oriel in L.A. designed by etc. for short. / sfgirlbybay

it’s hard to imagine that L.A.’s newest hole in wall hotspot was once a gas station, and that’s because has been designed by the talented team from , who have also put their very sassy signature stamp on and cafe birdie. i love this because not only is its neon-lit location under a freeway overpass unexpected (the vibe is very chinoiserie, if you will), so is its culinary experience — not chinese as you might expect, but classic french fare i love. their bavette served medium rare is to die for (i’ve had it three times, now) and paired with haricot verts with aioli and almonds and their friseé aux lardon you simply can’t go wrong. put on your silkiest , some and cover up with your favorite to fit right in. should you be dining solo, might we suggest a lillet aperitif at the bar and a good read: by caleb johnson — a celebration and a reminder of how the past gets mixed up in thoughts of the future.
