Always wanted to find a phenomenal place you can rave about and discover for your friends? I've got it...some friends of mine who work across the street discovered it.
Pshaw's Bistro in Hollywood (6099 W. Sunset Blvd, 323-871-2546
The owner was a successful accountant who left his professional to pursue his dream. Across from Paramount Studios, and around the corner from Roscoe's - this second story hideaway is impossible to find if you don't know about it.
But boy is the search worth it. This past year my wife and I had the opportuntiy to eat at the best restaurants from Hong Kong to Paris and believe it or not - THIS is our favorite. His works are a cross between French Quarter and Northern Italian Cusine. Unique and unbelievable.
You HAVE to try the Cream of Mushroom Appetizer and either the Seafood Crepe, or Tenderloin Medallions.
He nearly went out of business within a few months of opening (they've only been there 1 1/2 years) until my friend began taking some of the studio execs over after work.
Post your experience if you agree, this may be the best food in LA.
