Opus according to JG

It's interesting that some of LA's top reviewers are starting to notice this little gem of a Restaurant.

    JG ignored the bacos ?

      Agree 100%. It's about time Opus got some proper props. Jonathan Gold just gets "it." Too bad they spelled Chef Josef's name wrong! (<-- coming from a journalism background, that kind of stuff bugs me).

        i went back to opus and had the three course last week. i think i had overdosed on opus when they first opened, so i gave it a few months and was waiting for the tasting menu to change. every dish i had was different. really good meal. i liked the hamachi with sorbet a lot!

        Just went for the first time for dinner on Sunday - the tasting menu wasn't on the dinner menu and the waiter didn't mention it, so I thought it was no longer, but I guess I was wrong! Maybe you just have to ask for it. Had some fantastic hand torn pasta with grapes, chives and a jidori chicken egg. The pea soup was a little to milky for me and I didn't quite get the point of the mandarin segments floating around in it, but overall, an amazing experience and the som helped us choose some fantastic, and surprisingly affordable wines.

          Yeah, the tasting menu is NOT listed on the regular menu any more. They changed their tasting menu policy because some people were taking advantage of them. A while ago I posted something about it....


          I really like their hand torn pasta also. I think the "fruit in the soup" thing is one the chef's signature dealios.

          I'm also super glad to see that they are getting some good recognition... they deserve it and I hope they get enough business to be successful.

          I'm really glad it's getting recognition also. I hope it draws good crowds.
