Los Angeles, CA– The culinary landscape of downtown Los Angeles is so vast and varied that it takes a true superstar to stand out from the fray. Faith & Flower opened in April of 2014 and was soon named as an Esquire magazine honoree for “Best New Restaurant” and winner of “Cocktail of the Year.” Serving dinner, cocktails, lunch and now brunch on weekends, Faith & Flower offers diners a contemporary twist on classic, globally inspired cuisine that features seasonal market-driven ingredients. Both charming and clubby, the restaurant is perfectly suited for a business luncheon, special occasion, or a festive lunch or brunch on weekends.
For lunch, we suggest starting off with something light to share from the Raw Bar like the perfectly balanced Kanpachi Ceviche that is served with Kennebec potato chips. An absolute must is the Deviled Jidori Eggs appetizer that contains Kimchee topped with Korean chili and black sesame. Another appetizer of note is the Tempura Fried Green Beans that come with a tangy Chermoula dipping sauce.
The main course offerings are tremendous with items including a Roasted Pork Loin Sandwich, 8 Ounce Mesquite Grilled Burger with goat cheese, Grilled Jidori Hen Breast, Wood Oven Roasted Skirt Steak, and various pizzas and pastas. We were in the mood for fish, so we ordered the savory Pan Seared Rainbow Trout on a cushion of insanely flavorful smoked potato fondue topped with a colorful celery root and radish salad.
Make sure you save room for the light and fluffy Strawberry Cake that contains vanilla buttercream, rhubarb gel and strawberry jam. This dessert is just perfect for these hot Summer temps as are the Ice Cream Pops in your choice of pistachio or hazelnut. If chocolate is your thing, try the Milk Chocolate Mousse with brandied cherries, hazelnut feuilletine and praline cremeux.
Faith & Flower serves dinner Monday through Thursday from 5:30 PM to 10 PM, and until 11 PM Friday through Saturday. Lunch is available Monday through Friday from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM. Brunch is available Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM.
