frenchiness in culver city

“We want to take you to a new place for breakfast,” my dad told me this morning.  “It’s your kind of place.”  “What does that mean, ‘my kind of place?'” I asked.  “I don’t know.  It’s just your kind of place.”

Enter, Bistro Laurent in Culver City.  Across the street from the LA Weekly office on Sepulveda, in a restaurant that used to be the neighborhood sushi bar for years, BL is a comfortable, cozy  cafe serving dishes using organic fruits, vegetables, eggs and meat.

Bright, and very friendly, I could not disagree with my dad that this was my kind of place.  Across the front window, are the letters, “YES.”  I asked our waiter what that meant, and he smiled and said, “It’s better than, ‘NO!”  After talking to Manager Julien about the eight month restaurant and the house-baked French pastries (which seems to be a dying luxury), I asked him about the YES.  “We had a lot of problems getting the permits to open, which took us four months longer than expected.  So when we finally DID open, it was like, “YES!”

So if you’re in the neighborhood and you’re hungry, stop by.  If you’re there for breakfast, The Benedicte is delicious – perfectly poached eggs and Canadian bacon atop their fresh-from-the-oven croissant and smothered with their housemade Hollandaise sauce.  And don’t forget the double shot espresso.
