A few weeks ago, I was able to meet up with Weezermonkey for lunch (yay!) and we decided to check out Redbird, a newly opened restaurant in DTLA. The space is formerly the Vibiana Cathedral on the outskirts of Little Tokyo so needless to say, it's well-lit and gorgeous. The day was hot, so we opted to go for a lighter lunch. And I just realized that the above photo was taken by her.
new caledonia shrimp, grits, cocoa nib chipotle mole
burrata salad, sweet and sour pears, duck proscuitto, pistachio, red watercress
gnocchetti sardi, Maine lobster, black trumpets, nettles, tomato confit
grilled prime hanger steak, crushed peewee potatoes, wild broccoli, black garlic gremolata
A bit on the pricey side but all-in-all a great lunch! The hanger steak was amazing ... well cooked and tender. It was probably the best deal on the menu for lunch. The chicken potpie also looked really good but the weather was way too hot to have potpie. Too bad we skipped dessert cause it would have been interesting to see if the greatness would continue. Until next time ...
Can't wait to try the next place with you, Weezermonkey!
