Great food, beautiful little French bistro-style cafe and wine bar. Nice neighborhood-feel. Fresh selection of sandwiches, pastries, and awesome apple toast. They seem to need more help in the kitchen though.... (more)

Banquette is one of the coolest, most unique restaurants around. Hidden in the old bank district of downtown LA, it is hidden slice of a Parisian bistro. I was able to share a pitcher of wine with friends over great... (more)
