with the mixed grill, which contained lamb and beef grilled to perfection. There were baby white potatoes served with the meat, so it was very filling as well.
They have an extensive wine list, so you can find just the right glass of wine to pair with your meal. I ordered a glass of Sangiovese to go with my meal. My friend and I split a English sticky date pudding for dessert, which was very good. This is a restaurant that will leave you very satisfied and wanting to return. Our bill came out to over $100 since we had ordered an appetizer, wine, and dessert. Their web site lists their menus online.
