Yesterday to celebrate Leg Liberation Day, le mari took me to lunch at comme Ça Brasserie in West Hollywood. We started with a glass of the Roderer Estate champagne. The Croque Monsier practically jumped off the menu at me, so I knew that's what I'd be ordering, even though there might be more intruiging options. And I was not sorry. It was the most fabulous CM I've ever enjoyed. Le mari ordered the Comme Ça Burger and was not disappointed. For dessert I had the Apple Tarte Tartin and he had the chocolate Brioche pudding, both of which were served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream over ground pistacios and were fabulous.
Sevice overall was great, though by the time we ordered dessert, the place was packed and it did take a while for our desserts to come out. As with all LA restaurants, the noise level is high once tables start to fill up.
Comme Ça is on Melose Avenue just east of La Cienaga. Deux thumbs up!
