05/28/2012Little Bear: A Belgian Beer Cafe
Honestly, this is some of the best food I've ever had in the Los Angeles area. The restaurant is a bit difficult to find, tucked on a side street in the heart of east downtown L.A., but if you know the restaurant State & Church, it's just across the street. It's a big red door.So, first let's talk about the beer. The menu is filled with artisan Belgian style beers, both imported and domestic. You can't go wrong, but talk to your waiter about what you like, or what you feel like having, and you'll get a good recommendation. Be bold - the selection changes all the time. I highly recommend the Ommegang Witte, if available - sweet, summery, just great.Then the appetizers. There are several mussel dishes to choose from - just pick one. I love the smoked salmon bruschetta - it's out of this world. And the mushroom risotto ... ay yi. I got a taste of the salmon sandwich and one of the burgers - they're pretty much fantastic. But let me tell you, it's all about the smoked wild boar sausage, with pureed roasted sweet potatoes, black kale and pearl onions. I haven't tasted boar sausage like this since my last meal in Venice (Italy, not the beach town). And if you're not adventurous for the boar, head straight for the grilled smoked salmon and taste a bit of heaven. Seriously, this is my new favorite restaurant.
The staff Alberto and lusia, since moving into the area have always been so accommodating and helpful. I tend to hate appts. And schedules. They were so good to me during a recent surgery, and took me without any hassle even at closing. I mentioned this because I stopped by ran to get a shave on Sunday. It was a few minutes before 400pm. They were fairly busy, so I told Albert I needed to go to cvs and as always he said no problem. I just wanted to thank them. There were a few appointments and walk-in s but it took no more than 10 to 15 tops to take care of me. I thought it was important to mention this because I have never been treated in anyway except with outstanding customer service. Also this person came in and was a walk-in no appt. Was asked to come back 15 minutes and came back walked in got upset left, even though they were taking him after closing. For Christ sake it's Sunday and takes longer to walk or drive around the block, than to wait a few more minutes. So don't let one negative review affect you these guys and girls are great.
Nicole at Henri Salon rocks! She is an exceptional (and fun) hair stylist. Her own hair looks good too.I'm a 29 year old guy in LA and about a year ago I was looking to find a regular hair stylist who makes it easy and enjoyable for me to keep well groomed and looking my best.I stopped by Henri Salon, liked the light/nice space, got a haircut from Nicole, and have been going back ever since. Nicole is professional, has a great personality, and loves what she does. She tells me about new stuff all the time. Nicole listens to detailed requests and handles them really well when I have them but also knows my current look, and brings suggestions, so I can just space out and let her do her thing. When I think I'm done, Nicole fusses over the little things. Eyebrows for example. I generally don't think or ask about those items, but much appreciated! Must also mention scheduling as Nicole is kind when dealing with my hectic schedule.Thanks Nicole! Love all the compliments I get
