Brentwood Cafe last night

Wayno | Apr 12, 2014 12:14 PM

Hit up the café last night for a quick dinner and was very pleased. The long list of specials included a lobster roll. It was served "Maine style" - cold, with mayo, rather than warm, with drawn butter (Connecticut style). It was very good; much better quality chunks of lobster meat than I've gotten from the Lobstah Truck or from Cousins, and probably a bit better than BPO - and, at $18.50, it was almost 6 bucks cheaper than BPO. The lobster meat didn't include any of the rubbery parts from the end of the claws. SO had the grass fed, organic burger. I can't really opine about it since she ordered it medium-well and it came exactly as she wanted it; so she loved it and thought it was perfect. Cooked that much, it could have been a ground Coach purse on a bun. After having the perfect burger the day before at Belcampo, I didn't need to tempt the burger fates. But the generous portion of fries that came with our dishes were among the best I've had in LA. I didn't even want fries and ordered the new potato salad instead (and it was good), but they also brought me fries by mistake and I couldn't stop eating them. They were perfect.
