This week The Lady of Virbilia files her report on 2-month old Le Saint Amour in Culver City. The casual French bistro reminds her of time spent in Paris with its "authentic atmosphere," house-made charcuterie, and "broad outdoor terrace," but overall the food it just okay:
The cooking here is the kind you'd find in any everyday brasserie in Paris, and like many of those average places, though more attention to detail and better ingredients would certainly improve the food, they would also probably result in higher prices.There are some dishes she likes, and the restaurant gets credit for its "modest" prices," but overall this typical French bistro is only worth a single star.
