Food Porn Friday | A|O|C Restaurant and Wine Bar | Los Angeles

Friday, May 04, 2012


Happy Happy Friday y’all!
Hope your weekend is getting off to the most beautiful start!
I really love that LA is just a short car ride away. Living in the ‘burbs sure does have its perks when I’m frequently beckoned to the city to eat, shop, and repeat. Doesn’t hurt that the boy works smack dab in the midst of 90210, sure makes researching good eats that much sweeter when I know all the hotspots are on the west side. Today’s food porn comes courtesy of A|O|C, brainchild of Chef Suzanne Goin and Sommelier Caroline Styne, both of Lucques fame. 

Clams with sherry and garlic toast

Lamb osso buco, saffron, tomato, green romesco

Market fish (white fish, forgot the name sorry!), artichoke, cardoons, and meyer lemon.

Brioche with prosciutto, gruyere, and sunny side-up egg

If you’ve been following Haute Khuuture or Food Porn Fridays for a while, you’d know that my true weakness/vice/kryptonite is cheese. Good ol’ fatty, stinky, European cheese. Start my dinner off with a cheese platter and you’re a shoe-in for 4 stars in my book. End it with another decadent cheesy dessert plate and you’ve just skyrocketed to 5 friggin’ stars. Sprinkle in some seafood, a bit of charcuterie, bloody red meat, a chilled carafe of wine and you’ve got me beggin’ you for mercy Merci A|O|C!

*Insider's tip: You wouldn't know it from the exterior, but the venue is HUGE. Super modern design (c/o Barbara Barry) with over 4 different dining areas to serve intimate date nights for 2 or party central for you and 20 of your closest friends. Does it really get any better than gourment French tapas to satiate a mixture of palettes? I don't think so dude...book your next party HERE and you won't be disappointed!*

TGIF y'all!
