Anything new & fab at Orris?

We are going over there tonight and haven't been in quite some time. What has anyone been knocked out by (in good and bad ways, natch).

Thanks, I'll report back.

  1. Don't know if it's new but it is fab: Grilled Radichio w/Parmesan was great.

      I think it's actually grilled romaine and it's definitely fantastic. People rave about the foie gras on the specials menu but I still haven't tried it.

        The foie gras is definitely delicious. I also loved the lamb carpaccio.

          Opps, romaine is right, thanks MOM!

      2. Yes, the grilled romaine with a light vinagrette and shaved parmesan is delicious. Try the seabass with black bean sauce -- so delicious, makes you wish they offered a meal-sized portion. Also, ask the server for a rec. In my experience, they are always right on the mark.

          I'll second that. The servers at Orris are so amazingly nice and helpful. It's some of my favorite service in LA.

        2. Well, everyone, last night was lovely. I love this restaurant! Such a good vibe, such nice service. No one rushes. There was a lovely seafood salad special and, yes, the romaine was super. Plus, we had a couple of glasses of wine each and several rounds of plates and the bill was under $100 (before tip). Go!

          1. Yes, something new at Orris...

            A covered (and heated) canopy on the front patio! Let the rain come, Orris fears it not!

            1. The Lamb Carpaccio and the Pork Tenderloin is always my favorite, but the squash blossom tempura on the fall menu is pretty innovative- it's a Japanese style tempura stuffed with shrimp filling and dressed with Chinese flavored sauce.
