THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Girasol Restaurant Review

: Girasol means sunflower in Spanish, and this modern, rustic restaurant in Studio City is indeed a bright blossom that towers above many of the other neighborhood eateries. "Top Chef" alum CJ Jacobson has left the restaurant and former chef de cuisine Justin Abram has become the executive chef. Look for a new, revamped menu coming soon. The refined, seasonal California fare has included a number of interesting and well-crafted small plates, such as the octopus salad nestled with long-roasted eggplant and finished with rosemary ash oil and toasted lovage. Tender braised leg of lamb offset by crispy kale and plum has appeared among the mains, and the signature dish is whole fried red snapper, which arrives propped up like it was flash-cooked mid-swim. Desserts are also inventive and intriguing, like an olive oil cake with crème fraîche, local peaches, crystallized fennel and rosemary.
