One of my favorite restaurants in LA for a fun time and a great place to bring friends. As it became less trendy, it became easier to get a table. Unfortunately they are now closing this location.

My favorite, although not cheap, on a recent visit was the lamb chops in mole' sauce. Worth the price - marvelous taste! The passion fruit dessert was great! Definitely want to go back!
