    For those who haven't been in a while, Ingredients is now offering sandwiches and "small bites." They're also doing tasting menus - there's a 4 course Burgundy menu coming up in late Feb, and a Moroccan menu in early March.

      Oh Yes,
      Such a great place...they had a 5 course "swine-a-licious" menu a couple of weeks ago...way too good of a time was had that night!
      The food, the people, way too much wine and bubbles...it was great!!!
      Too bad I wont be able to make the French Country dinner night because I know the guys down at Rosso are gonna be having a hand at the wine pairing for the evening so I know it will be great.
      If anyone goes, please let us all know how it goes!
      Oh, y'all gotta try the duck confit salad...they serve it at lunch and on the weekend small bites menu...sooo good1

        I'll be there (just made my reservations yesterday, which made me think of updating this thread), I'll let you know how it is - i'm sure it'll be amazing!

      Outstanding! So glad to hear it's arrived. I've been curious and waiting for so long that I gave up looking for it. Sometimes, business's gestation periods in Montrose are what-the-hell's-taking-so-long long. We were just at La Cabanita tonight (and our food was nearly hot--wow!)--I should have eyeballed the block as we were heading home.
      Looking forward to stepping in the door. Bonne chance!

          it's at 3521 Verdugo Road - i think it's technically Glendale, but it's location is just south of Montrose (it's right near a deli, and is north of Rosso Wine shop) - here is a map posted on an earlier thread:

                I think the new year will bring the sous vide (if that's how you spell it" goodies...mmm, I can't wait.
                I got some great french sheeps milk cheese and some marcona almonds that they fried up "in house" and some lomo....all were a big hit with my friends.
                I will defintiely be see quite a bit of this new great addition.

            Ooops...the borads didn't let me finish the post...hmmm.
            So, here it is.

            As y'all know, I LOVED Bistro Verdu and pretty much wept when it closed....I've waited for the Chef of Bistro Verdu to open his new little gem, just up the street from his former spot, and now the time has come for me to celebrate!!!
            Here's the email I just got from them:

            friends of Bistro Verdu and Ingredients,

              I went last week for some yummy cheese and proscuitto. i was also looking for creme fraiche, which they didn't have - they told me to come back the next day, and there was freshly made creme fraiche! i can't wait until they start serving more food!
