Thursday, we had the pleasure of joining the Dolce ladies for our weekly Ladies Who Lunch. As for the restaurant choice of the week, Brit’s pick, Café Was, a French bistro on Vine in Hollywood was Délicieux et chic (delicious and chic) as we say in French. It was too much of a gorgeous, sunny day to sit inside but if you do find yourselves sitting inside the atmosphere is old Hollywood themed and lavishly decorated like Jay Gatsby’s mansion. I highly recommend bringing a hot date.
As for the food, the ladies and I all enjoyed our salad entrées. I ordered the ratatouille because it was too cute to pass up! It was a mixture of grilled eggplant, zucchini, pequillo peppers, tomato, garlic confit, and greens on the side to mix it all in yummy salad. Prices were totally on the affordable side and for those of you who still want the fine dining experience in this economy, they offer the stimulus plan fixed lunch! $12 for soup, entrée, and tasty dessert. AND of course I must mention the steal of the century- 2 martinis for $5!!! Come thirsty!
All in all, Ivan Kane’s Café Was is a must do in the near future! OH, how can I forget the Gateau de pain, a scrumptious bread pudding with a side of vanilla yogurt ice cream. Go submerse yourself in some French flava.
