    While it just says "French Toast" on the menu, this is the classic "Pain Perdu" version you will not forget. Soaked brioche and then cooked in an oven to perfection. Served up with Cream and berries.

    The vegetarian cliche is fantastic. The soups are light and delicious. The croissants are Devine. I always feel well take. Care of. Only skip the kids grilled cheese, they'll be disappointed.

    Giraud's kitchen excels in simple luxuries: an eggshell, hollowed out and refilled with egg custard and savory chantilly and topped with caviar. Read more

    L.A.'s best croissants — these things are phenomena unto themselves, essentially cultured French butter given the powers of crunch and flake and heft. Read more

    Order chocolate soufflé ahead of time (takes 20 mins) big enough for two or even four to taste.

    Drove a long way to try them out--they were just closing for lunch--asked if they c'd accommodate me (it is pouring rain)...they were wry French and said no... This is a brand new restaurant ....
