First time to LPB, and I was a little scared after reading about the tight seating ("translating the menu for the Japenese people at the next table that seemed like they were at the same table because the tables are so close together…") But it wasn’t crowded at all for a Monday lunch, and we got a nice booth. It was quite enjoyable.
The Merquez sausage was among the best I’ve ever tasted. It was quite greasy, but the flavor was pungent, delicious. It’s served with a mountain of shoestring French fries that were done perfectly, a little crispy, hot and tasty.
The salmon looked good, and it was announced by my host that the sauce was divine.
Service was outstanding, price was average (about $20 per person with sparkling water). I’ll be back.
