Had lunch today at Bloom Cafe, the newish place on Pico where Posh and Sierra Bonita Cafes used to sit side by side. Who did I run into but Arnaud Palatan, the former owner of Pastis the French Bistro on Beverly that I like so much?
He just opened the place around 2 weeks ago or so. Done in sort of avocado green and white. Features breakfast and lunch from 8-4 every day, with around 20 seats outdoors, and maybe half again that many inside.
Breakfast items are interestingly different in a healthy-type of way. Brioche, whole wheat, no white, walnut raisin, etc. types of goodness. 6-8 different salads, interesting sounding sandwiches, even fish tacos on wheat tortillas, and a whole host of slightly different dishes that really sounded appealing.
Had just returned from Philharmonic rehearsal so was thinking lunch, sort of, and thus had eggs and veggie links(really good), with a green salad and passed on any bread product, but had a very good cup of coffee.
Companion raved about the poached egg dish and the cafe au lait.
Total $16.51 plus tip.
Former Posh space will become their pizza and juice/smoothies/to go section in next few weeks when construction is completed.
