Grill Lyon (Little Tokyo)

By in 06: Downtown LA

I never knew there’s a Japanese French restaurant in Little Tokyo all these years, what’s wrong with me!? The interior of Grill Lyon is badly lit and undesign, but the mostly white haired patrons indicated the food must be classic and solid quality (a never wrong rule for French food I’ve learn that only works on LA ~ ^_-).
Foie-Gras of Apple $14, delicious~ White miso marinated Chilean Sea Bass with Balsamic Pistachio top $18, is really stunning!
Got my lamb fix with the incredible Peppered Lamb Chop ($24). Very good! YES!!!
DSC09432.jpgThe desserts weren’t so good unfortunately, Orange Mousse and Pear Jelly…the fruit flavor are syrupy and too sugary. Should have stayed with cheesecake or chocolate. They sold out their duck that night unfortunately, as well as the special of the night which was a sushi-style Tuna…T_T But we’re very satisfied with our dishes. I can’t wait to go back (even for the lamb again and again)! So great to find an affordable casual good French place nearby where we live.

    Wow, the food looks great! Especially the lamb, 3 racks wow! But yeah the dessert looks strangely coloured.

    I wouldn’t expect a French restaurant inside Little Tokyo too(it is the place I went to have a coffee I think…)!

    Even if the sushi-style tuna was available, would you actually order that in a French restaurant?? ^^;;;

    btw, you know French goose/duck are banned from importing to Japan and HK? I might not get to eat foie gras/duck as often as I like…ToT

    Oh is it because of the evian flu…or…? But aren’t Asia where the flu attacks heavist? (so shouldn’t it be asian’s chicken being banned to export?)

    France had infected cases too apparently~~~this avian flu thing is so deadly but the most concerned thing is shortage of foie gras/gibier…^^;;
