Le petit four is located at the very hip sunset plaza. You can eat either inside or outside. Inside, the restaurant is quite comfortable. Outside, while the terrace is significantly less comfortable (cramped tables, noisy street) the atmosphere below the yellow awnings is very pleasant. Don’t be surprise if a tourist bus stop by for pictures, Le petit four is a favorite eating spot of the entertainment industry.
While the service was relatively good, they certainly could do with more staff.
I started with a tomato gazpacho. The gazpacho was served mostly blended in a large soup plate. Lightly spicy, it was very refreshing.
As main course, I had the onglet (French for hanger steak). The onglet was served with an excellent shallot and wine sauce and accompanied by French fries with herbes de Provence. Served medium rare to keep it tender, the meat was tender and tasty. The Herbes de provence (a blend of dried aromatic herbs invented in the 1970s in Provence) add a very nice twist to the French fries.
For desert, we were asked to choose from their very large desert platter. I had a very classic creme caramel. The creme caramel, small and tasty, was very good. A light refreshing end to the meal.
Value for money: 3.5/5
Around $40, including drinks (ice tea, espresso) and tip. Considering the neighborhood and the food, Le petit four offers a very good value for money. I’ve been going there regularly and it is still one of my favorite brunch spot. See you there!
