This casual French brasserie from chef David Myers resides amidst a sea of upscale clothing shops in West Hollywood. The dining space has cushioned banquette seating and hallways lined with food-centric blackboard art. Hearty comfort food includes crispy skate Grenobloise, braised lamb shank with Moroccan couscous, and coq au vin. Myers and chef Kuniko Yagi augment the menu with plats du jour (daily specials) like Wednesday’s duck breast and Saturday’s pork chop. The bar helped to launch L.A.’s interest in craft cocktails, and fresh juices and house-made syrups still contribute to drinks like Ross Collins, a “tall & refreshing” rye cocktail, or modern classics like the Penicillin.
