PETIT TROIS

Petit Trois is one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. And I’m including my recent meals in NYC. It’s that good.

There wasn’t a single thing I wouldn’t order again. And several items I still dream about.

First off, the place is super tiny. Don’t come with a group. Don’t even come with more than one person, unless you really, strongly dislike one of those persons.

Stools are your only seating choice, so take note if you have any back issues or enjoy complaining about non-existent back issues.

If you come here, you MUST order the omelet. Definitely share it with your friend as an appetizer. It’s superb. Stuffed with soft French cheese. So silky. So sexy. Omelets are never sexy. Except this one.

I would definitely swipe right on this omelet.

They give you a complimentary crusty baguette to start, so come hungry. Come starving. Nothing on this menu is light. It’s all incredibly decadent French fare and you will love it. Everyone except those back problem complainers. I’m sure you’ll find something to bitch about.

The Croque Madame may seem small but it packs a wallop. It’s pricey, at $23 bucks but you will not leave hungry. Unless you have a hollow leg or tape worm.

We had no complaints about the Confit-Fried Chicken Leg, however, I would not order it above any of the other dishes we tried. The omelet and burger are your two “Must Order” dishes, for sure. “What burger?” you ask.

The Big Mec burger is perfection. So saucy and cheesy. I hate a dry ass burger. This is not that. Simple and sexy. Not as sexy as the omelet. Maybe, more of an ugly sexy. A burger you’d take home and then sneak out the back door in the morning.

Real talk, here. I don’t remember a ton (or anything) about this meal. We came here at the end of a long day exploring downtown LA. At this point in the evening, we were all most definitely very “tired”.

Here are the facts (I think):

The place is lively, the drinks are fun and the food may or may not be good. If that isn’t the most helpful tidbit you’ve ever read, I’m a monkey’s uncle. If anyone tries to tell you that expression is archaic, they can go directly to hell.

On that note….

TROIS FAMILIA

Because I love all things Chef Ludo, I made sure to check out all the two new Trois restaurant additions since I left LA.

Trois Familia is the brand new collaboration between Ludo Lefebvre and the Jon and Vinny team. Since talking about restaurant ownership is about 100% less interesting than talking about food, I’ll stop right there. Google “Trois Familia” if you really care.

Let’s get to it, shall we?

Trois Familia is a cute breakfast and lunch only spot in Silverlake. It closes at 2 pm, which is annoying. People love breakfast all day, as McDonald’s can attest to. Let’s move on.

If you don’t show up right when they open, you’ll be waiting. We waited about 20 minutes. Not bad, for NYC standards.

The dishes are all creative Mexican fare with portions being on the smaller side. Definitely fun to order a bunch of stuff and share. Ok, maybe not fun. I’m almost 40, is anything really “fun” anymore?

The best dish was most definitely the Hash Brown Chilaquiles. Spicy, flavorful, crispy, saucy…eggy? Just a really great dish.

The Poached Omelette sandwich was also great. The caramelized onion gravy looks scary but it made the sandwich.

The Double Decker Potato tacos were just ok. They could have used something else. Maybe some roasted peppers or any kind of seasoning. Thank goodness for the house made hot sauce at our disposal.

The Horchata was a bit pricey at $7 but tasty and lasted the entire meal. I can’t remember the last time any one beverage lasted my entire meal. Unless I was at a drive-thru…

TERRINE

Terrine could serve the most vile food ever and the waiters could strike me directly in the face and force me to tip 50% as my reward…and I would still come back for that damned beautiful outdoor courtyard.

They’ve really lucked out having taken over the old Pane e Vino space, which briefly became the now forgotten Sirena restaurant, and I knew I had to check them out the next time I was in LA.

Everyone’s favorite multi-hyphenate ginger (was Phillip Seymore Hoffman a red head?) Jesse Tyler Ferguson is attached to Terrine which, if I’m being honest, drew me to come here if only to witness the funnyman sipping a martini at the bar.

Well, sadly, JTF was not there. Maybe that’s a good thing, considering the last time I was in this location (during the Sirena days) I had sort of locked myself in the bathroom. Who constructs doors that move sideways?? I panicked that this was going to happen again, so I decided that holding my urine for the entire dinner would be a good character builder.

Now, take a gander at the amount of food we ordered. This was for a hearty group of 6 folks, right?

Wrong.

Two people ordered all this food. Amazing how gluttonous one becomes when one is not paying for one’s dinner.

Tonight’s meal was very meat-centric. There is a ton of meat on the menu, in general. And the portion sizes are quite substantial, so you’ll be taking home leftovers. Hopefully. If not, I worry for your colon.

The Cote de Porc was incredible (could easily feed 3 people) and the Truffle Agnolotti and Broccoli Gratin were out of this world!

Ordering the Half Roasted Duck was unnecessary. It was tasty, yet a mountain of food.

The Charcuterie was impressive, definitely a great starter. Yet, it was almost too filling for an appetizer. That and some cocktails would have been enough.

I guess if the worst thing about a restaurant is their portion sizes are too big, I would say Terrine is in good shape.

Two words that would not describe you, if you consumed our Terrine feast regularly.
