Outside of the restaurant is an amazing garden and fountains and some tables and inside the kitchen and bar area are both open to the tables. Nothing is a mystery here and since the whole layout is beautifully designed, being able to see it all is lovely.

We started with the chilled tomatillo soup with sweet corn in it and a delicious little nugget that I wish I knew exactly what it was. Something corn bread, cheese-ish.
Then we ordered the harissa scramble with sun dried tomatoes, crispy onions on top, goat cheese, and all sorts of deliciousness and the waffle BLT that was more amazing than words or photos can describe.
My oh my, there was nothing to complain about! If you are in LA over the weekend you must find this gem tucked into the produce district of downtown. You will not regret it!
