Oh, Grace! - longish

The husband and I went to Grace on Friday and I couldn't have been more impressed. The room is lovely -clean lines in woods and browns with very warm lighting and dramatic chandeliers. The staff was knowlegeable and smart without being the tiniest bit stuffy.

And the food was damn near perfect. We started with some assorted oysters - all very fresh with varying degrees of briny-ness. They are served with the usual sauces plus a champagne granita. Very nice indeed. We also had a special salad of heirloom tomato, greens and bison carpaccio. This was beautifully laid-out and delicious. The tomato was the star - lightly salted with a viniagrette, but the greens and carpaccio were great also.

Mains were wild boar with spaetzle, brussels sprouts and potatoes and Scallops with a white truffle risotto and shitake mushrooms. The boar was smoky and tender and went perfectly with the sides. The scallop dish was incredibly rich but not heavy-handed.

Dessert was a light and very complex napolean. Not usually my thing, but the waiter convinced us to try it and it was amazing.

I haven't been that wowed by a LA restaurant in a very long time. Did I mention that corkage was only $15. Highly recommended.
