Cassia my new favorite
Looks to me like Otium is getting a ton of hate on this board.
Cassia is wonderful, but I imagine that it would probably be out of OP’s budget?
What??? Are you new here?
Just a bit. But doable. I’ve been to all of their other spots.
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.
Thanks for the suggestion. Probably closer to a birthday dinner type of a night. which will soon come.
T’was a joke, mon frère.
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
No, it’s actually great.
You should strongly consider it for a date night, super romantic setting.
I am almost certain you meant he teamed up with them for Cassia, and only had one other restaurant, The Spice Table…?
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.
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
Republique has been done. was very good
I agree, I hated the Factory…and I sort of share the same sentiments though.
But Mare is infinitely better than Factory.
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.
Yea that’s fine… Probably doing that. Cheers
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.
sorry what? multiple servings?
L’Assiette breaks up their steak frites into two servings, half the steak & fries in serving 1 and an identical serving 2
