Mélisse Review

In a city where informality reigns, this is one of L.A.'s more dressy, but not stuffy, restaurants. The dining room is contemporary yet elegant, with well-spaced tables topped with flowers and fine china. Chef-owner Josiah Citrin enhances his modern French cooking with seasonal California produce. Consider seared sweet white corn ravioli in brown butter–truffle froth, lobster bolognese, and elegant tableside presentations of Dover sole and stuffed rotisserie chicken. The cheese cart is packed with domestic and European selections. The tasting menus offered here including a creative vegetarian option.

    Mélisse Review

    So I ate at Melisse about, 2 months ago and it was fantastic! On Wednesday there is a deal going on on Preferdine.com ($50 for $100 at Malisse) that I’m really excited for – I love a good deal at a restaurant that I had a good experience with.
