The wonderful "Le Saint Amour" in Culver City reportedly (hopefully just temporarily!) closed

Cinnamon | Jan 22, 2012 10:09 PM

There are articles on L.A. Eater and GrubStreet noting that it's closed and they have a pic of an ownership application change in the window for Le Faubourg LLC. (Still associated with the woman who owned it, reportedly, if not her chef husband. Don't know if that means anything though.)

This was easily my favorite go-out restaurant in L.A., with wonderful food, across-the-board terrific wait staff and easy ambiance. I was last there New Year's Eve with my husband and all looked well - we have been regulars.

Le Saint Amour has been so warm and inviting, down to the perfectly French golden tone of wood they chose for the floors/counters and the explanations of how things are made. It will be a real loss to the neighborhood ... and moi ... if they don't open again under same or similar ownership.

A big thank you for the terrific food, attentiveness, extra olives and endless string of Diet Cokes. I've got to figure out how to replicate or find those olives.
