Yes, there’s the omelet: the egg itself presented as pure texture, a lightly frothy, yellow solid with absolutely no visual or tactile clue that it has ever touched a pan, its interior gloriously creamy. And there’s the burger: a mashup of cultures, taking inspiration from the classic American cheeseburger as well as from chef Ludo Lefebvre’s homeland in the form of Bordelaise sauce with a smidge of foie gras and piles of caramelized onions. There’s the escargot, drenched in butter. The croque-monsieur, like everything here, is better than the actual Parisian food it aims to parrot. In this tiny slot of a space, Lefebvre has created a slice of Paris in a former Thai restaurant in a strip mall, a casual, bustling room that feels like an everyday celebration. It is simultaneously one of the most modest and most ambitious restaurants L.A. can claim. It’s a love letter to another city, written in food, by one of our greatest culinary poets. —Besha Rodell
