I've been meaning to share my latest resto-recc with you all but I've had zero time to get to it! We recently had brunch with friends in LA at this quaint little Parisian bistro called Little Next Door.
The minute we sat down we were served bread and a very aromatic, homemade balsamic vinegar/oil blend [perfect for our pretend getaway to France]. We were really fixed on having a breakfast oriented brunch rather than a lunch brunch so we opted for egg dishes. We split the smoked salmon eggs benedict and wild mushroom eggs benedict, along with a cappuccino [served in a soup bowl and just okay]. Initially I was worried because the portions didn't look like they would be enough but they actually ended up being just right. The hollandaise sauce on both of dishes were insanely flavored and probably one of the best sauces I've had with eggs. As for the eggs, they were perfectly cooked and placed atop of toasted bread rather than an English muffin. The salmon was fresh and loaded in terms of quantity. I also had a light salad on the side with a vinaigrette dressing [tasty] and my husband got the side of shoestring fries - so flavorful and addicting that I think we ordered another side of fries.
The ambiance here really cannot be beat; it's so enchanting and thoroughly mimics a Parisian bistro [decor and all]. There's also an outdoor patio with grapevines that form as a natural roof, but there's usually a longer wait time to be seated outdoors.
Overall, I would recommend Little Next Door to anyone in search for a new brunch spot in the Beverly Grove area of Los Angeles. I will definitely be coming back for more savory and sweet treats!
