Lunch at Bastide

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon.$38.00 3 course lunch.Gazpacho to start - Salad Course - a melange - separate plates of Roasted Tomato and Burrata Crostini, Green Salad, a Couple of Langoustine sauteed and Asparagus Topped with Fried Egg, Sunny Side Up and Bearnaise -terrific. There are 5 choices of main courses - on the menu reads
Beef -today Short Rib. Fish -Colorado Salmon. Duck - Vietnamese Duck Sandwich - Vegetables or 3 Mini Pulled Pork Sliders. We picked the Duck and Pig Sliders both were served with a side of French Fries and Cauliflower au Gratin.Rhubard Pie for dessert.
Pieter the best sommelier in LA is there to suggest wines by the glass. We had some Gruner and Dry Riesling, also served in half glasses. Sat outside in the garden, loved dinner there- lunch just as good, felt totally decedent, best lunch in LA

  1. Thanks for the write up. I heard about the lunch before, but now it is on my priority list.

    I also want to hit up grace's 5 course $55 tasting menu. That is a pretty reasonable price for dinner.

    1. Melange: Do they serve complimentary bottled water at lunch and do you know if they serve lunch on Saturday?
