|7th & Grand, Downtown LA|
|macaroons including rose, earl grey tea, lilac, strawberry, salted caramel, vanilla and pistachio.|
|they were baking up fresh breads, pastries and things I have only ever read about.|
The ambience in the restaurant was amazing, every kitchen was open so you could watch the chefs preparing the foods. In the back two open stoves burned as a few guys shoveled pizzas in and out.
I had a hard time with the menu because I wanted to try every single little thing. But finally I decided on Seared Ahi Tuna.
The tuna was seared to perfection and the bean paste was interesting and super tasty. The heirloom tomatoes were slightly tangy and paired beautifully with the tuna and bean. I gave this dish a 10/10.

For dessert we ordered some macaroons-- DUH-- and a macchiato.
|drooling. I wanted everything.|
|oh yeah, the sell chocolates too...|
|and these sweet little berry tartlets, which I wanted to devour.|
Our waiter was knowledgable, friendly, and although there was a wait we were seating within 15 minutes. Everything we ordered was amazing. Our only complaint was that it is extremely loud. We literally couldn't talk to each other across the table at certain points. A lot of that has to do with the architecture, and its a small price to pay for the amazing cuisine. Overall this restaurant gets a 9/10 in our book! If you are in LA, go try it!
