Terrine–Foodie Birthday Lunch for January, 2016

Entrance from the back alley where valet parking is located. This opens directly onto the patio area.

We started out our fourth year of lunches on beautiful day at West Hollywood’s Terrine.  Terrine is a California brasserie that combines classic French dishes with a Californian flair.  Helmed by Chef Kris Morningstar, Terrine’s seasonal cuisine served on their lovely patio was the perfect setting for our first lunch of 2016.  We were treated to blue skies, mild temperatures and no sign of El Nino’s anticipated rain clouds!

Avocado Toast--Tarragon Salsa Verde, Meyer Lemon, Radish. There is a lot of avocado toast around town and this version is delicious and yet, different enough to be interesting and unique.
