310 lounge and bistro

I have been off this board for a while, so perhaps this "review" is redundant: but I had an extremely good meal at 310 lounge and bistro (Pico and Centinela) on Friday night. Salads were excellent (I was interested in the version of the pear and arugula standard ordered by mu friend--two little pear halves filled with browned cheese sitting next to a small mound of arugula leaves). The New Zealand salmon was perfect, surrounded by artichoke and ravioli stuffed with ?--I seem to remember cheese and orange flavor--; anyhow, really different and delicious. My friend had the special white fish, with mushrooms, leeks, and apples--odd-sounding maybe but also superb. We split a wonderful Babanas Foster for dessert. Food only without tip came to $84. Not cheap, but not too bad and on the whole worth it. Oh yes--the bread, made on the premises, was especially good.

The one bad note: I arrived at 6 and said my friend had made the reservation. The place was virtually empty, and the hostess, who seemed something of a sourpuss generally, had no record of the reservation and was reluctant to seat me me until my friend arrived. Pleading the availability tables, and I guess considering my (relative) age, I managed to wangle a seat, and everyone else was extremely pleasant from then on. It turned out that my friend had unknowingly called Josie's by mistake, so the hostess was correct to that extent, but still, it started things off on a very bad note.

I will definitely return to 310.
