Do you remember watching old movies and tv shows where people threw “Bon Voyage” parties? And they were always in the theme of where the couple was going. Well we decided to throw our good friend Carolina a bon voyage party before she leaves for Argentina. Instead of an Argentinean theme, we decided on Little Next Door which is a favorite among all my friends! This is a little French haven on 3rd street. Gorgeously decorated, fabulous eats, and the patio is perfect for any occasion.
Um, yeah… This is my hibiscus champagne cocktail. Could it be any prettier? And yes, that is a real hibiscus flower inside that tastes divine! There was plenty of food ordered to share, but I’m going to share with you the plates that were closest to me These are fried squash blossoms stuffed with cheese. (I didn’t eat them, but they are super pretty and everyone raved.)
I also usually get the soup when I’m there. There are two soups of the day and at least one is always vegan. Tonight, I got the roasted tomato bisque, but did I get a photo? Of course not… But I did snap some super cute pics of the babies in attendance! (ps I feel so old to have so many friends with babies!) Here is Tania with Liat:
Now the lowdown on Little Next Door.
*Be sure you sit outside. The patio is so lovely with blue, white and gold trim. You will instantly be transported to a glamourous far away place!
*Weekdays between 4pm and 7pm beer and wine is 30% off
*On that note, they do a lunch and dinner special which includes soup or salad, an entree and a macaroon for a set price.
*Everything I’ve had on the menu is fabulous! You can’t go wrong. I hear their burger is one of the best in town, but of course, I’ll let you be the judge.
*Make sure you end the meal with one of their many dessert options. I love just getting a little macaroon to end the meal.
*Little Next Door is the sister restaurant to The Little Door which is next door! If you want something super fancy and incredible head over there! The food and ambiance are to die for. But if you are looking for that same quality, but in a more laid back setting, Little Next Door is the place for you.
PS they also do catering and picnic baskets which are great for the Hollywood Bowl.
