Went last night with a friend and a MS (master somm, none in LA).

Brought our own wine (but list is very good).

Awesome food and a beautiful dining space. Food light, fresh, tasting of itself. Light touch on the seasoning and perfect ingredients.

To start we had the herring, gravlax, mussels, beet salad, artichoke and pork belly with spring peas and morels. All excellent, with the mussels and pork belly sublime.

Next had the lamb chops, swedish meatballs, mushroom risotto, and schnitzel. All phenomenal, I really cannot convey how perfectly executed these were. Complex with lots of ingredients, perfectly plated into a simple whole.

Stellar cheese plate and dessert.

Total bill: $260 for 4. A really good value.

This last year has been a bumper crop for LA restaurants (on the higher end). I would put AK, Gjelina and Church & State in my LA top 10.
