Why We Love It
- Angelenos get first dibs on snagging a table at Ansel's premier dinner restaurant, named after the chef's first NYC kitchen address
- In his review, the late Jonathan Gold highlights the Pull-Apart Sweet Corn “Elotes” Milk Bread and “Triple Sun” Carbonara
- Bringing a “chemist’s precision to the savory kitchen” (LA Times), the James Beard award-winning chef is hoping to emphasize “food that people will remember” rather than a specific style (Variety)
- From the "modern, elegant and slightly whimsical" (Zagat) second-floor dining space, catch treetop views overlooking the Grove's main thoroughfare
Travelzoo Tip: Head downstairs to the bakery on your way out to pick up some treats to-go: the Cronut®, DKA (Dominique’s Kouign Amann), Cookie Shot, Frozen S'more and more.
