When I went to Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne’s (Lucques, A.O.C) new restaurant Tavern in Brentwood last week, I had to stop myself from filling up on the bread.


It was so good, but I had to save room for the actual meal. At the end of the dinner, I asked where it had come from. Easy enough: it is baked on premises daily. Every night, three bakers arrive at 8 pm and bake ten different varieties of delicious breads until 5 am. The good news is that they are available for purchase to take home.


We are currently featuring Tavern as the Los Angeles Restaurant of the Week.

  1. Atmosphere couldn’t be nicer…good service and comfortable seating.

    The food however was disappointing…Thai Steak salad was tough and not tasty…and the greens were unappetizing…had some black spots…no variety….the lemongrass should have been more plentiful as it was the pizazz in this otherwise blah salad.

    I will try one more time, as I liked the venue.
