I'm not out in LA that often and I was reminded why a couple days ago. Paid parking wherever you go unless it's past 8pm, restaurants are quite pricey, and it's not that fun to just walk around the streets. I do love the vibe (streaming lights) and the types of restaurants there though. We first went to Bäco Mercat then Bottega Louie and lastly Boba 7. You have to have boba sometime in the day. But I'll only talk about Bäco Mercat this time.

Bäco Mercat was pretty good. I thought the portions were quite small for the price you pay when they came out but I was satisfied at the end...sort of. This restaurant's menu changes every season. And though I love the variety of that, it's hard to find on yelp what's really a must-try dish. But these 2 dishes were very tasty. The duck in the Waffle Rilletes was very easy to eat and was flavorful.
