Named for the seasonal winds of Southern France, this local bijou has been transporting diners straight from Sherman Oaks to Lyon for the past 30 years. Inside, find crystal chandeliers, polished brass and red walls to complement the authentic cuisine. The main room features a convivial atmosphere, pleasant din of conversation and tables of four to six diners, making it a welcoming destination among groups.
Begin with gratis blue-cheese puffs, before moving on to the likes of sizzling platters of plump, tender and garlic-buttery escargot à la Bourgogne, nestled into their shells. For dessert, the bread pudding and chocolate soufflé are wonderful and fulfilling, but must be ordered at the beginning of your meal as they require time to bake.
