Inside this cozy home-style bistro in Toluca Lake is where you'll find soups and sandwiches helmed by "Top Chef" season give contestant Alex Eusebio. As a casual crowd feasts on champagne chicken salads, short rib rolls and lavender duck confit sandwiches, sunlight pours into the room set with rustic chairs and glossy white tables topped with fresh flowers. The restaurant, which boasts a menu full of fresh, homemade entrees like fig salads and caprese ciabatta sandwiches, makes all of its dishes with local ingredients for $10 or less a pop. As its name suggests, the sweet comes in the form of chocolate caramel bread pudding, creme brulee, cookies and cakes, while the salt is delved out in toasted nuts dishes and assorted olive plates.
