Petit Trois Le Valley

le valley > l’original.
bigger space, bigger menu, better fries.
i couldn’t figure out why the fries at le valley were so much better than l’original until i listened to air jordy. it’s because le valley has enough room for a freezer so they freeze their fries as opposed to using fresh ones at l’original. @Chowseeker1999, @TheCookie, @Bookwich, @attran99

i’ll be back for the le valley-only poulet roti

le pain
The best baguette in la or the greatest baguette in la?

tomato-braised lamb meatballs, lamb, pork, garlic bread

steak frites, cognac pepper sauce
the fries with the cognac pepper sauce is incredible

(le valley exclusive) chocolate souffle, chocolate sauce, chantilly


ron burgundy escargot - garlic, parsley, butter
I don’t care for fast food. This should be described as butter and garlic garnished with nautilus (nautili?).

omelette (the ludo tamago) - boursin pepper cheese, chives
Is the after-dinner omelette considered second dinner or first breakfast? #askingforafriend

not toto


bacon and onion tart, parmesan, thyme
besides the burnt crust this was delicious, creamy sweet onions with bacon pieces that weren’t too salty on a crispy puff-pastry like crust.

poulet roti, roasted garlic jus, potato puree
this looked great and had a crispy skin, but unfortunately was poorly executed. the leg and thigh were okay but the breast was horribly dry and overcooked and the sauce a bit too salty. potato puree was good.

Well, well, it is confirmed. Le Valley trumps (pardon my language) Le Highland by a nose or maybe two.

  1. I’ll also be back for the Le Valley-only Poulet Roti even though I haven’t been there yet.
  2. I can decide… Petit Trois’ Baguette w/Normandy Butter beats Republique’s because it’s not a fleeting love. I think about it for a long time after.
  3. Sooo that’s what the delicious Cognac Pepper Sauce is for. Great French Fries! Because our steak was ummm… how should I say this… I didn’t love it.
  4. Think of the snail garnished garlic butter as another topping for the incredible Baguette and you’ll be fine.

P.S. Le Highland’s bathroom is cooler. It may not have a Toto either but it has Brigitte Bardot, so.

Did I just do a mini report?

Agreed, thought the steak was just okay. Now if we can somehow combine the filet from pasjoli with the frites and sauce from petit trois :thinking:

Good news for you. Clark Street now operates a cafe in Echo Park where you can walk in and grab that same baguette w/o having to deal with GCM madness. Of course, you’ll have to provide the Normandy butter, but that’s where Epicurus Gourmet comes in.

Bummer, it looks like it could be great.

Lol, I always consider the Valley a road trip. Looks great, may be worth the drive. (Those fries!)

Also, I definitely think they have the best baguettes in Los Angeles, maybe all of California. You can call ahead and ask them to save you one or two to take home. How great is that?
