Comme Ca in West Hollywood launched their version of a happy hour two months ago with the rotating Hourglass Menu of outrageous well thought out French treats and $5-$8 beer and wine to accompany their already existent dinner menu. To celebrate they invited some of LA’s foodies to join them in sampling some bites and sips. Full disclosure, I totally bailed on my current vegan reign and went all out on the pulled pork sliders with pickled shallots and arugula and the irresistible mini quail egg croque monsieur (pictured). I have decided that once or twice a month I get to indulge the persistent foodie inside and ignore healthy eating habits. As long as the universe is going to withhold Paris* from me for the time being I will fully indulge in croques and fois gras when the opportunity arises. Life is short so I am fully down for the occasional indulgent meal and highly recommend it. The drinks were phenomenal as well. There was one called The East that isn’t on the menu but you can ask for it by name. It’s made up of gin, mint, lime and cucumber. Happy Hour is 5-7pm nightly, seven days a week. 8479 Melrose Avenue, 323.782.1104
*As of this morning I am going to Paris in December but I stand firm in my position to indulge.
