Nook Neighborhood Bistro (West LA)

By in 11: West LA

We spotted a sign “Nook Neighborhood Bistro” at a mini-mall full of pizza and take out food, across from Sasaya. When we went there…hmmm where is it? Turns out it’s very well hidden at the corner…subversive eh?
Inside it’s all slick and stylish. Menu is American comfort food.
Nook Burger: Sterling Silver beef with gruyere cheese, red wine- braised onion and baby arugula on grilled rustic bread.

Organic Half Chicken Roast on frisee with lardons, dried cranberries, toasted pumpkin seed and Nook dressing. Quite good, even though the chicken itself was bland, the skin was crispy and meat quite moist.

Initially we tried to go to Father Office (famous for their burgers) but turn around our car as we saw the long lines outside. I heard that this Nook burger ingredient wise resembles Father Office’s. The dinner was quite good but nothing special.

    I think I probably have had that “rustic bread” before but didn’t know what it’s called…interesting to use it for a burger. The drink “creme” is beer?

    Yeah the bread taste so good!!! I doubt anyone can really pick up and eating this burger with hand thtough. ^^;; Creme is …cream soda…haha~ When I ordered that Austrialian ginger beer, the waiter was like “oh? we serve this? I have to look up…” Am I the first ever to order that? But then later the person who sat next to me order the same drink too.
