Grace, a chic, perpetually booked restaurant equidistant from El Coyote and its sister restaurant BLD, is the demesne of Neal Fraser, a rock star of L.A. cuisine, a chef with a wobbly, idiosyncratic style that couldn't be further from the finish-fetish crowd pleasers, a detailed, market-oriented sort of New American cooking, heavy on French technique, strong flavors and intricate presentations. The cooking can still be a little rough around the edges at Grace - Fraser's style is pretty improvisational - but this is still tremendously ambitious food, most of it locally sourced. If you're lucky, you may run into a Scottish hare served with a tiny, crisp blackberry pie, a giant, unctuous slab of braised rare-breed pork belly on black rice, or Angus beef tartare mounded atop a miniaturized grilled cheese sandwich saturated with truffles. Unless its all been swept away for a locavore fantasia or a salute to the onset rhubarb season, because that's sometimes the way Fraser rolls. And there are freshly fried doughnuts for dessert. What more could you want?
