DSC04358.jpgDSC04356.jpgDSC04359.jpgFinally try the famous A.O.C. Winebar! A lot of people recommended me it to be their favorite restaurant. It’s also on the Best restaurants in LA list. It’s a tapas place where you share small plates family style. The waitress recommended us the Roasted dates wrapped with bacon and parmesan, it’s really good! She also recommended us the wine, wonderful! Speck with apples and arugula. Not very sure what speck is but it’s very similar to prosciutto.

DSC04369.jpgDSC04371.jpgLamb skewers with artichokes barigoule and walnuts, It’s very good and doesn’t has lamb’s muskiness. braised pork cheeks with horseradish gremolata , not much impression. italian broccoli with garlic and chilis.

DSC04373.jpgDSC04376.jpgAlain’s blanc manger with cherry compote, manger is somewhere between a custard and pudding? It’s very milky with heavy almond flavor, very delicious. Strawberry-rhubarb crumble tart with buttermilk ice cream, so-so. Everything tasted good in general. There were 4 of us and we ordered 10 dishes and a bottle of wine, with tax and tips it’s about $50 per person. I was a little surprised it didn’t cost more.

    The roasted dates definitely look the best! Mussels look good too. The broccoli sounds a bit chinese. The tapas you ordered do look like they go well with wine~~
