Best rustic tart in the LA area?

I started off asking what the best rustic dessert tart was in the LA area, and now I've decided that I don't care if it's sweet or savory. I just want something hand-made (looking rustic and not perfect), leaning towards a French style, fresh (not looking like a plastic dessert in a pastry case), and extremely good. Suggestions? I'm not from LA but will be in town soon for a couple days, so please no lame suggestions. I'm only looking for the creme de la creme.

  1. My pick would be the various seasonal fresh fruit Crostada offered at Bite Bar & Bakery. They are often spectacular!

      Huckleberry's blueberry (& strawberry) crostatas are excellent..albeit $$.

        I would have to say my own, but Huckleberry is really really good. And I'm using Zoe's recipes!

          I'd love to try that if you would share it on the HOME COOKING BOARD!
