Le Petit Paris

Le Petit Paris is a beautiful French restaurant that seats over 300 tables in on setting. I have visited once on their grand opening day, and I was excited to return to see what changes have been made! My friends and I came in during lunch time, and the decor was gorgeous as always. The high vaulted ceilings with chandeliers make it the perfect date spot or a great time with friends, and they even have a live DJ at night on the weekends playing disco and French house! 

After sitting, we started out with some drinks and appetizers. We got a homemade crostini with cream cheese truffle topped with pesto sauce that is included with every table. This was addicting to me as I love anything cream cheese! For appetizers, we got the foie gras, sea bass ceviche, and white and green asparagus with a hollandaise sauce. I loved the foie gras as it was creamy and decadent, and a hint of sweet always pairs well with the foie. The sea bass ceviche was very refreshing and light, and I loved the textures of salsa added so it wasn't al soft. Our friend was vegan, and she really enjoyed her asparagus! Perfect start to our meal!  

Next up- the white truffle pizza. We had actually requested this one as it looked AMAZING, and it was definitely up to par! Instead of using regular cheese, Chef Jeremie uses a mixture of cheese and cream cheese which made it super creamy! They are also very generous with the white truffle, and this literally tasted like the pizza of my dreams! I have included two photos, as one is not enough! 

For entrees, we got the Saffron Scallops Risotto with peas and chorizo, Vegetables Linguini (vegan), and the "Le Petit Paris" Signature Cheeseburger with bacon and french fries. First of all, let me state that French people does fries best! Makes sense as it's called French fries... but we were obsessed with these fries! We could not stop eating it even though we were extremely full, and the fries were super crispy on the outside yet steaming hot and soft on the inside. On to the actual food- the risotto was delectable! The scallops were perfectly seared, and the risotto had a nice mixture of saffron in it. The vegetable linguini was tossed in a light oil sauce which was divine! Last but not least, the cheeseburger. Juicy, succulent meat with cheese oozing everywhere... Life cannot get any better. At this point, we were way too full, so we had to take some food home. 

We did end up taking a few photos of the dessert as they were so cute, but we were way too full for dessert as we ate so much! Thank you Chef Jeremie as well as the rest of restaurant for the hospitality, we had a fantastic time at Le Petit Paris! Can't wait to return~

Le Petit Paris is a brand new French restaurant located in a historic hotel building that will be sure  to become LA's hottest new restaurant. The atmosphere, which was sophisticated and elegant with a French accent, was stunning- they had crystal chandeliers, a gorgeous grand staircase, and beautiful decor throughout. 

We came in on grand opening day, and we were served complementary salmon rilette and champagne with cream of cassis. The salmon rilette with toast was a nice start to our meal, and the champagne was the perfect touch at the end.

After we ordered, we received bread to go along with the olive oil and vinegar on the table. I wanted to come here early (before 11AM) for their lobster egg benedict ($26) that is only served during breakfast. Waking up early was most definitely worth it. The bread on the bottom was perfectly toasted- you could taste the butter, and the bread was soft on the inside but with a nice light crunch on the exterior. So heavenly! The eggs were poached just how I like them- the yolk was nice and runny on the inside. The lobster really finished the egg benedict nicely, and I could not have asked for a better breakfast! 

The steak tartare ($20) came with fries and salad, and it was another phenomenal dish. It was actually a lot larger than we expected, and we had trouble finishing all of it. The steak was very well seasoned, and went well with the fries and salad. I would recommend ordering their fries, they really do it right here! 

Service was fantastic- although they had a staff meeting at the time, the server ensured that our table was fine and that we had everything we needed. A lot of the employees here are French so it was really nice hearing the dish names said the correct way! 

The details that the restaurant put into everything really impressed me- this is probably the best grand opening I've been to! From nice, fresh roses as table decor to glasses of champagne to enjoy with friends, Le Petit Paris has really gotten everything down. I'm so glad they're done with renovations, this restaurant is most definitely worth checking out!
