One Delish Dish at “The Little Next Door”

9 May

Every time I’m at El Carmen fulfilling my incessant taco & margarita craving, I always seem to catch myself peeking over at the bustling patio next door.  Any restaurant overflowing with lively patrons always intrigues me, so needless to say, this wonderful French bistro immediately caught my eye. 

I finally had the pleasure of eating at The Little Next Door and my palate was jumping for joy.  This great restaurant not only had the adorably inviting decor of a traditional Parisian bistro or pâtisserie  (even down to the woven chairs and authentically Frenchie waiters), but it also had some amazing cuisine to support the ambiance.  

 Our Dinner:

Appetizers   Chef’s Special (cured meats, pate and yummy cheese plate)

                             Grilled Calamari Salad

                             Creole Soup (with shrimp and crisped bacon)

Entrees         Lamb Couscous (w/zucchini, carrots, garbanzo beans)

                            Steak au poivre (grilled skirt steak w/green peppercorn sauce)

                            Moules-frites (creamy white whine and shallot steamed mussels)

Dessert        Assortment of macaroons: Coconut, Lavender, Chocolate, Praline, Coffee,  Pistachio, Cookies & Cream

Outside patio area - great place for brunch or an early dinner

Amazing charcuterie and cheese plate

Gettin down on these succulent bad boys (aka Moules-frites)

Wine and moules make her pensive...

The steak screamed out "Eat Me," so we did...

Digging into the tasty treats

The Little Next Door – 8164 W 3rd Street Los Angeles – (323) 951-1010

I will most definitely be back again for dinner or a famous Little Next Door brunch!

    Alia! The Bistro looks great. My favorite to order next time in LA, you guessed, Assiette de Charcuteries with its, what looks like Jambon de Parme, and Jambon de Bayonne and other goodies, and those Cornichons ! and if those Jambons don’t have enough fat in them, I will load my baguette with butter, hopefully the baguette is fresh and Crispy, I will have a lightly chilled Cotes Du Rhone to down it all. As for the Macarons, I think I will stick to my Buddy’s Vincent and Thierry’s at Opera, here in Provencial San Diego, I think th y make the best Macarons next to La Duree (Spelliing), and possibly some of the best deserts for that matter. For sure THE LITTLE NEXT DOOR, next time in the City Of Angels.

    […] for those of you who don’t, it’s probably obvious by now that between this post and my Little Next Door post, I have a slight love affair with France.  It’s true, I admire the French because of how […]
