La Rive Gauche Restaurant Review

: Décor and the 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 1973, and it fits right in with the manicured Tuscan estates of the area. Diners begin with classic dishes like escargots Bourgogne, French country venison pâté 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 lunchtime crowd gathers to enjoy special afternoon-only options like gazpacho and seafood crêpes. Sunday Champagne brunch features items like poached eggs crab Louie in béarnaise sauce.
