Description

LA Weekly's Description

The cheese-and-charcuterie-intensive inspiration for L.A.'s new generation of wine bars, Suzanne Goin's pan-Mediterranean A.O.C. is a fantasy of a modern small-plates restaurant, the kind of place you drop into for a glass of Friulian Tocai and a plate of sliced prosciutto, a Cairanne and some bacon-wrapped dates with Parmesan - or basically anything that comes with Goin's spicy Catalan-influenced romesco sauce, which would probably be irresistible even if you garnished it with a brick. You could drink and eat like this all night if you remembered to make a reservation - and if A.O.C. didn't unreasonably stop serving so early.

    Suzanne Goin's flagship, a small plate Cali-French abode. Simply designed, simply not cheap. [Eater 38 Member]

    Try the Spanish fried chicken with cumin, pappardelle with nettles and asparagus with lemongrass, and don’t forget the glass of Sancerre.

    AOC is excellent. Sit by the charcuterie bar and ask the cheese person plenty of questions. -Alex Eusebio, Top Chef
