Whether for a special-occasion prix fixe meal or casual bistro dinner with friends, French food, like thick cream, still rises to the top.

Maison Giraud, Los Angeles

5 of 26

Don’t let the simple décor of this Pacific Palisades bistro-bakery combo lower your expectations. Whether you opt for croque monsieur, quiche, or a classic cocotte—a meal served in its own mini casserole—the food here is easygoing and expertly prepared by French-trained chef/owner Alain Giraud, who has helmed some of L.A’s best (Bastide and Anisette). The fresh pain au chocolat is reason enough for an early-morning wake-up call. maison-giraud.com
