Animal Restaurant (Fairfax district)

By in 09: Weho, Favorite Food Entries

Heard a lot about this place and my friend who tired it highly recommended it. Located at the very hip part of Fairfax district, this sign-less restaurant has a youthful scenester vibe. The owners are known as “two food dudes” who have a show on the Food network which I haven’t seen (is it good?) […]

Lucques Restaurant (Melrose Ave.)

By in 09: Weho, Food: Los Angeles

Freda had her spectacular birthday dinner at Ortolan. I had mine at Lucques with Jon. We’ve alway wanted to try Lucques but never get around to. I love chef/owner Suzanne Goin’s other establishments A.O.C. and Hungry Cat very much. Los Angeles Magazine called Lucques the no.1 restaurant in LA recently, so we had high expectation. […]
