First time at La Flor and it lives up to the hype!

Thanks to everyone who posted about this gem over the years. As a lurker back in the day I thought it was some French bakery but I never really paid attention. After doing some homework i went and had some spectacular food. Pricey but very good. This place actually lives up to the hype from Jim and others in the past, just like Difara did.

I had the French toast which was great but would get it with fruit on the side instead of on top. The Mexican hot chocolate was unreal, not too sweet and not too bitter. I tried flautas as an appetizer and they were decent, maybe an off day. I went back and tried the Grilled Chicken sandwich.....heaven on a brioche bun. It made me say to myself this could go head to head with Mary Lou's sandwiches from CHPS. The chipotle mayo was a nice touch but the fresh mozzarell and grilled chicken were so good on their own it wasnt even needed. I also had a quesadilla that wasnt fried which was different from what Im used too but good in its own way.

I think I have found my new lunch spot. I will be trying the cesar salad next even though the anchovies scare me to death. Its already in the dressing so it cant be removed. Anything else I should try please let me know.
