Located in the loading dock of the Biscuit Lofts in DTLA's Arts District, chef Tony Esnault's French bistro serves classic fare—steak frites, escargot, steak tartare and more—to Angelenos with big budgets and a taste for nuanced interiors (think: white subway tiles and leather banquettes). Start with a seasonal cocktail and oysters on the half shell, then progress to housemade charcuterie and savory tartes. Don't miss the weekday meal-deal: a three-course lunch for a steal at $21. With a French-heavy wine selection, proper fromage option and alfresco dining, it's a little slice of Paris in the middle of Downtown.

This is a lovely restaurant with strung lights overhead and a laid-back vibe. We had the mussels and they were outstanding (too many to finish, the appetizer portion is more than enough for an entree!), and tried a special kumquat cocktail that was perfectly balanced and dangerously delicious.
