I read all the postings about restaurants in the GasLamp district before I joined my husband at a conference at the Omni. I finally gave him good directions to Cafe Chloe, which he enjoyed for breakfast. He LOVED the coffee!
Friday night, we went to Cowboy Star. We split the fried sweetbread appetizer - my only complaint was that there was not more sweetbread. Otherwise, delish! Then we shared the porterhouse for two. EXCELLENT! They served it rare, like we ordered. They gave me a choice of veggies - I had spinach, he had peas. Came with mashed potatoes. I ordered bone marrow. The waiter forget to bring it so when I asked he brought it on the house. Closest thing to my fave dinner in Paris at L'AOC.
Next day we had breakfast at JSix. Good service - waiter always kept our water and coffee filled. The house smoked salmon was great.
We went to Neighborhood for lunch. Amazing selection of beers. Very good pub food! Friendly service. Wish I had something like this in my 'hood - West LA.
Dinner at Cafe Chloe. Another very good meal. Ordered a bacon tarte appetizer that was okay. Tomato soup was delicious, with a hint of spice. I had the steak frites. Fries are as addictive as people wrote! Hubby had the duck, which he demolished.
Next day, Sunday, we ate at Bread on Market. Okay pastries and a delicious cuban sandwich. Good coffee. Could be cleaner inside. The flowers on the tables were covered in gnats.
We also got ribeyes steaks at the butcher shop at Cowboy Star. Had them for dinner at home in LA. Excellent meat though lacking the in great crust we had at the restaurant!
Again, thank you fellow Chowhounds!
