I just had dinner at Animal restaurant and absolutely loved it! we ordered the foie gras appetizer, poutine, pork belly with kimchee, basque melted cheese, ribs, loco moco and fried quail. Outstanding! not to mention the prices were very reasonable and the ambience was great, not too pretentious. I have been searching for places like this in LA. Does anyone have any other suggestions on a restaurant that is comparable? Thank you!
