We’ve been trying to get to this cute little restaurant just south of Westwood Village for a couple of years now. Their lunch menu is filled with scrumptious salads, sandwiches and sides ~ all with fresh locally sourced ingredients. We just happened to go during Dine LA week and the place was packed! It’s clear that it’s a hot spot any time of year however with their Power Lunch options.
It was a Grilled Cheese kind of day which we paired with the Creamy Tomato soup that was deliciously topped with a dollop of smokey yogurt crème reminiscent of a campfire. Perfect for dunking the hearty sourdough with melted cheese and sweet carmelized onions. The Falafel Wrap was also quite tasty ~ filled with a lovely herb salad, moist falafels and fresno chilis which gave it a nice spicy kick! The Orzo side dish was a beautiful medley of artichoke, sun dried tomatos, spinach, feta and olives in a lemon-shallot vinaigrette. Each meal came with a chewy chocolate chip cookie ~ crumbdilicious!
I definitely will be returning for dinner soon and a local bottle of wine. And maybe one of their handshaken Real Vanilla Crème Sodas for dessert ~ it’s on their beverage menu but it’s so frothy and delicious ~ ice cream shakelike ~ essential to try at least once.
