Le Saint Amour

charcuterie plate

I was in Culver City two nights in a row last week. First, I had a wild time at Rush Street. Then I was off to dinner with a friend at Le Saint Amour.

Walking in, I spotted the oysters and kept thinking about them all night. I’ll have to go back for some as my dining companion wasn’t too keen on them though she did have mussels as her meal. I suppose there’s something rather ugly about raw quivering grayish blobs. But they are oh-so-good!

entrecote bernaise

I had the ribeye with the Bernaise sauce. It was well-flavored and didn’t even need the sauce. The fries were crispy though I was starting to miss my veggies.

A great meal deserves a sweet ending. When the chocolate volcano was mentioned, of course we had to have it though sometimes I don’t think molten lava cakes are that great (cake can be too dry with ooey bad chocolate). But Le Saint Amour’s was le perfection. A warm moist cake served with a great vanilla ice cream and ripe strawberries.

I really liked this Parisian bistro not far from the main downtown in Culver City. I’m glad to have another dining option in the area. And I can’t wait to get their oysters.
