La Rive Gauche Restaurant Review

: The décor and menu may be slightly dated, but the old-monied Palos Verdes Peninsula doesn’t attempt to be hip or cutting-edge. This standby has been going strong since 1976, and it fits right in with the manicured Tuscan estates of the area. Diners begin with classic dishes like escargots Bourgogne, coquilles St-Jacques or a satisfying French onion soup. For main courses, consider duck à l’orange, ostrich flambéed with port and brandied cherries, or venison with raspberry sauce. A chocolate soufflé seems the most appropriate way to finish a meal here, where tables topped with pink linen and fresh flowers lie beneath beamed ceilings. With more than 1,000 labels, the wine list includes plenty of celebrated Bordeaux for those looking to splurge. The Sunday Champagne brunch features poached eggs crab Louie in béarnaise sauce.
