Dining out in Los Angeles became all the more interesting when David Myers – perhaps our favourite chef in all of Lalaland whose bakery Boule is plucked down from the heavens and inventive offerings at Sona restaurant amazed the masses – unveiled his newest masterpiece; power bistro Comme Ca. This haunt on Melrose has been the reservation of choice for industry bigwigs, food snobs, and all those folks who just have to be around greatness. Cool, comforting, cozy, creative. Myers doesn’t try and reinvent the wheel. Rather, he takes those sumptuous Parisian tastes and manipulates them masterfully. Your palate isn’t being tricked, it’s being romanced. As logic would dictate, the wine list is winning and wonderful, with 20-plus by-the-glass options (or bring your own, knowing there’s a $25 corkage fee). The cocktails are some of the coolest in town. Oh yes, then there’s the food. Coq au vin, boeuf Bourguignon, bouillabaisse, and a dreamy, concise take on steak frites that you’ll dream about a few months later.
