Date night, your choice!


#21

Cassia my new favorite


#22

Looks to me like Otium is getting a ton of hate on this board.


#23

Cassia is wonderful, but I imagine that it would probably be out of OP’s budget?


#24

What??? Are you new here?


#25

Just a bit. But doable. I’ve been to all of their other spots.


#26

Bryant Ng has only had one other restaurant (although he teamed up w/ the Rustic Canyon people to open Spice Table).

If you don’t mind the drive and can secure a reservation, it’d make a very nice place for date night, IMHO.


#27

Thanks for the suggestion. Probably closer to a birthday dinner type of a night. which will soon come.


#28

T’was a joke, mon frère.


#29

Want to go there soon. Just have wine and steak frites. Sounds perfect. Wine pricing is suspect though. Lincourt for 15/glass is a bit nuts… i get bottles for 15-16 so that’s a quadruple mark-up. Usually around 2.5


#30

No, it’s actually great.

You should strongly consider it for a date night, super romantic setting.


#31

I am almost certain you meant he teamed up with them for Cassia, and only had one other restaurant, The Spice Table…?


#32

Well, I think it’s obvious I would toss my recommendation for them into the hat as well.

But you could also have a truly great time at Odys & Penelope, or Republique.


#33

I really hated my visit to his old place in this same location… garden seating be damned… and he’s just such a slob i’m turned off… but yea i’ll give it a whirl i suppose


#34

Republique has been done. was very good


#35

I agree, I hated the Factory…and I sort of share the same sentiments though.

But Mare is infinitely better than Factory.


#36

Woops, I misread that line, thought you were considering Republique haha

I think if you’re willing to make the drive, you should just go to Hatchet Hall probably.


#37

Yea that’s fine… Probably doing that. Cheers


#38

I’ve enjoyed many a meal at L’Assiette. The soup is amazing. The frites are well done, and for the price, the steak is quite good. I always eat the first serving, and almost never have room for the second serving.


#39

sorry what? multiple servings? :scream:


#40

L’Assiette breaks up their steak frites into two servings, half the steak & fries in serving 1 and an identical serving 2
