Canelé: 99 Essential Restaurants 2013 

Thursday, Feb 28 2013
Comments

Corina Weibel's Atwater Village restaurant is that place every neighborhood deserves but only a few are lucky enough to get: a dependable, family-friendly bistro. You can go to Canelé for a low-key date and get duck confit or a whole grilled branzino, or visit on a weeknight with the kids and dig into comforting boeuf bourguignon at the big, communal table at the front window. At dinner, the cooking is mainly pared-down French and Mediterranean classics: brandade, chicken liver on toast, bistro steak with bordelaise and Pommes Anna. At brunch the California comes out: fried farro with bacon, egg and Sriracha; a breakfast sandwich of fried eggs, braised leeks and romesco. It's one of the best in town. The short, smart, affordable wine list adds to the general feeling that this is a restaurant about hospitality and community, not ego or flash. 3219 Glendale Blvd., Atwater Village; (323) 666-7133, canele-la.com. Tues.-Wed., 5:30-10 p.m.; Thurs.-Sat., 5-10:30 p.m.; Sun., 5-10 p.m. Brunch: Sat.-Sun., 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Entrees $22-$28. Beer and wine.

    L.A. is a smog-challenged, traffic-congested metropolis bustling with not-so-earth-friendly commerce.
