Nice restaurant nestled amid all of the noodle shops on Sawtelle. We sat inside due to the chill, but two screaming children at the next table went at it non-stop for most of the meal. Not the restaurant’s fault, but it did put a damper on conversation.
The glasses of wine were rather pricey, starting at $13, so we opted for lemonade. The lemonade was fresh squeezed, as evidenced by a lemon seed in one of the glasses. It was delicious. We shared their Potato Dinner Rolls and a Spring Chopped Salad. Salad was OK, although I’m not a fan of kale. The rolls are a matter of taste – a bit dense for my taste, but tasty. For main courses we had Spicy Shrimp Linguine (very good); Fried Chicken and Biscuits (the chicken was moist and had a nice kick to it, whereas the biscuits were left uneaten due to their being undercooked); Braised Lamb Shank (very very good – nice and succulent). The portions were large, so nobody leaves the table hungry.
We also had Avocado Pie for dessert and it was a shared ehhh by the three of us. Tasted a bit like a boxed gelatin-type dessert.
The bathroom was kind of odd, all white mini subway tiles on all walls and the ceiling, and rock music piped in at rock concert decibel level. Definitely not the zen-like experience I was hoping for when I escaped the screaming children for a few moments.
I was kind of surprised that nobody said goodbye, thanks for coming, even though we left a very generous cash tip. I think it was the owner or manager and the bartender who were too engaged in conversation at the bar to acknowledge 3 people as we left.
