This past weekend I had reason to stop in at Les Noces de Figaro in DTLA. The place is a wonderfully restored bit of Los Angeles history. In its first life it served as a cafeteria, the marble and terrazo floors have been restored with care. Its really quite the sight to behold, the current iteration is a very nice 1930’s style French Bistro.
We were actually going in for a meeting up on the mezzanine level meeting and I wanted a little something to tide me over. On the recommendation of @Ruth666, former blogger here I grabbed the Almond Croissant. IT was terrific. The usual butter layers of paper thin melt in your mouth bread with a big honkin’ wad of marizpan in the middle. As if that weren’t enough, to drive home the point this was all about the nut…it was encrusted in slivered almonds. Washed it all down with a cup of “Americano”. My gawd was that good.
Based on that one simple perfectly executed croissant I’ll be back to try a dinner there sometime soon.
